This design was inspired by Theresa Choo’s cell phone case designs that she shared with us on the Crochet Hooks You Facebook Page the other day. Thank you for being an inspiration, Theresa!
I’ve made this design a simple one and have added a color change so there is a little highlight to this Crochet Cell Phone Case Pattern. You can dress these up with funky buttons too. You’ll be able to make a cell phone case in any size for your cell phone using my pattern below.
Use my pattern as a guide to even coming up with your own Crochet Cell Phone Case design!

Crochet Cell Phone Case Video Tutorial
Starting at Top of Phone Case
Note: To get the right circumference (measurement of right around the phone) make a foundation chain long enough to fit around your phone and make it an even amount of chain stitches. If you have a Samsung phone like mine then:
Using Blush Rose Yarn (or main color) ch 22, join with a sl st into 1st ch st to form a ring.
Rnd 1: ch 1, 1 sc into same sp as join, 1 sc into each ch st around to the end, join with a sl st into 1st sc. (22 sts)
Rnd 2: ch 1, 1 sc into same sp as join, 1 sc into each st around to the end, join with a sl st into 1st sc.
Rnds 3 – 7: Rep Rnd 2.
Change to Granite Yarn (or contrast color).
Rnd 8: ch 3, (working in BLs only) 1 dc into each st around to the end, join with a sl st into top of ch-3.
Change to Blush Rose Yarn (or main color).
Rnd 9: ch 1, (working in BLs only) 1 sc into same sp as join, 1 sc into each st around to the end, join with a sl st into 1st sc.
Rnd 10: ch 1, 1 sc into same sp as join, 1 sc into each st around to the end, join with a sl st into 1st sc.
Rnds 11 – 21: Rep Rnd 10.
At this point slip your case over your phone to check that you have enough length. If you find that your case is too long, undo a round or two. If it’s too short, repeat rnd 10 as many times as you need to.
Securing Bottom Together
Holding your phone case upside down with the seam on the right side, weave yarn tail into yarn needle and whip stitch through the bottom stitches to secure the bottom; you should only need to make 11 whip stitches and then finish off.
Weave in the yarn tail with a yarn needle in towards the inside of the case.
Weave in all other yarn tails with a yarn needle into the inside of the case.
Sew the button onto the front of the case; wherever you want it.
With Granite Yarn (or contrast color) and yarn needle, weave in and out of top edge stitches and leaving a loop for the button loop.
Tie a bow with yarn tails onto the side of the case. Or weave the yarn tails into the inside of the case.
