Free Crochet Phone Case Pattern

This is a free crochet phone case pattern. Learn to crochet a fun and trendy hands-free option for your cell phone!


Crochet Phone Case Pattern

I don’t like carrying big purses – everything always seems to get lost at the bottom and it drives me nuts. Truthfully, I only ever want to carry my phone, debit card and maybe a chapstick and that’s it. But I don’t always want to carry my phone around in my hand…

Enter the crochet phone case! The strap is long enough so that you can wear it crossbody. Now you have a wonderful – and trendy – hands-free option for amusement parks, the beach, the farmer’s market and more!

And if you’re anything like me, then being able to change your phone’s ‘outfit’ is something you like to do often. I get bored with the same design and like to always have options 🙂 More on that below…

Free Phone Case Crochet Pattern

Materials:

  • Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton yarn in 2 colors or your choice (colors I used are below):
    • 1/2 skein Ecru (color A)
    • 1/2 skein Dragonfly (color B)
  • 4.00 mm crochet hook (G6)
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle
  • stitch marker

Skill Level:

  • Intermediate. In this pattern, you will be changing color while crocheting. You will use two colors at once. The maker should already have knowledge of tapestry crochet, basic stitches and terminology to make this cell phone bag.

STITCHES USED AND ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMS):

  • ch = chain
  • st/sts = stitch/stitches
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • yo = back loop only
  • sc = single crochet
  • sc blo = single crochet back loop only
  • A = color A
  • B = color B

GAUGE:

  • 4.5 sc blo x 4 rows = 1 square inch

FINISHED SIZE (approximate):

  • Length: 6”
  • Width: 3.75”

Single Crochet Back Loop Only:

To make a single crochet in the back loop, you will simply insert your hook into the loop that is furthest from you. Normally we crochet under both loops but for sc blo, we will just crochet under the back loop.

How to read this pattern:

To keep the wording to a minimum and not so redundant, I have only stated how many stitches per color you will be making in each row. For example, this is how you will read this excerpt:

“(B) x 5, (A) x 6” means to start with color B, work 4 single crochet back loop only (sc blo) stitches with color B, start the 5th stitch with color B and on the last pull-through before completing the stitch, drop color B, pick up color A and finish the stitch with that. You are now ready to work the next 6 stitches with color A.

Pattern notes:

  • This pattern is written using standard US crochet terms.
  • This cell phone bag will snuggly fit an iPhone 13 or 14 Pro Max with a case on it. I’ve used it for an iPhone 8, which is smaller but this gives extra room for a chapstick or some cash as well!
  • This pattern is worked in the round. You will not join rounds.
  • Use any worsted-weight yarn for this pattern.
  • You can use whatever colors you’d like!
  • You will begin changing color on the 2nd row, so ensure color B is ready! (In my case, it was Dragonfly)
  • Instructions are given for color changes only. You will make one sc for the base round and one single crochet back loop only (sc blo) in each stitch all the way around for every round after that. You will need to use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each row.

Instructions for the Crochet Phone Case

This pattern is worked in the round. This means you will not join rounds with a slip stitch and ch 1 before starting a new round.

Instructions are given for color changes only. The base is made with regular sc stitches. Round 2 and beyond are made using the single crochet back loop only stitches. (sc blo)

Begin row 2 (the first color-changing row) by attaching color B and working over color A until you need to pick it up to use it

Carry the yarn you’re not using. In other words, lay the yarn you’re not currently working with across the stitches and work your crochet stitches over it with your current yarn color.

The stitch count at the end of every round will be 32.

Begin using the color Ecru or whatever you’ve chosen to use as your Color A.

using color B, ch 16.

Base (Round 1):

Make 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc across in each of the next 13 ch. In the last ch, make 3 sc – which will bring you to the other side of the ch. Make one sc in the other side of each ch all the way across. Make 2 sc in the last ch. You should have a total of 32 sc.

Row 22: (A) x 31, make one sl st in the very last stitch. You will now begin making the strap

How to attach the strap:

As you are finishing the last round, make 1 sl st in the last st and begin making a ch to your desired length. (If you are not quite to one of the ends of the bag, you can either sl st until you are or you can fasten off and reattach your yarn to start the strap) Different body heights/types require different lengths so make it the length that works for you.

Once the chain is to your desired length, without twisting it, attach it to the other side of the bag. Ch 1, make a sl st in the st to the left of where you attached the ch, ch 1 again and begin making 1 sl st in each ch all the way back down the strap.

How to read the color graph:

Each square on the graph represents one single crochet back loop only stitch (except for row 1 which is the single crochet base).

All rounds are worked in the round without joining. The graph should be read from right to left for every round.
