In blogger land, it’s time to start working on Christmas and fall (crazy, right?). I have some super fun things planned. I think this will be the best crochet season yet! In between the massive design-fest, I am using extra time to go through old patterns and refresh them a bit. I design this crochet iPad pouch last spring, and oh! it did not turn out the way I wanted. But I had spent so much time I couldn’t bring myself to abandon it. I pushed the Publish button with reckless abandon. I finally found myself ready to redo the pattern for the crochet iPad pouch this week, and man-o-man, the updated version is much, much prettier!
The pattern for this crochet iPad pouch is more of a guide. I wanted to give you basic directions so you could make it fit whatever device you own. You could make this pouch for your phone, tablet or laptop! My iPad mini is in the photo.
BOW CROCHET IPAD POUCH – FREE CROCHET PATTERN
1. Work 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in each st across, leaving the last ch unworked. Work 4 sc in last ch. Working across the other side of teh chain, sc in each ch across, leaving the last ch unworked. Work 2 sc in last ch (the same ch as your first 2 sc). Count your stitches. This will be the stitch count for each round.

8. 3 sc in same st. Sc in each st across, leaving last st unworked. 3 sc in last st. Sc down the side, working the stitches as even as possible. Work 3 sc in last space. Sc across the bottom. 3 sc in last. Sc up the side, working as even as possible. Join with first sc.
Tie off, leaving a long tail.
- Pin the bow piece onto the pouch, letting the edges hang over the sides slightly.
- Using the long tail, sew the bow piece onto the pouch using a simple running stitch. (repeat for the other side using a separate piece of yarn.) It is easier to squash the pouch so the side is in the middle.
- Pinch the middle of the bow. Wrap a length of yarn around it. Be sure to wrap the ends opposite ways and tight a firm knot behind the bow to hide it.
- Using the ends of the bow middle, tack the middle of the bow into the pouch.
- Finished by sewing on a button on the opposite side of the loop.
Isn’t it adorable? Much better than the original in my opinion:
You can whip one of these cute pouches up for each of your devices! It would be really cute for a phone or iPod. What do you think?
