This pattern is available for free.

An armband to carry your phone/ipod/mp3 player while exercising. It has a long strap and velcro so you can pull it as tight as you like and if the crochet stretches or you lose weight or someone else wants to borrow it then you can just pull it a bit tighter. It also has an extra pocket for keys or anything else you want to carry.

What you will need:

About 50g of DK weight yarn and a suitable sized hook (I used 4mm)

A small amount of Velcro (you could use a loop and button to close but then it won’t be adjustable)

A yarn needle for sewing the work and a regular needle and thread for sewing on the Velcro

A metal or plastic ring for looping the strap through – I used one from the strap of an old bag – it is square and works fine but having used it a couple of times I think a circular one would be slightly better as the square tends to twist.
