A long overdue post.
Since I'm new to the crocheting thing again, I have to take baby steps and start on small project first before plunging into bigger responsibilities. The easiest of them all is a cellphone pouch. (Though in the kit that I had said it's a bookmark)
This is also considered my first design and I haven't seen anyone posted something like this and it's somehow an ego booster, haha! Plus you can't really find something like this because not anyone has a phone similar to mine and I designed it specifically for my phone and my own needs. so there.
I have used different kinds of cellphone pouches but they seem to match my phone needs. Mostly are too tight with no locks so my phone slips out and fly from somewhere else. With this one there's enough space for my phone to breath, Sam (my phone's name) is claustrophobic so this would suit her well and the handle serves as a lock for the purse so Sam won't go anywhere else. Plus I can wear the wristlet in the public, shop and there's no way someone can snatch my phone from me even with their tricky fingers!
+ + +This project used Monaco cotton thread size 8 shade B62 for that sack look and steel hook size 9 by Imia. Sorry by I cannot explain the gauge specifics because I am really not used to that. This pattern also work in rounds so don't join unless stated and mark the beginning of each row.
