I love Minions! I can’t describe how much I do but they’re the coolest thing on earth! I already made my big Minion amigurumi but I wanted something on the go. And what’s perfect for this? A phone case :).
Minion-inspired phone case pattern
- yarn in yellow, blue and black (I used Hayfield Bonus DK)
- 5 mm crochet hook
- 2 sew on wobbly eyes (I prefer sew ones but the ones which you glue on will do the job as well)
- tapestry needle
Gauge: is not important as long as you keep it consistent within the project, I’ll explain how you can fit it to your phone in case yours isn’t an iPhone
sc= single crochet (US term); double crochet (dc, UK term)
hdc = half double crochet (US term); half treble crochet (htr, UK term)
In my patterns UK terms are always given in brackets.
Round 1: Ch 10. Compare this with the width of your phone. When its the same width as your phone you’re on the safe side if not you might have to adjust the length of your chain row. (the finished item has a little bit of “play” but you don’t want to be too far off.
Round 2: sc (dc) in second ch from hook, sc (dc) in each st until end of ch. 3 sc (dc) in last st. Working on the other side of ch, sc (dc) till end. Make 2 sc (dc) in last st, join.
Round 3-8: Ch 1, hdc (htc) in each st around, join.
The blue bit should be now roughly 1/3 of your phone height if not keep on doing rounds until you’ve reached that height.
