I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

The Nook Case


The Nook Case (4)
Originally uploaded by Crafty Andy
Happy Sunday everyone and here I am on a Lazy Weekend. I wanted to crochet my Nook a Case from my Homespun and here it is. I also added some Velcro for the benefit of closing and opening the bag. I use an H hook 5mm and I used a combination of sc, and hdc all over with a border of mostly sc. I then single crochet the sides together and hand stitched the Velcro closure. The other pictures are showing you the way it works.

Here you have a bit of a Peek of how it fits inside the case.  The pattern is simple and with the homespun it hides well the fact that is uneven.  Don't take me wrong the uneven yarn was on purpose and sometimes we want to take advantage of the uneven  yarn with the stitch for texture and design.

I was able to compare the size as I was making it along, I did not want to make it a lot bigger or shorter, when I was done with the pattern I only had about 3 yards left of this yarn.  I do like the way it looks and how well protected it will be in the home!

When it is closed it looks a lot like a clutch, but no need to go gender discriminatory here, it is just a Nook and it needs a cover.  There are many ideas that came through my head last night.  I will have a Knit version and will probably recreate the Crochet Version and see about posting it.  Yesterday I saw a guy reading on the street with a Nook and I said to myself, I have one of those.  Thanks for stopping by!
