Crochet Tutorial: iPad Cover

This crocheted iPad case is made in an elegant mandala design. It is much prettier than the typical industrial designed cases and has a personal touch. Fits the iPad 2 & other large iPads. It has a button enclosure and one can easily hook up headphones and the charger. Follow along to the video tutorial on how to create this beautiful case.

Rnd 1: 2sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1sc in each ch across until last ch, 3sc in last ch, turn work to work on opposite side of ch. Sc across. (insert stitch marker at this point and after each round)

Rnd 2: hdc in first st, sl st in next, *hdc in next st, sl st in next st, repeat from *

Rnds 3-26: Repeat round 2 (you can make it taller by continuing the pattern until your piece is as tall as you want it to be)

At this point, you can decide if you like the outside or inside design better. I turned mine inside out and had that be my outer shell. (see video for explanation)
