Crochet phone case

Happy Thursday!  Today, I have another fabulous guest post here on View From The Fridge!!  I’m so thrilled to have Allie Bobe from Crafty Allie here sharing an adorable crochet project!!  After you’re done reading this … make sure you stop over and visit her blog.  She has some GREAT projects, and is so talented (seriously, she can do everything crafty … crochet, sew, knit, even cook)!!   I can do ONE of those four.  Yikes!  

I’ll let Allie take it away …

Hi I’m Allie. That’s me to the left (the crazy one), willing to do anything, well almost anything! I obviously, love crafting, hence my blog name “Crafty Allie”.

I’m a fun loving Texan, obsessed with anything to do with crafting, sewing, knitting, crochet, cooking and so much more! Please join me in my adventures of creative insanity!

Thank You so much Katie for having me on today. I am truly honored!

Today, I’d like to show your readers how to make these cute crochet cell phone cases.

These cases are made from cotton yarn. Which makes that nice and tight look, but its also gives more stretch, perfect for slipping on and off.
 
First I started off chaining 29 chains. Yours may be different. Depending on the the width of your phone.
I could have gotten away with a few less chains, but this way I knew for sure it would slip on and off.
Connect the two ends, making sure the chains are not twisted. 
Then connect with a slip knot.
Chain one and single chain into each chain all the way around.
When you get back to the starting point slip stitch and chain one.
Then single chain again all the way around again.
Remember to slips stitch and chain one each time you get to the starting point.
Crochet all the way to the top of the cell phone.
And Here is where my camera starts acting up, 
Sorry, no photos of this part.
Slip stitch at beginning and cut off a 6 inch tail and pull the yarn through the hole making a knot.
 
I used the connecting points as the back of the case. Count 6 chains from the left side (looking from the back with the seam down the center of the back).
 
Start crocheting a single chain 6 chains from the side and single crochet over leaving 6 chains before reaching the other side. Then turn your case while your hook is still in the chain and single crochet in each chain going back. Stop before reaching the last chain, and then turn your work and chain back.
Skip the last chain and turn you work and go back.
This will make it skinnier and skinnier until it comes to a point.
Then chain about 10 chains and make a loop and slip stitch back into the same chain.
Then close the bottom of the case. Start at one side and slip stitch all the way across.
 
Then flip it inside out so the seam is in the inside.

 

To add the flower I pulled the loop all the way down and stuck the needle where the loop meets.
Then with white cotton yarn I began single crochet into the case making a circle.
Go into the first white chain and crochet a single crochet,  then a double crochet and then another double crochet and then a single crochet, all into the first chain of the white circle.



Then skip two chains and repeat the process.

Skip two chains and repeat the step 
making another pedal.
 
After completing 5 pedals then slip 
stitch to the first pedal. 
Chain one, and single crochet into the first stitch, then crochet 3 double crochets and and a single crochet all into the first stitch.
 

 

Skip two stitches and repeat the one single, two doubles and one more single crochet into the chain.
Skip two stitches each time and make a total of 8 pedals. Slip stitch to connect the pedals.
 
Now were ready for the center of the flower.
Chain 3 and then slip stitch to the beginning. 
Being single crocheting in a circular motion around each chain.

 

When you have formed a ball then cut a long tail, 
and slip the tail through and make a knot.
Attach it to the center of the flower
 and waa-la your done.
 
I hope you’ll join me at my blog Crafty Allie.

    These are so cute. Haha I love that she’s hanging out in the tub. I’d totally do that. I do when I get tired of walking around in Home Depot and what not. Thanks for sharing! Those cases are cute!

    Really cute crochet case. Looks simple to make, too – a type of project you can finish quickly and feel like you accomplished something. Thanks for the info on how to make it.
