Happy Wednesday, friends! Last week I decided to get organized (which is normally an exercise in futility), but I chose to start small and simply organize my crochet ideas for the next few months. It’s amazing how useful lists can be! I wrote a nice, long list of potential ideas for the summer/early fall and I am working on crossing them off. I have finished two ideas already, so I hope this will be a fun, crochet-filled summer for me (and of course, for you too!). This pretty little crochet chevron iPad Mini Case was on my list and came together beautifully (it’s so nice when that happens). It’s SO nice to cross it off.
For this pouch I used two colors of Comfy Worsted and one color of Comfy Shine (both amazingly soft cotton blends). I put “Whisker” in the materials list when I actually used a limited edition Comfy Heather. It isn’t available anymore, but Whisker is a very beautiful gray, and it very close in color, so that one would work perfectly, too.

Gauge: 8 sts = 2″
Note: You can easily size the pattern up or down! To do this, have your device handy. Work a foundation chain this is slightly wider than your device, and is an even number. Work row 2 (adjusting for your original chain count). The width of this row should be the exact width of your device. If it’s too wide, count how many extra sts you have, and minus that from your original foundation chain.
1. Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc 24. (25 sts)
2. Ch 2. Dc2tog. Dc 10. 3 dc in next st. Dc 10. Dc2tog. Turn. (25 sts)
3. Ch 1. Sc2tog. Sc 10. 3 sc in next st. Sc 10. Sc2tog. Turn. (25 sts)

Join 2nd color.
6. – 9. Repeat rows 2- 5 respectively.
Join 3rd color.
10. – 13. Repeat rows 2-5 respectively.
Repeat the sequence of working 4 rows in each color, alternating sc and dc each row until you reach Row 37.
For the last two rows, you will reverse the colors. This will keep the pattern continuous when your pouch is sewn and constructed.
Work the gray rows the same as the others.
42. Repeat row 2.
43. Ch 2. Dc2tog. Dc 9. Ch 3. Sk 3 sts. Dc in next st. Dc 8. Dc2tog.
Fold of the the button of the piece and line it up with the bottom of the 10th color stripe.
Holding it so the top points up, start on the bottom right. Using one of your three colors, join yarn and sc as evenly as you can up the side, sewing the side together. Continue past the two layers and sc up the top flap. Sc 2 in the top corner so it lays nicely. Sc across the top, working 5 sc in the 3 ch space from the last row. Sc in the rest of the sts, working 2 in the next corner. Sc down the remaining side of the flap and tie off.
Weave in your ends.
Finish by sewing a button in the middle of the first color stripe to correspond with the button hole at the top of the flap.
