Hey there everyone! I want to share with you a Free Crochet Pattern that I just put down on paper. Okay so I typed it up but you know what I mean. After putting together my blog post, Free Crochet Patterns: Cell Phone Cozy, I decided to try and create my own cell phone case pattern. Designing the case was a little harder than I expected. There are many ways to create the case but I tried to go with the easiest way possible (at least for me).
Puff Stitch Cell Phone Case Crochet Pattern
Size: Fits most smartphones. I have an HTC Droid Incredible 2 and it fits over the phone with its case.
Finished Measurements: 3” wide and 6” tall
Yarn: DK weight
Hook size: F – 3.75mm – or hook needed to obtain gauge
Notions: stitch markers, yarn needle & scissors.
Yo yarn over
Sl st Slip stitch
Sc Single crochet
Dc Double crochet
Cluster Puff (yo, insert hook in st and pull up a loop, yo and draw thru 2 loops on hook) 3 times. Yo and draw thru all 4 loops on hook.
This case is worked as a large rectangle piece. To complete the case it is folded in half and the sides are single crocheted close. Turn it inside out and finish with a round of single crochet around the opening.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook. *Ch 1, sk 1, sc in next st. Repeat from * across.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc now and throughout the pattern), turn. Work cluster in next ch-1 sp. *Ch 1, work cluster in next ch-1 sp. Repeat from * across. Dc in last st. (7 clusters)
Row 3: Ch 1, turn. Sc in first dc. Ch 1, *sc in next ch-1 sp between clusters, ch 1. Repeat from * across. Sc in top of beginning ch.
Row 4-29: Repeat rows 2 & 3.
Do not fasten off. Fold rectangle in half with the short sides matching. Sc thru both edges to opening end. Fasten off. Attach yarn to opposite opening edge and sc thru both edges to bottom of case. Fasten off. Turn the case inside out. Attach yarn to opening edge. Ch 1, sc in same st and each st around. Join with sl st to first sc and fasten off.
Sew in all loose ends.
Add your own style to this case by sewing on buttons or crocheting a piece to sew onto the top (like an owl, heart, etc.).
