Free Pattern: Colourful Case

Date: 12th February 2014 | Category: 50th issue, Celebrate, Free, Pattern

Colourful Case by Ali Campbell



A modern piece in vertical stripes, these cases are a great way to use up all your yarn scraps. Use your loved-ones favourite colours and embroider it with a special message so they can carry a piece of your heart with them. Find the pattern for the Tablet Case in issue 44 of Inside Crochet magazine.


  • Any DK acrylic yarn will achieve a similar effect to the sample piece. This project is perfect for using up stash yarns.
  • 4mm and 5mm hooks
  • Darning Needle
  • Buttons (various shape, colour and size)

Tension is not important for this project, but do fit the work to your tablet/phone occasionally to ensure a snug fit. If it seems a little small, don’t worry, with the double crochet edging it will fit snuggly.

15 x 9cm/6 x 3½in
