Phone Case Free Pattern!

Naturally, when I had to buy a new phone this week, I needed to make some sort of cute crochet accessory to put it in! I decided to design a 'phone case', but beware, this case can hold much more than just your phone! What will you put in yours?

Droid Phone Case Pattern
Hook Size: H
Using any Worsted Weight Yarn. I used Lily Sugar 'n Cream cotton.

Special Terms
Ch - Chain
DC - Double Crochet

Ch 20. Join to first ch with a slip stitch. Careful not to twist the chain.

Row 1: Ch 3, DC in next ch and each ch around. Join to beginning with a slip stitch.
Row 2: Ch 3, DC in each dc around. Join to first DC with a slip stitch.
Repeat row 2 until you reach the desired height of your phone case/pouch.
Finishing Row: Slip stitch 10, Chain 8 (for the button loop, you may need to chain more or less depending on your buttons size), slip stitch in same space. Slip stitch remaining 10 stitches.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Now just attach a cute little button on the front center and you're done!

These work up so fast! And they make perfect gifts for friends. They stretch and you can make it in a variety of sizes to fit everyone's phones! I know I plan on making a ton more for family and friends. Enjoy!


  1. Man, I wish I could crochet anywhere as well as you can! This is such a cute idea, and so simple too! What a perfect replacement for your iphone case, wrist let, and a great place to stash other random items! I have something similar that I made from scraps of cloth and sewed together, and I bring it everywhere (nothing beats convenience)!

    1. Thank you! I know what you mean about convenience. Having a 9 month old means I need every thing easily accessible and in one place. I love the idea of making it into a wristlet as well. I'll have to try that!

  2. I'm a little confused at the beginning part.. if u ch 20 then join with the sl st, then dc the rest (I get all that), but wouldn't there still be a hole in the bottom? Maybe I'm just missing something, but I'm still a beginner so maybe there's a trick to it that I don't know. If you have time, can u help me with this? Thank you so much. This cell phone case is so cute and I would love to make it.

    1. Hi Lizzy! You just made me realize that I forgot the most important part of the pattern!
      When you finish the case, you sew the bottom together using a whip stitch and a yarn needle. I'll edit that into the pattern right away.
      Thanks and happy crocheting! I'd love to see a pic when you're done!

    2. OK, it makes sense now. I was just gonna do slip stitches or something similar on the bottom anyways. Thank you!! :)
