I got a Barnes and Noble Nook way back in February before the price was slashed, and a few months later, I sat down and finally crocheted it a cover, and a few months later, I'm finally posting it to Craftster!  Yay!

I don't remember the name or brand of the yarn. I do know it's 100% cotton, light worsted weight, and was discontinued (as so many of my yarns are, it seems).  The flat-out adorable buttons for my case are from Dill Buttons (dill-buttons.com), and you can get them at Hobby Lobby.

So, basically, I worked in the round and made this:



The fancy "action shot," if you will. 



Buttoned up with the Nook inside.  I still need to work on my last row not being weirdly curved when I do buttonholes.



And a close-up on the button, which I adore. 

So far it's been a sturdy little monster.  The yarn is a little too stretchy for the strap to be very useful, but as I'm usually throwing my Nook into a bag with other stuff it in anyway, the strap is moot.

I've got a poll on my blog to see if anyone wants a pattern or tutorial for it.  I've got the notes I worked from, but I don't have anything formal that doesn't need to be deciphered from my weird notes.

Ta-da!

Gayle
