Zig Zag Book Or Tablet Sleeves
" This book sleeve crochet pattern is a great unisex gift idea for any book lover – regardless of whether they prefer physical books or to read from a device like a kindle or iPad. Written in US terms and for 3 sizes (you get them all in this crochet pattern pdf download!) This book sleeve crochet pattern works up quickly in #4 weight (aran) yarn and is a perfect stash and scrap buster. This crochet book sleeve pattern will quickly become a go-to accessory. The texture is so pretty and through planning where you change your colours you can really make this project your own. I do tell you where I changed the colours for each of my versions. You can opt to crochet the lining as per the pattern which will give you a thicker fabric to help protect your books and devices as well as the corners of the cover. Or you can use material if you are comfortable lining the pouch with material (although note that I do not provide instructions for how to do this). DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Intermediate "
