I had a hankering to crochet something, but I wanted instant gratification. So I grabbed some yarn and made a coin purse. It ended up on top of my DS and I thought, "Wow, that would make a cute DS case." And thus, (even though I have a store bought case) the crocheted DS case was born.
I just winged it, but if you'd like a tut I can make another and write it down as I go.
OK, here's one I made for my bf in his favorite colors: Subaru Rally Blue and Yellow:http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k236/amigurl55/100_1680.jpghttp://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k236/amigurl55/100_1682.jpg
And the tut! This pattern is for a DS Lite, but I have made notes for the original DS.
Size H crochet hook
Worsted weight yarn in 2 colors. Main color= mc, contrasting color= cc
Scissors, yarn needle, etc.
With mc ch 16 (for original DS, ch 19)
Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch accross. Ch 2, turn.
*Hdc accross. Ch 2, turn.* Repeat until piece measures 14".
Change to cc and sc accross for 2 rows. FO.
Fold piece with right sides together leaving a 3 inch flap. Sew up the sides. I usually add a dab of glue to hold my knots since they always seem to come out. Turn so the right side is facing out. Add velcro or a button for closure.
With cc, ch 4. Slst into last st to form a ring.
Ch 6. Slst into ring. Repeat 4 times. FO.
Sew or glue flowers to case wherever you'd like them to be.
