Free Crochet Pattern: Beachrock Tablet Cover

[Updated September 6, 2018]

With summer comes pleasant thoughts of the beach — sandy shores, waves lapping against the shore. I wanted to emulate that feeling with this tablet cover by using stripes of aqua, tan, and cream.

The first few rows are worked in single crochet before beginning a textured pattern of single crochet and double crochet. It is a very easy pattern and works up quickly! Add a bamboo toggle with natural cord for just the right beachside touch.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: Fits tablet dimensions of 6 3/4” (17 cm) by 9” (22.5 cm)

Medium weight yarn (approximately 30 yards each of colors A, B, and C)
Crochet hook G (4.50 mm)
Yarn needle
Toggle button
6” of cord
crochet yarn size 4

4 sc = 1’’
4 rows = 1’’
Gauge Swatch: 1’’w x 1’’h (2.5 cm x 2.5 cm) ch 5.
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across: 4 sc
Row 2 – 4: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 4 sc
Finish off.

Color pattern:
6 rows of color A
6 rows of color B
6 rows of color C
repeat pattern, ending with 5 rows of color C

Note: The pattern is worked in a spiral. Use stitch markers to keep track of the beginning of each round.

Sew toggle on with yarn needle and yarn. Attach cord to back by threading both ends through the material and knotting inside, leaving a loop on the outside.

    Attempting the beach rock tablet cover. I am usually pretty good at following directions but how does 28 chains convert to 58 sc. I understand in the round but the initial 28 chains doesn’t make it wide enough for a tablet. Thanks for any clarification.

      Hello Marian,
      I recounted and realized it should be 56 sts in each round. I have made the proper corrections to the pattern. Sorry for the trouble!
