A Crocheted Phone Cosy Tutorial

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.

So here we are!crocheted phone cosy tutorial

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.

I used super chunky yarn and a 5.5 mm hook. These are affiliate links.

Also please be aware that being British, I have used British crocheting terms.crocheted phone cosy tutorial
