Crochet Laptop Case

When I first started crocheting, I had no idea how endless the possibilities were.  I only knew blankets, hats and scarves.  After nearly 5 years of crocheting, I am finally starting to explore new crochet avenues and loving it!

After starting this blog, I found I was carting my laptop around way more than I ever did before.  I was bringing my laptop along with me when we went to visit my in-laws in the city.  The built-in babysitting Nana and Papa provided gave me some time to work on the blog without distraction.  However, carrying my laptop around loose in my crochet bag wasn’t quite the safest set up. That is why I dreamed up this handy case, because it just seemed fitting for a crochet blogger to have a crochet laptop case.

I love when crochet creations can be so pretty and so practical at the same time.  There is something so amazing about using some yarn and a hook to create something you need instead of buying it from a store.  I am so thrilled with how this laptop cover turned out!

For this project, I used Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn.  I saw this yarn on the shelf a few months back, and I loved the texture and couldn’t wait to put it to use.  My original plan was to make a blanket or a pillow with it, but it seemed like a great choice for my laptop case.  The yarn won’t ball up, fray, lose its shape, or wear out.  It is a very durable yarn, and that makes it great for projects that will experience rougher wear.  I cannot wait to work with this yarn again very soon!

I have a 15 inch MacBook so the pattern is written for that size, however, it can be easily adjusted for your size of computer.  All you will need to do is shorten or lengthen the initial chain, and shorten or lengthen the amount of rows. I made the initial chain about the same length as my computer, and I made the height the same as well.  The single crochet border will add a bit of height and length so the case isn’t too tight to fit around your computer. 

The pattern is made up of single and double crochet stitches that when worked in the same stitch they are collectively called the suzette stitch.  Such a beautiful stitch, and it looks the same on the back and the front of the work. The pattern requires quite a bit of colour changes, which means lots of ends to weave in, but I found if you do your single crochet border over top of the ends it can save you a lot of time weaving in each end individually.
