Photo: My Crochet Cellphone Pouch

Based on my experience, a basic cellphone pouch is one of the best projects for crochet beginners.

The one in the picture is with what I started my crocheting. So it might not be that perfect also :-)

Stitches:

Sc (single-crochet)

Dc (double-crochet)

Sh (shell edge)

To start, chain 4 and join of with a slip stitch.

Round 1:

Work 12 dcs into the round.

Round 2:

Work 2 dcs into the first stitch space and 1 dc each into the stitch spaces till you reach the seventh stitch space. In the 7th stitch space, work 2 dcs and from next stitch onwards work on dc. Complete the round and join off with a slip stitch.

Round 3:

Work 2 dcs into the first stitch space and 1 dc each into the stitch spaces till you reach the eighth stitch space. In the 8th stitch space, work 2 dcs and from next stitch onwards work on dc. Complete the round and join off with a slip stitch.

Round 4:

Work 2 dcs into the first stitch space and 1 dc each into the stitch spaces till you reach the ninth stitch space. In the 9th stitch space, work 2 dcs and from next stitch onwards work on dc. Complete the round and join off with a slip stitch.

Note: Continue with the increasing stitches till you feel that the base is wide enough to accomodate your cellphone. When it is wide enough stop the increase stitches (2 dcs into same stitch).

From next round onwards, work 1 dc each into the stitch spaces. Now the increasing stitches stop and it starts taking a shape of the length of the phone. When the shape is as long as the phone, start working on the covering flap of the pouch.

Covering Flap:

Work 1 sc each into the stitch spaces. Do this only till the half the round so that it forms a flap. Turn around and work scs and keep working till you have the rows enough for the cover. For my pouch I worked 8 rows.

To add the button hole, you need to work an extra row. (My pouch had 11 scs in a row)

Sc into 4 stitch spaces, chain 3, skip 3 stitch spaces, and sc into the next 4 stitch spaces. The chains and skipping the stitches create the button hole.

For the Shell Edging:

  1. Sc around the length and breadth of the flap.
  2. At the end, turn and slip stitch into the first chain.
  3. Skip 2 stitches, dc 7 times into the next stitch.
  4. Skip 2 stitches, slip stitch into the next stitch.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 till the 3 sides of the flap are done with the shell edging.

For adding the button:

Pick any button, big enough for the button hole. Ensure that it is not smaller than the button hole, otherwise the flap will open off by itself.

Close the flap and mark the position where the button must be attached. Open the flap and from the inside of the pouch sew in the button with a matching thread.

You are done. Go ahead, put your cellphone in the pouch! Pretty, right?
