Sea Shell Smartphone Case Crochet Pattern

If we cannot go to vocations, we can bring vocations home! Have a look at my sea shell smartphone case inspired by my memories of waves and shells that are laying around on sand every morning… Oh, I miss being on a coast so much! Well, back to the case: I have also made a small hole for the phone on button and a small “window” for checking the time (that was a request of my dear husband who hates arm watches 🙂

Pattern:

Note:

  1. The case was made for a smartphone that measures 150 mm x 76 mm x 8.6 mm.
  2. We crochet around, from the bottom to the top, every Round we join with sl st and every Round (except for the Round 1) starts with 1 ch which are not counted as a st!
  3. We make a small hole for a button to be able to switch on the phone in the case and a bigger window for seeing the watch

Blue yarn: 17 ch
Round 1: 3 sc in the second from the hook st, sc in next 12 st, 3 sc in the next st, sc in next 12 st (28)
Round 2: dc in all st (30)
Round 3, beige yarn: (sc, skip 2 st, shell in next st, skip 2 st) X 5 (30)
Round 4, brown yarn: sc in all st (30)
Round 5, blue yarn: 2 ch, 2 dc in the same st, (shell in the st between two next shells of the previous round, sc in the central dc of the next shell of the previous round) X 4, 3 dc in the first st of the round, join with sl st (30)

Round 6, brown yarn: sc in all st, Note: in the sc of  the previous round insert the hook in the st of the round before. This way the bround yarn will cover the sapce between the shells (30)

Round 7, beige yarn: sc in the same st (shell in the st between two next shells of the previous round, sc in the central dc of the next shell of the previous round) X 5, join the round with sl st (30)

Round 8, brown yarn: sc in all st, Note: in the sc of  the previous round insert the hook in the st of the round before. This way the bround yarn will cover the sapce between the shells (30)

Rounds 9-16: repeat Rounds 5-8 after each other (30)

Note: if you do not need spaces for the on button and for the watch, keep crocheting until the wished size is reached. Otherwise follow further instructions:

Round 17, blue yarn: 2 ch, 2 dc in the same st, (shell in the st between two next shells of the previous round, sc in the central dc of the next shell of the previous round) X 4, 3 dc in the last st, change to brown yarn, 1 ch, turn (30) – here will be a space for the phone on button.

Round 18: crochet in the other direction: repeat the Round 6, do not join the Round. Change to beige yarn, 2 ch, turn (30)

Round 19, (shell in the st between two next shells of the previous round, sc in the central dc of the next shell of the previous round) X 5, join the round with sl st (30)

Round 20: repeat Round 6 (30)

Fasten off.

Round 21, blue: Insert the hook in 11th st of the round (space between 2nd and 3rd shells) and crochet 4 more shells and following sc’s, change to brown yarn, 1 ch, turn (20)

Now we continue crocheting only on this part of the case

Round 22, brown: sc in all st, Note: in the sc of  the previous round insert the hook in the st of the round before. This way the brown yarn will cover the sapce between the shells, change to the next colour, 2 ch, turn (20)

Round 23, beige: ch sc in the same st, (shell in the st between two next shells of the previous round, sc in the central dc of the next shell of the previous round) X 3, 3 dc in the last st of the round, change to brown yarn, 1 ch, turn (20)

Round 24: sc in all st, Note: in the sc of  the previous round insert the hook in the st of the round before. This way the brown yarn will cover the sapce between the shells, change to the next colour, 10 ch, sl st to the first st of this round (30)

Round 25, beige yarn: repeat Round 5 (30)

Fasten off, cut the yarn and weave in all ends.

 

Crochet around the inside part of the window with the blue yarn using hdc. Fasten off, cut the yarn and weave in all ends.
