Crafty Sassy: Top 10 Free Crochet Phone Case Patterns

Hey Dearies! I figured I would should you fun new ways to decorate your phone or store your phone in! Since having a smartphone is something that we all have, I figured I would find some patterns to have some fun with it!

Note: None of these patterns are my, all rights go to the original creators. I will leave a link to the pattern as well.

Let’s check out some of the cute cases that you could decorate your phone with!


1.Blue Agrave Phone Pouch

I really love the colors for this case and the design, it looks like shells. Not to mention, it is also like a purse or hang bag, but instead it only holds the phone. The best part about this type of pattern, you can always add a small pouch behind it to give it extra room.

2.Big Bow Cell Phone Case

I think this pattern is super cute, it also in closes your phone completely, so there is no risk of it falling out. It doesn’t replace an actual case, but it gives your phone more style. Also, I love the aqua color and the fact that these types of patterns are open to trying out different color combos.

3.Mixin It Up With DaPerfectMix Cell Phone Case

This is a more simple phone case, that you may have to adjust because this was meant for a smaller phone. This would be perfect for my old BlackBerry, that I used to have, but his is opened for newer colors, as well. I suggest using a button, but you can try out the Velcro.

4.Easy Cell Phone Case

Naztazia is one of my favorite crochet tutorial channels to look up. Not only are her patterns simply amazing, but the colors she chooses are amazing as well. She is also always has her free pattern and a video to show you how to make it. I highly recommend checking her channel out!

5.Mobile Phone Cozy

A simple yet easy phone case to make, but there is a different style on the top part, which I love! I also like the chain loop that you can make for it, to keep the phone in place. Plus the color combos you could do for this pattern is endless!

6.Owl Cell Phone Cozy

I really like how much detail this creator put into this design, although, it might not fit the phone we have today, it’s possible to adjust it to fit whatever phone size. Not to mention, I love how the owl’s nose is the button that not only holds the phone in place, but it’s a clever idea to use that type of button.

7.Stripped Mobile Phone Cozy

This is another standard phone case, but with a twist and I just love the pinkish color they used for the phone case. Not to mention, the button is super cute. I love the stripe in the middle of both of the cases.

8.Secret Pearl Phone Cozy

This design has lots of different colors that work really well together, not to mention I really like the middle design they chose as well! This also tests your skills by using a smaller hook and finer yarn, which is always fun to try out!

9.Summertime Fishy Phone Case

When I saw this one, it literally blew my mind! look at all the work that was put in to this case! not to mention, there is a hook at the end to connect it to your purse or backpack. I love how beautiful the colors are and the mix color that they used for the body of the fish!

10.Toaster Pastry Mini Cell Phone Cozy

I’m a big pop tart fan and when I saw that, I am adding this on my list of stuff to make for myself for sure! Can you imagine if you had a purse that was a toaster? Now that would be an amazing idea! Anyway, I also loved how they gave one on them a little face and added the extra sprinkles as well!

Crafty Sassy: Crochet C2C Phone Case (Easy)

Hey Dearies! I’ve got another free pattern for you guys and I can’t wait to show it to you all! So, as you all know, if you follow me on Instagram, I showed you one of my pieces that was a C2C (Otherwise called a Corner 2 Corner), that I sadly rushed and didn’t pay attention to the details and ended up taking it apart.

Now, I am currently been practicing with the C2C stitch and I figured this pattern would be an awesome idea, especially if you want to try and make this particular stitch. This phone case is a basic ‘sleeve’ case.

For this case, I ended up pulling out an unused skein of yarn that has been sitting in my closet of yarn, that I got for Christmas. I also know a LOT of people and family members who just LOVE camo stuff and I figured, why not use it for this!

Let’s talk about what you will need:

  • Medium Yarn
    • I am using the Red Heart Super Saver in Camo.
    • You can use whatever colors you wish, but using a mixed colored yarn makes it more fun!
  • 5.0 mm hook
  • Sewing needle

Let’s Begin!

Making the Base

First thing is first, grab your yarn and make a slip knot onto your hook!

Row 1: Chain 5. Double crochet into the 3rd chain from the hook. Double crochet into the next 2 chain stitches.

Row 2: Repeat row 1. *Slip Stitch into the opening gap of the last square you made, in the chain 3 space. Chain 2. Make 3 double crochets in the same gap that you made your slip stitch in. * Repeat * one more. Turn your work.

Repeat Row 1 and Row 2 until you reach your desired height. Mine has 12 squares for my height, I wanted to make it a little bit bigger so it wasn’t so snugged tight. 

When you reach the desired height, turn your work and slip stitch into the next 3 stitches. After that, Chain 2 and make your 3 double crochets. You do this same thing for your width as well. (I did about 13, making sure it wrapped around my phone, but adding an extra row, making it 14 just so it wasn’t as snug.

I know this can sound confusing, but if you need to watch someone do this, I will be leaving a link from Heart Hook Home, that shows you what you need to do. If you are like me, you want to see what you need to do, but once you learn to do it, you’ll catch on pretty quick!

This video was SO helpful when I was looking for a good C2C teaching video. You see, when you do a normal C2C, they have you chain 6 instead of 5, making the project have more of a gap between squares.

Anyway, how long you want to make your width, is totally up to you. I based it on how long it needed to be to wrap around my phone, but I added another row so that it wouldn’t be so tight.

Here is what it will look like:

As you can see, my length is about 12 squares going up and my width is about 14 squares going across. 

Border/Sewing Together (Optional)

Now, for the next part, you can do of 2 ways.

  1. Single crochet around the entire base. 
    1. I went with the first one because it does make it easier to add the buttonhole to the case itself. It also makes it look nice and neat.
    2. When you single crochet around, make sure to make 3 single crochets in all of the corners. You’ll see why when we come to the next step!
  2. Fold it and sew it together. 
    1. You can do the second way, but if you are looking for an easier, and simple way to sew them together, step one is the way to go! If you are set on step 2, just skip down to the buttonhole step.

Once you have finished with step 1, grab your sewing needle, sew in any loose ends before we begin. Get enough yarn, that you will think will be enough, and thread your needle.

Note: I usually grab more than necessary, but the extra yarn that is leftover, we are going to use for the buttonhole or you can use it for any scrap projects in the future! NEVER THROW YOUR SCRAPS!

Once your needle is threaded, line the two ends together and tie a know. This will make it so that our sewing is a little thicker. Then start sewing! I went back an forth, going through both of the stitches from the single crochet.

Sew ONLY 3 of the sides, one of the short sides will be the opening for the case itself. Cut any extra yarn and weave in any loose piece of yarn. Any extra yarn we will be using for our next step!

Here is what mine looked like, once I sewed around it all!

Buttonhole and Button

By the opening at the top, find where you want to place your buttonhole.

Slip knot the extra yarn onto your hook and insert it onto the top. Single crochet in that same spot.

Chain 20.

Note: You can chain more or less, depending on where you want your button to be, just remember, you need to make sure that it will reach the button. You can always sew the button to where you want it to be and then create the buttonhole. 

Single crochet into the next stitch/and or place.

Fasten off and weave the ends. Add your button and you are done!

This is what mine turned out to be!

There you have it! I think these would be perfect gifts for stocking stuffers for the teens or adults. I won’t be surprised if you can fit a PSP or DS in these no problem!
