I found very nice the idea of a mobile case inspiring at Instagram app, but I never could find a pattern that I liked so I decided to invent one.
It is easy and it can be used as your imagination takes you.
The final size of this pattern is 12cm high and 7cm width. It fits an iPhone.

  • Fingering yarn: beige, brown, red, yellow, green, blue and black;
  • 1.75mm crochet hook;
  • Fabric glue;
  • 1 button;
  • Needle and thread for sewing.

Abbreviations

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double 
sl st = slip stitch
