Easy 7" Tablet Cozy Cover with Flower Applique

I made this cozy for my 7" tablet and just when I posted the picture of it at my FB page, I immediately got orders maybe it's because tablets and e-readers are hot these days. So I decided to take note of the pattern and share it here. Pattern is very simple a beginner can do.

Red Heart high bulk acrylic yarn
Crochet Hook 4mm
Red Heart high bulk acrylic yarn (any color of your choice. I also used the same brand of yarn for the applique)
Another 3 colors of  Red Heart for the applique mark as A, B, and C.
1 medium sized button
Tapestry needle and thread

Gauge: 10 chain / hdc = 2 inches
           6 rows of hdc = 2 inches

Abbreviations Used
st = stitch
ch = chain
sl = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet


First start with a slip knot on the hook and ch 36.

Round 1
1 sc into 2nd ch from hook and into each of the next 34sts, 2 sc into the last ch.
Working on the other side/ unused stitches, 1sc into the first ch and until end.
Join with sl to 1st sc.

Round 2
Note: I used standing double crohet technique by moogly. For the tutorial click here.
1 hdc in each stitch around. Join at first hdc.

Round 3 - 17
Repeat Round 2

Round 18 - Lst Round
Sc in each st around. Fasten off and weave ends.

For the tie and button:
Chain 30. 1 sc into second ch from hook and into the remaining chains. Fasten off and weave end.
Search for the center at the other side of the case. Using a tapestry needle and thread, sew both tips at Round 16. Fasten off.
Now sew the button at the opposite or front side of the case.

Flower applique:

Make a slip knot.
Round 1
Ch 3(counts as first dc), 9 dc in ring, slip st at first dc. Join color B.

Round 2
Chain 3, dc in same st. 2dc in each st across. Slip stitch at the top of chain 3. Join color C.

Round 3
Skip 2 sts *dc 9 in next st, skip 2 sts, ss in next st, take hook behind petal just made and insert from front to back of the next dc from the center of the petal, pull yarn and loop on hook.** Continue for the next petal, dc in next st after ss of previous petal. Repeat from * to ** 4 times ending 5th petal with slip stitch in dc before the center of the first petal, then take hook behind petal just made and slip stitch in top of first dc of first petal. Fasten off.

Round 4
Join B in first dc of a petal. Ch 1, (sc in next st, ch 1)8 times, sc in slip stitch. Fasten off. Repeat procedure in each petal.

Finish by sewing the flower at left side of the case. :)
