Crochet granny squares.

Make enough to get a coverage the size you want. It’s time to have fun testing color combinations. You can make squares of a single color or alternate colors at each rank. If you want a very colorful cover, why not try to mix complementary colors within the same square?

Assemble the granny squares.

Start by putting them in rows with cast stitches, then tie the rows together with cast stitches as well. You can also, if you wish, crochet a border to give a more finished look to the cover.

Wow! Nice work.

Zigzag rows

Make rows of vertical zigzags.
Crochet a basic chain. The number of stitches must be a multiple of 12, plus 2 stitches.

Row 1: one stitch (sc) in the second stitch in the air (ch), then * 5 sc, skip 1 ch, 5 sc, 3 sc in the next ch. Repeat from * until the last 12 ml. Then make 5 dc, skip 1 ch, 5 dc, 2 dc in the last ch, 1 ch and return the piece.

Rank 2: make 2 sc in the second ch, then * 5 sc, skip 2 ch, 5 sc, 3 sc in the next ch. Repeat from * until the last 12 ml. 5ms, skip 2 ml, 5 sc, 2 sc in the last ch, 1 sc and return the work. Repeat the second row until the desired length is achieved.

Make rows of horizontal zigzags.

Follow the same procedure as for vertical zigzags, but stitch only in the back loop of each stitch. This will create a zigzag effect that will give relief to your cover.

Completed.
