Cell Phone Holder
Here is a little case I made for my cell phone. It was pretty easy to do.
Just make a chain about as wide as the bottom of the phone, plus one chain for turning. Single crochet in the second chain then across to second to last chain. Make 3 single crochets in the last chain.
Now, instead of going back the other way, single crochet around the back of the chain. When you get to the other end, make 3 singles.
Just keeping going around and around (just a single crochet, don't do 3 more at each end now) until you have a 'pocket' that covers your phone.
To make the flap, simply crochet back and forth on one side. You could make a straight flap. I reduced on either side until I had about 4 stitches left. Then I simply made a chain from one corner to the other for a button loop.
Finally, sew on a cute button.
I chose a light fabric (it's actually baby weight yarn) to make my phone easier to find in my pocket book!
