In the summer I'm moving about the yard and garden and find it's easier if the cordless house phone stays with me. For myself I created a cordless phone holder with a belt loop, but after finding out that my 75 year old mum has fallen twice in her house, I created this pattern so she could hang her cordless phone around her neck - as she doesn't wear pants with belts.

You will need: worsted weight yarn, 5mm crochet hook, 6mm dps, stitch marker, needle

I used an acrylic yarn from my stash so I can't provide you with any yarn details

This is my first written pattern, so forgive me if I don't use the right terms or have omitted something -
cast on 10 stitches, place marker in first stitch
row 1: sc 8, with 3 stitches in the end loop and work the back loops returning to the marker (so you've made a u-turn with your stitches)
row 2:2sc in the marker, and sc until the 11th stitch where you'll make 2 stitch, sc to end/marker
row 3 -23: sc around, 20 stitches total
row 24: sc until 3 stitches from the marker and start your i-cord, continue until cord is 30" or desired length (remember it will stretch a bit when the phone is in the pouch)
cast off leaving a 12" tail for sewing and sew the i-cord (be careful to remove twists before sewing) to the 7th and 8th stitch from the marker

If you choose to make one, I'd love to see your photos too!
(I'll post in Ravelry as well  - I'm "wayoutwear"

What a great idea! I like to walk around the house and tend to do stuff while talking on the phone with an ear-piece. Thing is, I still have to carry the phone around! This would be a great solution (though I would wear it slung over my shoulder so it doesn't topple in my dishwater or something else).

Thanks for sharing!
