For this Project you will need:

HOOK: 5.5mm hook or I hook , 3.5mm hook or size E hook to make the button

YARN: Worsted weight yarn 10 ply UK, 4ply US.

If you made the ruffle bag and this is to match, use same 3 colors the same way here as you did the bag. You will also need a tapestry needle to sew on button. Also you will need a stitch marker of some kind.

NOTE: The color of this cell phone holder is a bit different, cause I used the darker color for the case and lower ruffle, only because I was running low on medium brown. It’s still preferred that you use medium color to make the case. Like you did your purse, if you made the purse that is. If your just making the cellphone holder, make it however you like.

Abbreviations are:
ch = Chain
sl st = Slip Stitch
st = stitch
sc = Single Crochet

To make the slip stitches easier to work in, it helps if you fold the holder, it will make the slip stitches pop up as show in picture below.

NOTE: If your making a this holder to be attached to a bag, I suggest you wait until after you have the lining to attach it. The instructions below are only if you plan on attaching it to a crocheted bag.

Once your ready, sl st to attach your yarn to the corner of the holder. Ch 30 with your 3.5 mm / E hook and using the same color you made the cell phone holder with, and without tightening your last loop, cut a long tail to use for attaching to bag.
