My elder sister is the most avid fan of my crochet. She usually loves phone cozies and asks me to make a lot for her. Now that she just purchased a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, I'm making another set for her.

This phone cozy is crocheted using the same stitch pattern (crisscrossing sc's) that I used for Man's Bills and Phone Purse that I made for my husband.

They look different though because I worked the stitches in a spiral, which makes one side look different from the other side.

Fitting so snugly on my sister's phone, this phone cozy didn't need any closure.

Lovely, just lovely texture. This is the right side of the phone cozy.

The wrong side isn't so bad either. But I love the other side more.

Measurements:

Length: 5.5 in

Width: 3 in

Honestly, I forgot to measure the gauge and count the number of rounds I made. My sister was so eager to claim her phone cozy. I can't really blame her, this is just soooo gorgeous!

Required Skill:

  • Working on both sides of the chain
  • Working in rounds in a spiral
  • Crisscrossing sc's
  • Blocking (video provided below)


Materials and Tools:

  • Mercerized crochet cotton
  • #7 (1.65mm) Steel hook
  • Stitch marker


Just look at that! Snug fit!

Notes:

The crisscrossing of sc's shortens the foundation chain A LOT. Even if I began with a foundation chain that's longer than the phone, I ended up with a cozy that's short on width.

I solved that shortage with blocking.

Thinking it over now, maybe I should have began with a foundation chain twice as long as the width of the phone. I just realized that crisscrossing the sc's reduces the width of two sc's to almost one.

Make a swatch first before crocheting this pattern. It might be just my way of crocheting (I crochet tight).

Abbreviations:

  • Ch - chain
  • Sc - single crochet
  • Sk - skip
  • Sl st - slip stitch

Written Pattern:

This pattern is what I crocheted. Consider modifying the foundation chain based on my NOTES.

Foundation Chain: Ch 29.

Round 1: Sc on the second ch from hook, 26 sc, 2sc on the remaining ch, (begin work on the other side of the chain) 27 sc, DO NOT TURN. Stitch count: 54 sc

Round 2: Mark the first sc with a stitch marker. (Sk the next sc, sc, sc on the sc just skipped) 28x. DO NOT TURN. Remove stitch marker. Stitch count: 54 sc or 28 pairs of criss-crossed sc's.

Repeat Round 2 till desired length is reached.

Sl st the last round to achieve a finished look for the phone cozy. Break off and weave in ends.

The following chart pattern is NOT an actual representation of the written pattern.

It only serves as an illustration of the written pattern. However, it can also serve as a formula/recipe should you want to modify this pattern into something else.

Blocking:

Since I ended with a cozy that's considerably short on the width, I had no choice but to block. Here's a helpful video on blocking.

      Thank you! I love this color, too. (It makes me think of blueberries.) And the stitch, I think it's a hidden treasure. I can't believe I didn't think of it before. ",)
