Phone Case for LG Cookie (KP500/KP501)

This is a very simple phone case, crocheted in moss stitch.
I made it for the LG Cookie phone, which measures roughly 150 x 55 x 13mm, but it could be quite easily adapted for another phone or MP3 player.

Please note the pattern uses English (UK) crochet terms, which are different to American terms.
Ch = chain
Sl st = slip stitch
DC = double crochet

Approx 50 yards Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn
3mm crochet hook
Stitch marker

Row 1: Ch 29, join into a ring with a sl st.

Row 2: Ch 1, DC into each ch, join with a sl st to beginning ch1.

Row 3: Ch 2 (place marker), DC into 2nd DC from hook, *ch 1, skip next DC, DC into next DC* repeat all the way around, do not join.

The rest of the case is worked in a spiral. Instead of joining each round with a sl st, simply continue working up into the next row.

Row 4 onwards: DC into the ch space below (where marker was placed) *ch 1, skip next DC, DC into next ch1 space* repeat around.

Continue in this way, using the stitch marker to keep track of row ends if you need to. I completed 29 rows.

Finishing: When desired length is reached, finish on a Dc, then sl st around 1 more row. Sew the seam at the bottom. Weave in yarn ends.

This case will stretch easily, so try it on your phone a few times while you make it, to ensure a good fit.

Moss stitch does not create harshly definied rows like double crochet does, so is easily worked in a spiral.
The gaps in the stitch prevent any worries about the phone overheating.

  1. With smartphones costing so much, a durable case is necessary for protection. After all, most smartphones cost over $600 off-contract, so keeping a phone looking as great as possible is going to be a goal for anybody. A durable case goes a long way in accomplishing this. Some of the greatest, most durable cases on the market share a few different features that help to set them apart from the competition and make them more effective. These are the features that make the best iPhone cases, Blackberry phone cases and cell phone cases, in general, different from others on the market.
