Crochet Boutique Laptop Sleeve

Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®


11 sc and 12 rows = 4"/10cm

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


To adjust size to fit your laptop, measure its width and multiply by 2.75. Add 1 for turning chain and chain this amount. Work as instructed until piece is as twice as long as laptop, plus 6"/15cm for flap. Fasten off and finish as directed.


Ch 41.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across—40 sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each across—40 sc.
Rows 3–79: Rep row 2.
Fasten off.

Using yarn needle, weave in ends.
Lay piece flat with RS facing. Fold short end up 10"/25cm, leaving rem 6"/15cm for flap. Sew sides, turn to RS.
Upper Straps
Cut 2 pieces of belting, each 5"/13cm long. Loop one end of belting through 2 D-rings, with flat side of rings in fold. Pull strap through and fold over approx 1"/2.5cm. Pin and sew strap tog near raw edge to enclose rings. Fold other end of strap under ½"/1cm, pin and sew as before. Rep for second strap. Apply fray retardant to raw edges of each strap.
Measure 3"/8cm in from one side of flap and 2"/5cm up from bottom of flap and pin strap (with D-rings hanging to bottom).
Sew strap in place. Rep for second strap.
Lower Straps
Cut 2 pieces of belting 7½"/19cm long. Fold one end of belting under ½"/1cm, pin and sew near raw edge. Fold other end of strap under ½"/1cm with raw edge turned toward opposite side (so raw edge will not show when bag is fastened), pin and sew near raw edge. Rep for second strap. Apply fray retardant to raw edges.
Measure 3"/8cm in from one side of bag and 1"/2.5cm up from bottom of bag (making sure to align with strap on flap) and pin. Sew strap in place. Rep for second strap.
