Learn to crochet a fancy and stylish cell phone pouch using the Turkish Star Stitch and this free crochet pattern.
This morning I woke up and realized that when I charge my cell phone it is always on the ground. Having kids and pets at home, that may not be the smartest idea.
So I decided to create a cell phone pouch that protects my phone from dirt and possible scratches. It also has another purpose. It can be hung up over a charging plug when connected to an outlet while charging your phone. AWESOME!
It has another “hole” on the bottom of the pouch for your headphone jack to be plugged in while still having the pouch on your phone. WHAAAAAT? This means you can even hang this pouch onto your pants or a belt while hiking and still listen to your music or take phone calls!
So, now that I explained to you how awesome and multi-functional this pouch is, let me tell you this: It is super easy and fast to make! I made mine under an hour! And it basically only uses 1 stitch which is the single crochet!
Though the Turkish Star Stitch might not look like it, yes, it is 2 single crochet for every stitch just placed in a different location as you normally would. But it is easy! Just try it. And it looks very elegant!
You can get the crochet pattern for the Cell Phone Pouch on Ravelry, LoveCrafts, or my new membership The Crochet Club. The Crochet Club has so much more to offer than just PDF patterns! You get tutorials, references and the complete VIP treatment as well.
