Take the traditional hobby of crochet and combine it with high-tech gear, and what do you get? Crochet tablet cases, laptop sleeves, and so much more, of course! If you thought crochet was limited to creating scarves, cowls, and socks, then you need to discover the creative and amazing world of crochet electronics patterns. With a bit of imagination and some yarn, you can create a custom crochet cozy for electronics.
There’s more to think about than just smartphones and laptops, too. You can crochet sleeves and cozies for eReaders, headphones, and MP3 players. And if you hate how hard it is to text while wearing mittens, then you’ll love the on-trend fingerless glove patterns that are available.
There are a few things to keep in mind when creating a crochet tablet cover or crochet laptop sleeve. Yarn in a light weight might not provide enough protection to keep your expensive gear safe from bumps and falls. Yarn with a heavier weight, as well as yarn that is crocheted with a tight tension, may be a better option; however, you can and should still use a protective sleeve on your electronic device. Many of the following crochet electronics patterns can be adjusted to fit the dimensions of almost any tablet or phone. Although you can get a more accurate fit by putting the phone or tablet into your project as you go, you can also look at the manufacturer’s website for the product’s exact dimensions.
Crochet tablet covers, headphone covers, and other items are a fun way to create a custom gift for that person on your list who already has everything. For a truly personalized look, use yarn in the color of the recipient’s alma mater or favorite sports team. Don’t forget to include a button! A decorative and super fashionable button can make just about any electronics cozy a truly unique accessory. These patterns tend to be easy to make, so you could use these crochet electronics patterns as last-minute gift ideas. Before embarking on a project to create that perfect crochet laptop sleeve for someone, double-check that you know which model of electronics your pattern will cover.
