Your phone goes everywhere with you. It deserves the protection your knitting can provide it.

This is a knitting pattern for a small purse-like carrying case for your smartphone. The strap, made with an I-cord, can be knit long or short, depending upon how you prefer to carry your phone. The strap can also be knit split, so that it can be looped around a purse strap or belt loop.

The pattern starts at the flap and is knit in a straight piece to the end. Then it is folded over and sewn with an I-cord sandwiched in between. It is edged in single crochet and reverse single crochet, and it is kept closed with one small button.

In the pattern I specify use of a crochet cast-on and increases by knitting or purling into the front and back of the stitch. While I prefer the look of these, the cast-on and stitch increase choices aren’t that critical to the final look of the cozy.

The stitch pattern is given in chart form. A key to the chart is provided, but familiarity with cabling will be very helpful in completing this project.
