I don't know about you, but I love pretty and girly stuff. Even if it's simple and to the point, daily-wear-and-tear items, if I can make them cute, I will. So here's my take on a no-nonsense, daily use I-pod or cell phone case.
Worsted weight cotton (color of your choice)
Crochet hook size F
Shirt-size button, color of your choice
Row 1- 1 sc in second ch from hk and in each ch across. (25 sc) Ch 2, turn.
Row 2- 1 hdc in each sc across. (25 hdc) Ch 2, turn.
Rows 3 to 4- 1 hdc in each sc across. (25 hdc) Ch 1, turn.
Row 5- 1 sc in each hdc across.
Rows 6 to 15- Continue repeating 3 hdc rows and 1 sc row. Ch 1, turn corner to work on side of piece.
Rows 16 to 17- Work on the side of piece, work 21 sc across. Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew with.
Working on Wrong Side, thread blunt needle with leftover tail and sew side and bottom of case. Turn case inside out.
Row 1- Join chosen yarn to back of case, skip the first sc row worked on the side of the case. Make 1 sc in each of next 11 hdc. Ch 2, turn. (11 sc)
Rows 2 to 4- 1 hdc in each sc across. (11 hdc) Ch 1, turn.
Row 5- 1 sc in each of first 2 hdc, sc2tog over next 2 hdc, ch 1, skip 2 hdc, 1 sc in next hdc, sc2tog over next 2 hdc, 1 sc in last hdc (buttonhole made). Ch 1, tun.
Row 6- 1 sc in each stitch across. (8 sc) Ch 2, turn.
Row 1- 3 hdc in same spot as ch 2, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc, skip 1 sc, 4 hdc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 4 hdc innext sc, sl st in last sc.
Fasten off, weave in tail.
Thread sewing needle with sewing thread and sew button in place. Fasten off.
Optional- (Some people like their cell phone cases to have handles, to make it easier for them to grab them and put them where they go in tote bags or purses.)
Join yarn to side of case and ch 16. Ch 1, turn.
Row 1- 1 sc in each ch across. (16 sc)
Fasten off, weave in tails.
