Nook/Kindle Cover Pattern - Crochet

As promised, here is the pattern for my Nook/Kindle Cover:

Hook: 8.0 mm (L)

Yarn: Reynolds Lopi, 1 skein, 110 yds, LOPI-0738 Cranberry Heather

Gauge: Row gauge is not important, as you will just repeat until piece measures 20". The stitch gauge would be approximately 1 shells = 1" with the entire width measuring 6 1/2" across.

Adjust the gauge, if necessary, by adding multiples of 3. Basically, you want to make the strip wide enough so that when you fold it over and sew it, your Nook or Kindle will fit snugly inside.

Ch 19

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook & sc across (18 s.c.)
Row 2: ch 1, (sc, ch1, dc) in 1st st to form V, (skip next 2 sts, sv in next st) across to last 2 sts, skip next st, hdc in last st. ch 1 and turn - you should have 6 V stitches.
Row 3: (sc, ch1, dc) in each ch 1 space across, hdc in turning ch 1 of previous row. Ch 1 & turn - again, you should have 6 V stitches.

Repeat Row 3 until strip measures 20”. Fasten off.


Fold the strip around the Nook/Kindle, to make sure you have the right measurement for the “pocket.”

Keep the strip folded, start at the bottom, and crochet the folded strip together (using sc), to create the pocket.

When you get to the "flap," crochet around in sc for a border.

Then, continue connecting the folded strip on the other side, forming the other side of the pocket. fasten off and cut yarn.

You can then sew snaps for the closure, or just crochet a long chain to use as a cord to tie up the bag.


  1. I like this. I'm going to try it soon!

  2. Hi Wildknitter! I need your help! This pattern is adorable, but I unfortunatly started having trouble for some reason after row 1, beginning of row 2. Do you turn, or something else? Thanks in advance!

  3. Tiffany - you have to turn at the end of each row. :D

  4. Thankyou. Ill try again! Happy new year!

  5. Can you please tell me what type of Kindle this is for? I am trying to crochet a cover for the Kindle 3G + Wi-Fi which is 7.5"x4.8"x0.335" and I am wondering if it will fit in this. It is for a friend so I don't have it try and see if it will fit. Thanks!

  6. what does "sv" mean?

  7. Can you email me this pattern to gemmam1987@gmail.com?
