SNOWMAN CELL PHONE POUCH
SNOWMAN CELL PHONE POUCH

THIS IS MY OWN ORIGINAL PATTERN

MATERIALS:
Small amount of WW yarn in two colors desired (I used christmas white with the sparkle and christmas blue with the sparkle)
Small scrap of fleece material - about 3 inches x 8 inches, depending on size needed for cell phone and desired length of "scarf."
Pony beads or buttons for face
G hook
Ice pick (for making holes in fleece)
 
Make holes in fleece starting at one end with ice pick, about every 1/4 inch.  HOLES MUST BE EVENLY SPACED AND FIT WIDTH YOU NEED FOR YOUR PHONE. IF YOU HAVE EXTRA FABRIC ON THE ENDS THEY WILL BE TRIMMED LATER, BUT MAKE SURE THIS IS WIDE ENOUGH FOR YOUR PHONE, AS THIS WILL DETERMINE SIZE OF CROCHETED SNOWMAN FACE.  I USED 15 STITCHES FOR WIDTH IN MINE, AND IT'S A LITTLE ROOMY BUT MY PHONE IS VERY SMALL.
 
SNOWMAN FRONT: 
ROW 1:  Single crochet in each hole across.  Chain 1, turn. 
ROWS 2-15:  Repeat row 7.  At end of row 15 fasten off.
ROW 15:  Change to "hat" color.  SC in each stitch across.  Chain 1, turn.
ROWS 16-20:  Repeat row 15.  At end of row 20 fasten off.
 
SNOWMAN BACK:  Repeat as for front side, following the pattern exactly the same, except start on opposite end of the scrap of fleece.
 
Thread yarn through pony beads, buttons, whatever you use for your snowmans face and attach eyes, nose and mouth by running yarn ends through from front to back and knotting 3-4 times.  Cut ends.
 
FINISHING:  With wrong sides together, SC around both sides and bottom to join front and back.  Tie ends of fleece together in a knot to form the snowmans 'scarf."   Trim to desired length.   Using two strands of yarn held together and an H or I hook, attach yarn with slip stitch to one side of pouch at top, chain length desired for handle (I make mine long enough to wear around my neck - about 95 stitches or so).  Attach on other side of pouch with a slip stitch.  Then slip stitch back across chain to the other side for a more finished look to your handle.  Fasten off.
