Our crochet phone pouch features a fun loopy texture to protect your cell phone during the holiday season!
It’s hard to find a cell phone cover when you already have a silicone jacket protecting it, like I do. I wanted something to carry it in, and the only way to do that is to make it yourself!
And the best part? Our pattern is easy to adapt to whatever size cell phone you own!
If you’d like to gift this pattern to a crocheter on your Christmas list, the ePatterns available in our Ribblr shop are on sale until the holidays! If you don’t already know, all the money we earn from pattern sales go directly to our Alzheimers’ Crochet for a Cure charity fund drive each year. It was started over a year ago in memory of our mothers :).
Ribblr patterns are exclusively online and have awesome features not available anywhere else. Here’s a quick video introduction and rundown of Ribblr ePattern features if you’re curious.
However, if you want to crochet this phone case right along with me, watch this video:

Supplies for Crochet Phone Pouch
All you need is red worsted weight yarn, velour yarn in a creamy white, and a 5 mm crochet hook.
- ch = chain
- st = stitch
- sc = single crochet
- ls = loop stitch
- sl st = slip stitch
- (..) = repeat the instructions in between brackets the given number of times
How to Make a Crochet Phone Pouch
Crochet with yarn in red colour. Start with a slip knot.
Using a 5.0 hook, chain enough to reach from side to side. The number of chains will depend on your gauge and size of phone. When you measure the chain, don’t stretch it. I did about 14 chains to start, but yours could be different. Be sure to measure against your cell phone before continuing (note that we’ll be adding more stitches in next steps).
Single crochet into each chain st. When you reach the last ch st, sc 3 times into the st. Continue onto other side of chain, working through the single loops, and make your way back on the other side of the chain until you reach the last st. SC 3 times in last st.
However, before you complete the last sc, change colour to white. Be sure to leave the red attached; we’ll be picking that back up later to complete the back of the crochet phone pouch.
Loop Stitch (repeat two rows)
Crochet with white. (sc 13 sts. ch 1, turn.
Loop st for 13 sts. Ch 1 turn).
These two rows form the loop stitch. Here’s how it will start to look after the first two rows of white.
The red will wrap around the bottom and the white loops will form the front of the crochet phone pouch.
Fit as You Go
Repeat previous two rows (between the brackets above) until you reach the top of your own particular cell phone as shown.
Pick up red yarn where you left off. Pull up a loop in red through the white sts and sc 14 sts. Pick up a white loop at side and sl st.
Turn around and work your way back. sc across all red sts, sl st through white loop at side, turn and make your way back again with sc in every st.
By capturing the white yarn on the side, it will start to form the crochet phone pouch!
Continue on in that manner until the red is fully enclosing the crochet phone pouch in the back.
Here’s how the back will look when complete.
The hat is just a continuation of the back.
1. SC 14 sts. Turn.
2. SC 14 sts. Ch 1 turn.
3. SC 13 st, (stopping short of last st), Turn
4. SC 12 st. Ch 1 turn
5. SC 11 st, (stopping short of last st), Turn
6. SC 10 st. Ch 1 turn
7. SC 9 st, (stopping short of last st), Turn
8. SC 8 st. Ch 1 turn
9. SC 7 st, (stopping short of last st), Turn
10. SC 6 st. Ch 1 turn
11. SC 5 st, (stopping short of last st), Turn
12 SC 4 st. Ch 1 turn
13. SC 3 st, (stopping short of last st), Turn
14. SC 2 st. Ch 1 turn
15. SC 1
Now SC 14 sts along the slanted edge to neaten it. Cut yarn and knot. Work in end.
If you like, you can also SC along the other edge too (I didn’t in this instance).
Crochet Phone Pouch Button
Stitch on a button to keep the flap closed. Choose a red button if you want to camouflage it in the yarn.
The trick to keeping buttons from falling off is to leave slack to form a shank. Then wind the yarn around the shank to stiffen it. Bring yarn to back and knot, hiding the tail.
The single crochet is loose enough that you can pop the button through to close the flap/hat. Now, to complete, make a pom pom for the end of the hat.
Make Pom Pom
For one version I use a serving fork to form the pom pom. You’ll see that technique in Monday’s project!
Watch the video to see how I crochet a pom pom for this crochet phone pouch.
A crochet pom pom is much more practical for this particular yarn because it tends to shed when cut!
Tie the pom pom onto the tip of the hat. On the smaller version, I fastened it on in such a way that it hides the button.
Just slip your phone in and you’re done!
