Introduction

This cute little case can be made in any type of yarn (I prefer a fun color like this mustard). You can also line it (which I did); either way it's a fashionable way to carry your cell phone!

Materials List

Yarn of any color/type (I chose a medium acrylic blend)
6 mm crochet hook
button
sewing needle

fabric for lining and sewing materials (optional)

Finished Size

The size of your case will be determined by the size of your cell phone.

Gauge

N/A

The Pattern

Chain your desired length, I have a LG Voyager from Verizon and I chained 18. Row 1: SC in second chain from hook and in the rest of the chain. Do not turn. Continue to SC on the other side of the chain. This will complete 1 round. Row 2+: Continue to SC on both sides until desired depth is obtained. (This will depend on our phone. I crocheted 12 rounds for my particular phone.) Button Hook: On your last round SC until middle of second side. Chain 9 or so (depending on width of your phone. Skip one SC, join to next SC and continue to SC until the end of the round. Button: Choose button and sew to opposite side of button hook.  For information on lining the case go to www.newmillie.blogspot.com

I'm loving this one! You should have a contest on "How many ways can you use something just like this" because I came up with a few right off the top of my head.

This is the cutest little thing ever! I hope someone will be able to help me, a beginner, with my question.

I've worked up a few of these and not sure what exactly I'm doing wrong....my question is in regards to joining the rounds/starting a new round. Do you join with a slip stitch and then chain 1 to start a new round? and do you work into the slip stitch or skip over it? or what is the best way to stop/start rounds like this?

Thanks for any help!

I agree that it is the cutest pattern, but I had trouble getting started too. I looked up another bag pattern that I had that started in the same way, with the two sides of the chain, and that pattern joined each round with a slip stitch, then chain one, then first single crochet of the next row into the same slip stitch. Am almost finished, and looks great!

My cell phone thanks you!
