Stardust Tablet Case – a new FREE mosaic crochet pattern
I’m really excited to introduce you to the Stardust tablet case, a new FREE mosaic crochet pattern.
Last year, the lovely folk at Crochet Society asked if I’d like to come up with a design for them for an upcoming crochet box. The theme was “books and spells” and the yarn was the gorgeously richly coloured blue and brown aran yarn you can see in the pictures.
I was having a bit of a mosaic crochet phase at the time, so I scratched my head, did a bit of swatching, and came up with the Stardust Tablet Case.
The yarn is a lovely recycled acrylic yarn from Bella Coco. However, you could easily swap it for another aran yarn. A cotton yarn could also look really good, for example.
The finished case measures 21 x 29 cm and is designed to fit a standard iPad.
The pattern includes written instructions, an explanation of how to do mosaic crochet, and a chart.
Even if you’re new to mosaic crochet, the instructions should be sufficient for you to do this project and, if you have any questions, you can always drop me a message.

Mosaic and tapestry crochet
As you may have noticed, most of my designs use tapestry crochet rather then mosaic crochet. However, mosaic crochet is another great crochet technique that I really love. It has a slightly different look to tapestry crochet but can create some stunning patterns. It also results in a slightly thicker work, so it’s a really good choice for a tablet case (especially with aran yarn) as that extra thickness gives it some protection against any knocks or bumps.
