Last time I posted, I wrote about crocheting cables. You can read about that here!
I was so happy that I’d figured out how to crochet cables I had to make something!
Having the attention span of a gnat, it needed to be something small and quick. So I made a phone cosy. I wasn’t sure whether a phone cosy was a real thing, but I checked with Mr Google and he said it was.
The phone cosy has a cable on one side, worked over 4 stitches. To make the cable, you will be crocheting double trebles for the part where it crosses over, on the wrong side. On the right side, you will be crocheting trebles round the post of the stitch. The rest of the phone cosy is worked in trebles.
The dimensions of the cosy fit my phone which is a Moto G 3rd generation. You might need to adapt the pattern for your own phone. Although as crochet is stretchy, it shouldn’t be a problem unless your phone is either ridiculously huge or unbelievably tiny.
How to Make a Crocheted Phone Cosy
1. Make 13 ch.
3. 3 ch, then 1 tr into 2nd stitch from hook. To start the cable, miss 2 stitches, then 1 dtr (US tr) into each of the next 2 stitches. Go back to the stitches you missed and, keeping your hook at the front of your work, dtr into the first stitch you missed, going in through the back of the stitch. Repeat for the other stitch you missed. Miss out the next 2 stitches (you’ve already worked those!), tr into the next stitch, 1 tr into each stitch to the end of the row.
If you would like a more detailed instructions for crocheting cable stitch, you can find a tutorial here.
7. On the edge of the flap section, find the 5th stitch in from the right. Reattach the yarn and crochet 6 chains (you might need more if your button is enormous!). Slip stitch the end of the chains to the 5th stitch in from the left.
