Crochet Phone or Tablet Stand
It can be really hard to find gifts that you can make for men or for teens and young adults and this time of year between Father’s Day and Graduations that is exactly who we need gifts for. As I was trying to think of a gift idea that would work for either of those groups I thought of making a stand to hold a phone, e-reader, or tablet. I have seen several patterns for these but it seems like they are always either sewn or knitted so I decided to make a crocheted version. It is a really easy pattern, basically just a rectangle that is flattened in opposite directions on each end, kind of like those little sour cream containers. It is stuffed with Poly-Fil, at first I was worried it would need something heavier but that seems to work just fine. A little ridge at the bottom holds the phone or tablet in place so that you can watch a movie, read a book, or maybe follow a pattern, hands free. It holds a phone, e-reader, or a small tablet really well, I think it is a little too small for a big tablet like a full size iPad. You can place the device either portrait or landscape and it will hold it up. I added thin stripes just to make it a little more interesting but you can make it solid colored or add thicker stripes or multicolored stripes, whatever you want.
