Mobile phone socks, cell phone cases, cell phone cases - these are all names to carry your constant companion, the phone, well protected. Sure, there are a variety of ways to protect your smartphone from scratches. But crochet fans do not buy any shell, they make it themselves. And Crochet friends crochet for their smartphone or their phone not just a shell. They vary, in style, in color, in yarn selection. Always nice to match the handbag or outfit.

Step by step to the mobile phone sock - We show you how to crochet a mobile phone sock for your phone yourself. With the simplest stitches, you can quickly create a suitable phone case with our step-by-step instructions. Even beginners will come to our guide to a great sense of achievement.

The crochet work itself consists of one or two parts. Depending on whether the phone case should still be equipped with a small bag. We introduce you to two possibilities. Once the mobile phone bag is crocheted edgewise and the small bag is crocheted at the end.

In the second variant, we crochet the phone case in landscape format and the small bag is sewn on at the end. Both times, this bag is intended for the storage of small utensils. Such as headphones, money or even the credit card. And so that the cell phone is always tangible, we have sewn the mobile phone sock yet a cord. So you always carry the smartphone tangibly and securely around the shoulder or neck.

Material and preparation

The crochet yarn for a mobile phone sock should be a durable yarn. When buying, make sure that it is easy to clean. Because the phone case is a commodity that must be washed more often.

Cotton is very good for this crochet work. Cotton yarn is a durable natural fiber with excellent hygienic properties. In Variant 1 we decided on a cotton yarn from Wolle Roedel - Rico Design.

Variant 2 we worked with a cotton yarn from Fischer - Piazza Uni. It is a classic crochet yarn that comes in many fresh colors.
However, there are excellent yarns from many manufacturers that are well suited for a mobile phone sock. If you are unsure, then get advice in your handicraft shop.

Both mobile phone cases we worked with a crochet hook thickness of 3 mm.

According to our instructions you need for a mobile phone sock:

version 1

  • 60 grams of cotton yarn / 100 meters run length to 50 grams
  • 1 crochet hook - thickness 3 mm
  • Although this is a slightly stronger cotton yarn, we still only with the
  • Needle size 3 crocheted.

Variant 2

  • 50 grams of cotton yarn / 125 grams of run length to 50 grams
  • 1 crochet hook - thickness 3 mm
  • possibly 1-2 buttons or push buttons

You should be able to crochet these stitches:

  • stitches
  • strong stitches
  • half sticks
  • chain stitches

Tip: Before you start crocheting the phone case, do a small stitch test. Once with a smaller crochet hook thickness and once with a larger thickness. Then decide how handy your cell phone pocket should be. Because only the crochet hook strength gives the work a certain strength. We think that should necessarily be given on a mobile phone sock.

Crochet cellphone sock

Our measurements in variant 1 are for a smartphone that has the size 8 x 15 cm. We crocheted with two colors - gray and blue. This is just a suggestion. Of course, you can crochet your phone case with your favorite colors.

The basic pattern consists of half rods. It is crocheted in rows. This means that a back and a back row is created.


Cast on 23 pieces of air. The last 2 air stitches serve as climbing air meshes for the first row.

You can measure this air chain on your smartphone or mobile phone. The chain should be slightly wider than the device. Because by working on with half the sticks, the mesh chain pulls together a bit.

2nd row and all subsequent rows

Work half rods in this and all other rows. To do this, always crochet 2 riser sts.

After 16 centimeters in gray color we changed to the color blue. Crochet another 19 centimeters half stick with blue. If you only work with one color, then crochet a total of 35 centimeters with half rods up. After this total length of 35 centimeters, the decrease begins for the tab. It will always be removed stitches in the back row. That is, the row is not finished crocheting until the end.

Crochet the bag

After the basic cover is crocheted, you can still crochet a bag for small utensils, such as headphones, etc.

To do this, just pick up new stitches as you move the two colors or after 16 inches of length. In other words, you draw a loop through the crochet work with a new work thread and crochet a tight loop. Next stitch, draw a loop again and crochet a tight stitch. In this technique, you pick up as many stitches as you need for the width of your crochet work. In our case, there were 21 fixed stitches. From the second row, or the back row, crochet from these stitches as usual half rods.

We have crocheted this small bag 9 centimeters high with half sticks.


Sew the two main parts, the front and the back of the mobile phone sock together with a thread. We did not use the crochet thread for that, that would have been too much. Crochet the pocket piece with Kettmaschen on the front piece. These warp stitches continue to work on the large front.

As a closure, we have sewn a snap. Of course you can also sew a button. Crochet the bow as in variant 2.

So that the mobile phone is always ready to hand, you can still turn a cord from the two thread colors and sew on.

Crochet mobile pocket

The variant 2 of the mobile phone case we crocheted in landscape format. This case also corresponds to a smartphone size of 8 x 15 centimeters.

Pattern 1:

  • solid mesh

Pattern 2:

  • Crochet 2 half sticks in every 2nd stitch of the preliminary round.
  • 2 half sticks in 1 stitch of the preliminary round
  • Skip 1 stitch
  • 2 half sticks in 1 stitch of the preliminary round
  • Skip 1 stitch

In this order, the entire mobile phone sock is crocheted in rounds. That means there is no back and forth row. They just keep crocheting in the round.


Fold 34 Air Meshes - this chain should be the length of your smartphone.

Round 1 to Row 4:

Crochet 1 crochet stitch in each square stitch. Crochet 2 stitches at the end of the chain stitch in the last square stitch. This second fixed loop is now sitting on the front of the chain of airmesh.

The work is not turned now. They simply crochet on the lower side of the chain of stitches in basic pattern 1. Here, too, crochet 2 sturdy stitches on the second front side into the last aerial stitch. The result is a closed, elongated circle. Crochet 4 rounds with tight stitches.

5th round:

From the 5th round starts the basic pattern 2. That means you crochet 2 half sticks in each second stitch.

6th round and all the following:

The 6th round and all other rounds are worked the same way as the 5th round. However, you always sting the 2 half sticks into the space of the previous stick loops. So these stitches are always crocheted offset.

Working in rounds creates a closed cell phone case. These crochet about 9.5 inches high.

So that the device does not slip out, we have a tab on one half of the cover. Simply crochet with fixed stitches in back and forth rows. The flap can be crocheted as long as you like. Our tab is 6 inches high.

Bag for utensils

Also this mobile phone sock gets its own small bag for various utensils.
Crochet a small rectangle with fixed stitches. Cast on 22 pieces of air and continue crocheting with back and forth stitches. Our bag is 10 inches wide and 8 inches high.

Sew the small rectangle for the utensils on the phone case. To keep the flap closed, we crocheted two buttonholes and sewed on the buttons.

How to crochet the buttonhole:

Depending on the size of the button, crochet a chain of mesh to the flap. We struck 16 air mesh for it. These air meshes are crocheted with strong stitches.

The mobile phone case variant 2 is ready.
