I could work this up quick as a bunny. ( I am yet to sew the lining though)

I was looking for a good sleeve pattern for my MacBook when I found some leftover yarn in my yarn stash. Then I decided to make this.


This is made for my 11'', but you can make it to fit any size by having an appropriate number of chains in your foundation row. This sleeve is designed to stretch slightly to fit.

Materials:Light worsted weight yarn with two colors (I used Grey and Pink)
3.5mm hook

Stiches Used:st - stitch
SS - slip stitch
CH - chain
HDC - half double stitch
DC - double crochet
DC2TOG - two double crochets together

Pattern:
CH 150 with your primary color, ( number of stitches should be multiple of 10, total length of the chain should be 2x long side of the laptop ) make a SS to the 1st CH and make a ring.
For this pattern you will be working in a round.


ROUND 1: CH 2, HDC to the next chain,  *( DC into each of next 6 chains, HDC into each of next 4 chains ) repeat from * 14 times, DC into each of next 6 chains, HDC into each of next 2 chains,  JOIN

Ripple starts from the next round
ROUND 2: CH2, HDC to the next st,  *( DC into each of next 2 sts, 2DC into each of next 2 sts, DC into each of next 2 sts,   2 HDC2TOG into next 4 sts ) repeat from * 13 times, DC into each of next 2 sts, 2 DC into each of next 2 sts, DC into each of next 2 sts, HDC2TOG into next 2 sts, JOIN

Repeat ROUND 2,  28 times. ( until you reach the appropriate height of the sleeve)

You can mix the colors as you prefer. I did 1st 3 rows with grey, next 2 rows with pink, again next 3 rows with grey and next row with pink, then I continued with grey until 28th row.


Round 2 might not be clear if you are a beginner, this diagram will help you to understand how the ripple works.

For the flap change the color if desired, I used the pink color. After finishing 28th row you have to turn the piece and work on both sides.

Turn your piece and then on the wrong side,
CH2, HDC to the next st,  *( DC into each of next 2 sts, 2DC into each of next 2 sts, DC into each of next 2 sts,   2 HDC2TOG into next 4 sts ) repeat from * 6 times, DC into each of next 2 sts, 2 DC into each of next 2 sts, DC into each of next 2 sts, HDC2TOG into next 2 sts, TURN

Repeat.

Continue until flap is long enough.

Finish off and weave ends.


Sew together the bottom or join with slip stitch seam.
Well you can do the seam how ever you want. There are so many different ways to join crocheted fabrics together.

This is my very first blog post and my first tutorial. I have never patterned up any thing before. I kind of just made things up as I went along. I hope to do more tutorials in future with crochet basics.

How was my first tutorial?
Let me know your feedbacks. Its you and only you who can help me improve my pattern making skills. :)
