If you like the idea of making a new crochet phone case for every season then be sure to swap out for this adorable crochet squirrel pattern in the fall! This pattern is a free download on Ravelry by designer Akinna Stisu. The squirrel is actually a motif that is attached to the cozy after the case itself is complete so you could also use this pattern to make a simpler pouch without any motif.

We use cozies like this for cuteness but they serve the function of protecting phones when we drop them or toss them into backpacks and bags; this one is extra secure because most cell phone cozies open at the top but this one has a unique center... opening that keeps the phone tucked in even more securely.
