Granny Squares
Carry your new tablet computer around with style while protecting it from some surface everyday wear and tear. This case is colourful, practical and makes a great gift, too.

Finished size
10 x 8in (25 x 20cm)

To fit a 91⁄2 x 71⁄2in (24 x 19cm) tablet computer

Tension
Each granny square measures 
2 x 2in (5 x 5cm)
One-colour granny squares
(make 40)

Granny’s tip
To make up one side of your tablet case in two-colour granny squares, as I have done (see photo opposite), simply change the colour for the second round.

  • How to make a tablet sleeve. Tablet Computer Case - Step 1
    Step 1

    Ch 4, sl st to form a ring.
    Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as 1 tr), 2 tr, *ch 2, 3 tr; repeat from * 3 times, 
ch 2, sl st into second ch st to complete round (4 sides/4 corners).
    Round 2: Sl st in first ch space, 
ch 2 (counts as 1 tr), (2 tr, ch 2, 3 tr) in same ch space, (3 tr, ch 2, 3 tr) in each following ch space, sl st to complete round, weave in ends 
(4 sides/4 corners).

  • Step 2

    Making up
    You can sew the squares together, but join as you go (see page 44) is a better method when joining lots of different squares together. Join the squares so you have two pieces that are 4 x 5 squares each.

  • Step 3

    Side band
    A band of 3 rows makes the case wide enough to add a piece of foam to the inside to protect your computer tablet.
    Round 1: Colour A. 1 dc in every stitch, sl st to complete round, weave in ends (144 sts).
    Round 2: Colour B. 1 dc in every stitch, sl st to complete round, weave in ends (144 sts).
    Round 3: Colour A. 1 dc in every stitch, sl st to complete round, weave in ends (144 sts).

  • Step 4

    Finishing
    Stitch the two pieces together, matching the stitches as you go and leaving a 12in (30cm) opening for the zip-fastener – stitching one square down along one long side and one square down along the opposite end is just the right size. Hand-stitch the zip-fastener in place.
