Rainbow Sherbert Tablet Cover

Handmade tablet covers are an awesome way to show your personality: just use your favorite colors and your favorite stitches!
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rainbow-sherbert-tablet-cover

This uses a simple wave stitch pattern and Rainbow colors to create a fun design that reminds me of Sherbet (hence the name).


I designed this tablet cover for my Ipad mini. I made it in landscape orientation because that's the way I typically use my tablet.This cover measures at 9" x 5.5" and it has some stretch, so it should fit over slightly larger devices. It fits over my Ipad mini with the hard case on it.


MATERIALS
Worsted Weight 100% Cotton Yarn
G/6/4.0mm Crochet Hook
1" Button
Yarn needle

STITCH GUIDE
arnd = around
BLO = back loop only
dc = double crochet
dec = decrease
hdc - half double crochet
sc = single crochet
