RootBeer Laptop Sleeve - Free Pattern

RootBeer Laptop Sleeve
Free Crochet Pattern

Happy Monday everyone! This week's yarn review will be a little delayed, because I'm bringing you a pattern instead! I do all my posting from a little 13" Macbook. With two little tots running around my house, the aluminum body of my laptop gets so many fingerprints and smudges! So, I designed a simple sleeve to keep it in when it's not in use. The pattern is easily adjusted for laptops of different sizes and even for tablets, too! It's named for this adorable colorway of Sweet Roll Yarn. Enjoy!

Materials:
- H (5mm) Hook
- 1 ball Premier Sweet Roll yarn (shown in “Root Beer”) or similar. You will use nearly the whole ball.
- Button (Pattern uses a 1.5” button, but this can be adjusted easily)
- Tapestry needle
- Scissors




Notes:
- Bag is worked in joined rounds. Flap is worked in turned rows.
- Join each round with a slip stitch to the first stitch of the round.
- Chain 1 at the beginning of a round never counts as a stitch.
- Stitch counts are in parenthesis
- For a sleeve without the flap, work rounds 1-47 as normal. On round 48, work a decrease centered in each corner. Fasten off and weave in ends.
- This sleeve is designed for a 13” Macbook laptop. The dimensions are about 9” wide by 13.5” tall, not including the flap. The sleeve can be made larger or smaller by adjusting the starting chain and the number of rows.
Gauge:
1” = 4 rows. 1” = 4.5 stitches.
