Another free pattern for today! Two-way Crocheted Cellphone Pouch Yay!
I have a 4 year old Samsung Player 4.0 which is still in a very good condition and working really well but I rarely use nowadays, since my hubby bought me a tablet. This player is my very first “touch” interface gadget that I have that is why it has a sentimental value to me. Yesterday, I saw my son got a hold of it and playing with it. But you know, little one’s a little destructive too. He is pulling on it and make it bend. I realized I haven’t taken good care of it, after all the time it pleases me and prove his worth for me. (Seriously? he he). Well, I feel the need to make it up to him (the player) and so I come up with this two-way crocheted cellphone pouch. Yes cellphone, though this player is not, the size and use could it be for a cellphone, or even tablet and other gadgets.
This pattern is a free and adjustable pattern. You can customize it on your desired length, width and all. But today, I will share to you what I’ve finished which is my player pouch. Size of the finished pouch is around 5.5 x 3 inches. Two-way because it can be use as a cellphone or player pouch with or without the drawstring. Or a coin and bill purse with the drawstring.
Here is the final pouch that I made.
Things we will need to make this Two-way Cellphone Pouch:
- A dark purple 3-ply acrylic yarns for the pouch body.
- A 4 mm crochet hook
- A tapestry needle for sewing the drawstring and weaving the ends
- Extra yarn in color that you like for the drawstring (I used the same color yarn in this project)
- 2 beads – preferably with a hole that would fit your yarn in. This will be the bling to your drawstring.
This pattern is crocheting in the rounds, so mark your stitches on the start of every round.
Crochet terms used:
- CH – chain
- HDC – Half Double Crochet
- SC – Single Crochet
- ST – Stitch/es
- SL ST – Slip stitch
- TR – Treble Crochet
PATTERN for the Two-way Cellphone Pouch:
Working in rounds, so be sure to mark your first stitch on each round.
Do a sliip knot and start making chains to the length of the cellphone pouch you are going to use it for.
- Round 1 – SC to the 2nd CH from the hook until the 1st CH.
- Round 2 – SC again on each CH working on the other side of the chains.
- Round (3-7) – HDC on each ST around
- Round 8 – SC on each ST around.
- Repeat Round 3-8 until you reach desired length of the pouch, leaving the last round repetition for the next stitches (That would be 5 rows of HDC and 1 ROW of SC) – this pattern will give you a nice texture of the finished product. NOTE: You can also do SL ST at the end of each Round and make CH 1 before proceeding to the next round.
- Work on the 1st ST of the new round, use *SC, DC,SC* on the first stitch, leave the next ST and then repeat * Don’t forget to leave a ST after making the * STs.
- Fasten off and weave all the yarn ends.
For the drawstring (optional)
You can use double or string strands of yarn to your liking or if the beads you are going to insert it to could fit in. I use 2 strands on mind and it still fits on my majorica 8mm pearl.
Using your tapestry needle, sew the strand/s of yarn in and out the spaces of the row just below the last round you make. you can place it on the front but I prefer it on the sides. The pearl/bead could be attached after sewing the strands of yarn. Tie a knot or two at the end of the string to keep the pearl/bead in place.
