This easy crochet phone stand is a free pattern and even works great for books or a tablet. This wedge stand can also be used like a pillow and is very comfy. It comes with a video tutorial as well.
I am on my phone a lot. I’m sure you know what I mean. Social media, messages, and games have us addicted to our phones or tablets. But so many of them also work using their devices – like me. And my hands, wrist, and arm can get very sore when holding my device for too long, especially when reading emails or an ebook.
Well, no more. This Crochet Phone Stand is perfect to let your hands and arms rest. In fact, I use it for my tablet and even an old fashion book. Yes, I love reading books where I can visually see how far I’m in the book. I’m not a fan of ebooks. But I do love them for cooking.

Furthermore, I love creating functional products that would make the perfect gift for someone. Also, it’s very important to me that they not only love it, but also will use it.
So as a crafter and multitasking person, I love having pockets everywhere. I’m sure your mom would love one of these as a gift for her special days – like birthday and Mother’s Day.
Crochet Phone Stand Features
This Crochet Phone Stand has 2 pockets – one on each side – which are perfect for my craft accessories, pens and so much more. In fact, I love putting my scissors, tapestry needle and crochet hooks in them while I have my phone or tablet on the wedge pillow. Now, I can read my pattern and work on it too – with my handy notions easily available.
The Crochet Phone Stand was designed to be the perfect soft wedge pillow that is small enough for storage, but large enough to use for phones, tablets and books. I wouldn’t even be mad if you used it as an actual pillow to sleep on. haha!
The phone wedge pillow was made using Lion Brands’ Feels Like Butta yarn that I found to be easy to work with and it is oh so soft to touch and use.
Furthermore, I only used single crochet in this project which makes it perfect for beginners and to stuff it with polyfill like an amigurumi.

Written Instructions for Crochet Phone Stand
Use a stitch marker when beginning the round portions of the pattern as it makes easier to keep track of the continuous rounds you crocheted.
Make sure you crochet tightly as you’ll stuff it later and don’t want stuffing to show or come through the gaps.
R1: Ch 41 and starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, crochet 1 sc in each ch, turn (40 sts)
R2-14: 1 sc in each st, turn
R15: fold the long rectangle in half and crochet this row through both the bottom of R1 and R14: 1 sc in each st, turn
R16-19: 1 sc in each st, turn
You are now starting to crochet in continues rounds.
R1: 1 sc in the FLO in each st, turn and crochet 1 sc in loop (was the back loop) each of the stitches you just ignored (80 sts)
R2-43: 1 sc in each st
Stuffing the Crochet Phone Stand
Now, you will need to stuff the front part where the phone will rest against so not to slip away.
So, start with crocheting one side closed first by doing the following: [re-attach your yarn, 7 sc dec around the opening, then use a tapestry needle to close the hole completely. Fasten off and weave in your ends.]
Now, stuff it and repeat […] on the other side of the long tube.
Finally, you will stuff the big wedge part of the pillow and sew it closed perpendicular to the tube part of the crochet phone stand, using the mattress stitch to prevent any seams from being shown.
Pockets for the Crochet Phone Stand
In order to crochet 2 pockets, do the following twice:
R1: Ch 15 and starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, crochet 1 sc in each ch, turn (14 sts)
R2-14: 1 sc in each st, turn
Fasten off and cut a long piece of yarn (about a foot long) such that you can use it to sew it onto the Crochet Phone Stand Pillow Wedge. Now sew each square onto the side – towards the back – of the pillow wedge using the wip stitch, leaving the top part open such that they turn into pockets.
