E-Reader Cozy...

Happy Father's Day - I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful day.

I love reading. I love my e-reader. I love to crochet.

So, I made a crocheted cozy for my e-reader.

This was an easy, fun crochet project. I used some leftover Cotton-Ease to make it.

I started by crocheting a chain to the width of my e-reader case and then doubling it. The brown stripes are three rows of half-couble crochet and the blue stripes are one row of single crochet. For the back, I made one row of double crochet on each short edge and then stitched them together with yarn and a large needle. Then I slip stitched the bottom up with yarn. At the top, I made a row of double crochet and then a row of single crochet. I created the fold over piece with single crochet at a width and length I liked. To make the opening for the button, I used a chain stitch. I sewed the button in place with the brown yarn.

This was definitely a "make-it-up-as-I-go" pattern. I started and then pulled it all out three different times. I can see a few things I would do differently if I made another one. But, for the most part, I am happy with how it turned out.
