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
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.



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

"Seven days without crochet makes one weak"

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.

Very nice, but do you join at

the end of the rnd, or not?

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 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! wrote

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!
