This is a free crochet pattern for Diamond Trellis Cellphone Pouch.
It's been a while now since I crocheted a cellphone pouch, since the demand slacked off because of the variations in screen sizes. Lately, I have noticed that the current trend has been towards a larger size phone. This inspired me to create this pouch specifically tailored for the larger phones available nowadays.
Ever since I started teaching our community how to crochet, this is one of the patterns I created that I teach to advance students. This pouch is simple, yet looks sophisticated and intricate yet all you need to know is how to crochet sc, dc and treble. Goal of this pattern is to learn a new stitch which is Diamond Trellis St.
