Crochet Kindle Cover ta dahhh and pattern!

My lovely fella treated me to a Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday (no more squinting at my phone when reading in bed at night HOORAY!) and so I quickly whipped up a puff cover for it to stop it from getting scratched and knocked as I am a clumsy sod.

Crochet Kindle Cover

For Christmas I made my mum a puff stitch scarf using All About Ami’s Puff Stitch Pattern and had a little left over yarn – it is so squishy and the puffs are perfect for cushioning my kindle when I plonk it on the side.

The Puff Stitch Scarf I made for my mum

I altered the pattern ever so slightly so the fit was more snug - my kindle cover is made from 11 puffs instead of 12 for the scarf.

The pattern for my Kindle cover is as follows:

Aran weight yarn and a 5.5mm hook

Chain 24

Row 1: In the 4th chain from your hook, work your first puff stitch. Then *ch1, skip next ch, puff* repeat 10 times. (11 puffs)

Row 2: Ch3, turn. *puff in next ch sp, ch1* repeat 10 times ending on a puff in your ch3 sp from row1. (11 puffs)

Repeat Row 2 10 more times.

First side of your kindle cover complete!

Make another side panel the same way and then sew both panels together.  Done!

  1. What brand of yarn is that?

  2. Would it work if I worked the stitches on both sides of the foundation chain? To make a cover as it is without having to make two panels and stitch them together?
