Chevron laptop cover

by Kelley Freeman

This is how mine turned out. It looks pretty good and fits my 14in ultrabook with a little wiggle room. It could probably fit a 15in laptop without any problems. I may line it with fabric to make it sturdier in the future but as it stands, this looks and works pretty good for now.

 

 

Materials:

light worsted weight yarn (2 colors)

H hook

yarn needles

 

Stitches & Abbreviations Used

dc - double crochet

ch - chain

sts - stitches

sl st - slip stitch


Pattern

1. With color A, Chain 75 (to make shorter or longer, add or subtract 7 stitches)

2. Dc in 4th ch from hook. *Dc in next 7 sts. Skip next 2 sts, dc in next 7 sts. (dc, ch 1, dc)* Repeat until last st, where you will do 2 dc in last st. 

3. Ch 3 (counts as a dc). Dc in first st. *Dc in next 7 sts, skip 2 sts, dc in next 7 sts, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next st (which will be the ch 1 sp)* Repeat until last st where you will do 2 dc in last st (which is the ch 3 from the previous row). 

 

 

Optional: Repeat step three two more times, then switch to color B. Repeat step three, switching colors every four rows (or as desired), until piece measures about 20 - 22 inches long. Sew in ends and fold over to desired shape (I made mine look like a foldover clutch, you may prefer something more bag like) and stitch together sides. 

 

Look stylish as hell.
