Free Pattern: 2DS Pokeball Cover

This is a 2DS Pokeball Cover! It is 5.5” tall and 6.5” wide, the perfect size for one 2DS. It can also fit a 3DS or a 3DS XL but it will not be quite as snug. You can download the pattern as a PDF here or you can find it below. Hopefully I will be able to sell these on my Etsy shop in the near future when my bank problems are resolved.

I really like how this turned out and I intend on making similar cases to hold the other styles of DSs. In the pattern I include how to make this cover and also how to make just a sleeve without the protective flap that goes over it. Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the sleeve just yet, but it is the exact same thing minus the flap.
Instead of crocheting the button you should just sew on a regular white button, but unfortunately I didn't have any at the time so I had to improvise. However, I think it looks better this way as it gives it a more authentic Pokeball-ish look. 


 Worsted weight yarn in white, black, red

See pictures above if you need help with placement

 Sew the button onto the front of the cover over the black stripe.
 If you made a protective flap: make sure to sew only through the middle of the button. You will need the edge of the button to be free in order for the strap to wrap around the button. I have included a diagram of where you can sew for further clarification.

And that's it! Happy crocheting!
