Crochet iPhone Case

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.

Fasten off.

  13. I tried this and while one side stayed straight, the other end of the case got wider and wider. I have a feeling it has something to do with me chaining 3 times when I repeat round 2 but I'm not sure what I'm doing that's different from the instructions. Is there any other reason that the place where I slip stitch keeps getting bigger while the other side stays straight?

    1. Hi, I think you might be adding one extra dc in the beginning of each round. When you start 2nd round (and the following ones) ch 3 in the beginning of the round counts as 1st dc, so the amount of dcs in each round should be the same. I think what you do is you make ch 3, and then you make dc in the same space/stitch where sl st was made, and therefore it keeps getting wider.
      That's the only thing I can think about. It might help if you send me a closeup picture (you can see my e-mail in my profile), and I'll try to figure out what's going on.
