Team Versions of July Pattern of the Month
RedBerryCrochet took up the challenge to create a cell phone bag based upon cowgirlcrysi's pattern. Since we all tend to have a little different gauge, here is RedBerryCrochet's interpretation of cowgirlcrysi's pattern for her phone:
Size G (4.0 mm) hook, acrylic worsted weight yarn, 7/8" button
Gauge - 4dc = 1"
Finished size 3 5/8" wide (including edging), 3 1/2" tall with a 14 1/2" strap.
Row 1 (RS): ch 13, dc in 4th ch from hook and in each across. (11 dc incl ch 3)
Row 2-14: work even in dc.
Row 15: ch 1, turn, sc in next 5 dc, (sl st, ch 20 for button loop, sl st) in next st, sc in next 5 dc. Fasten off.
Turn so WS is facing and fold Row 1 up to Row 15. Starting at bottom right corner, sc evenly through both thicknesses to top. Ch 60 for strap. Sc evenly again through both thicknesses on other side. Fasten off, weave in ends, sew button to front.
The Colorful Bee (aka Kim) also took up the challenge to create a cell phone holder. Her version is very colorful, just like her shop name. She has an Apple I-Phone, so she changed the pattern to make it fit her phone; she also designed it for the phone to lay on its side.
Kim used worsted weight cotton yarn and a size H hook. Her pouch is 16 double crochets wide and 12 rows long. Instead of sewing her holder closed, she chose to single crochet all the way around with a medium length single crochet strap.
