*FREE PATTERN* Kindle & Nook Cover!!

Worsted weight yarn (I used 100% cotton)
H hook
Needle for weaving ends

Stitches used:
Chain, sc, hdc

For all three:
STOP for Kindle Fire!
Chain 19.
3 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook.
Sc in each ch across to the end. Work 3 sc in the last chain. Working in the opposite side of the chain, sc across. Join with slst in the 1st sc.
Chain 1. Work 2 sc in the first st, 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st. Sc in the next 16 sts. Work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st. Join with slst in the 1st sc.
Chain 1. Sc in each stitch around.
Repeat 25 times (for a total of 28 rounds).
STOP for Nook eReader!

For Kindle Fire & Nook Tablet:
Repeat 4 more times (for a total of 32 rounds).

For Nook Tablet:
Repeat 4 more times (for a total of 36 rounds).
STOP for Nook Tablet!

Stop here if you just want to be able to slide your device in and out of the case. Continue if you’d like a flap that folds over the top to keep it from sliding out.
For the flap, we’ll work in rows instead of rounds. You’ll need to start at one of the ends, so if you’re in the middle somewhere, just work a slip stitch in each stitch until you get to one of the ends.
Chain 1. Work 1 hdc in the first st and in the next 16 sts.
Chain 1, turn. Work 1 hdc in each st across.
Repeat 4 more times (or until you reach your desired length for the flap, when your device is inside.)

For the buttons: Fold the flap over with the device inside and decide where you’d like your buttons to be. They’ll need to be small enough to slide through the hdc’s. Make sure they are small enough and then sew them on!
