Shortly after we got the Nintendo Switch a couple months ago, a few reports came out of screens getting scratched from the dock. After seeing different solutions, I was inspired to crochet a dock cover. I found some yarn thin enough to protect the Switch screen without forcing the dock into the wrong position while in use. With the right yarn, and a pixelated Pokemon graph, the Nintendo Switch Dock Cover quickly came to be.
To complete this pattern, you will need to know sc intarsia, and will need the following materials:

With background color, ch 50.
Skip first chain, sc in next 49 ch spaces.
At end of each row, ch 1 and turn. Each row will have 49 stitches. Make color changes according to graph. As in the graph, the final project will have 42 rows.
Once finished, tie off end and weave in all lose ends. This project will also need to be blocked. The final project will measure 7″ across and 6″ high after blocking. For instructions on blocking, view this post for blocking acrylic yarn.
After blocking, fold the completed project in half with right sides facing each other. On each side, join background color with a standing sc at two corners and sc in each stitch through both sides. Once both sides are connected, flip completed project right side out.
Seeing the completed dock cover, now I especially can’t wait for Pokemon to come to the Nintendo Switch!
