As a crocheter, I enjoy making gifts for others. But I always seem to be short on time so I’m usually on the hunt for a quick gift. I also like to make sure that the gift I make someone is something practical that they can use.
Enter the crochet phone pouch! This is something that is easy enough for beginners but is practical for just about anybody. 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…

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” means to make 5 stitches with color B.
Instructions for the Crochet Phone Pouch
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.
Written instructions are given for the color changes only. You will make 1 sc in each st all the way around for each row unless otherwise instructed.
I did not fasten off a color until I was completely finished with it, including color A. I simply picked it up from the row(s) below when I needed it again. This created very small lines on the inside of my work, which I don’t mind since no one will see the inside of the bag and the lines do not get in the way of my cell phone.
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.
Mark the end of this round with a stitch marker (and every round throughout)

Row 33: (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.
Once you’re back to where you started, make on sl st to the left of where you started the ch and fasten off. Weave in all ends.
How to read the color graph:
Each square on the graph represents one single crochet.
All rounds are worked in the round without joining. The graph should be read from right to left for every round.
Color Block Instructions:
Work the number of stitches in each block in the color shown. White = color A, Gray = color B, Blue = color C, Orange = color D
That’s it! Your geometric crochet mat is all finished! What colors did you end up using? I’d love to see your work 🙂
