Crocheted iPhone Cozy
Make a slip knot and then chain 6 to 8 chain stitches (ch) together. Remember to keep the tension pretty tight. Basically you want to have the chain be the same width of your phone when the chain is stretched firmly. If you want the case to have a snug fit, (ch) 6 but if you want it a little more loose and roomy then (ch) 7 or 8 stitches.
Round 2: Not turning your work, (sc) in the second chain from the end (the same end you’re hook is) and continue this in every stitch back across the entire row. 2 (sc) in the last stitch.
Round 3: With your work still facing you, turn around the corner so that you’re now working into your original chain and still working right to left, 2 (sc) in first stitch then (sc) the rest of the stitches in the row except 2(sc) in the last stitch. Repeat this for as many rows you need until you have you have achieved the correct width to fit the bottom of you phone (probably about 3-5 rows total depending on how snug or roomy you want your cover). Keep your phone handy to test and make sure the fit is good.
Round 4, 5 or 6 onward: 1 (sc) in each stitch for each row until you’re near the top of your phone.
Second last row: Here you can either keep your yarn colour the same or add your second colour. Starting at one side of the case, do one more row of (sc) and then at the end of that row change to 1 (sl st) in each stitch. When you reach the exact middle of your case, (ch) 30 stitches so that you have a long chain and then do 1 (sl st) in the stitch that your chain originated in so that the chain becomes a loop that will go over the button. Then carry on around the rest of the row until you’re back where you started. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends with your darning needle.
Put your phone in the case and pull the chained loop over. Mark where the end of your loop falls, centred on the case, and then stitch your button on in that exact spot.
