~ hold the phone! ~

I was browsing around Pinterest a few days ago, and came across a cell phone charging pouch that was made out of an empty lotion bottle.  I thought that was a pretty cool idea, so I set about to crochet one for my phone.  It was quick and easy and took no time at all.



Materials:
- 1 1/4 oz. 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
- K hook
- one plastic child's bracelet

Size:  5 3/4" x 3 3/4" not including the bracelet

Notes:
- I crochet tight, so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- pattern is worked with 2 strands of yarn throughout

Directions:
Row 1:  Sc around bracelet 9 times.  Ch 1, turn.  (9 sc)

Here's a video I found on Youtube that shows how to crochet around a plastic ring.

Row 2 - 4:  Sc in each sc across.  Ch 1, turn.

Row 5:  Sc in each sc across.  Ch 15, turn piece and sl st in 1st sc.


Rnd 6:  Ch 1, sc in same sc as joining, sc in next 8 sc, sc in each of next 15 chs.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.

Rnds 7 - 18:  Ch 1, sc in same sc as joining, sc in each sc around.  Join as before.  At end of Rnd 18, end off.

Flatten bottom, match stitches evenly and whipstitch the back loops of the front and the front loops of the back together.

Decorate as you please.

  4. I am very new to crochet. Can you explain how to start stitching around an object such as the bracelet in this project? The rest of it I think I can handle! :)
