This is totally a non-lacy crochet project, and I wasn’t sure whether I should post it on my blog. It doesn’t really fit in with all my romantic doilies and soft baby blankets. But the truth is I really wanted to show off my new iPhone case.
I made it with leftover Vanna’s Glamour by Lion Brand yarn and size D (3.25mm) hook.
As I was crocheting it, I thought of making a flap with a button, but then I thought by the time I manage to unbutton it, I will probably miss the call. So I kept it as a simple small bag. I also wanted to decorate it with a small flower, but I changed my mind about that as well. I must say I like its simple look. The yarn has a metallic strand, which adds a bit of sparkle to the case. Good enough for me!
I have a 3G iPhone (yes, when it comes to the latest technology gadgets, I linger behind), but I think this case would fit the later models as well.
Here is my super easy pattern:
Round 1: Ch 13, dc in 4th ch from hook (3 skipped ch count as 1st dc), dc in each ch across, 2 dc in last ch. Continue along the other side of the starting chain, dc in each ch across. Join the round with sl st to 1st dc. (25 dc).
Round 2: ch 3, dc in back loop only of each dc around. Join the round with sl st to 1st dc. (25 dc).
Repeat Round 2 additional nine times; that will give you 11 rounds in total.
