If you are after a ‘quick make’, try out this simple mobile phone case pattern.
The case is made in garter (knit) stitch from chunky wool on 6.5mm needles.
Start by casting on 11 stitches.
Then just knit your rows – your fabric will grow pretty fast with chunky wool! For a Blackberry sized mobile phone you are aiming for 50 rows.
After 50 rows your knitted fabric will be around 22.5cm or 9 inches long. Use your mobile to check the fabric is long enough to wrap around it.
Cast off your 11 stitches.
Fold your knitted fabric in half, around the 11cm / 4.5 inch point with your best looking sides together to make a pocket shape for your mobile.
Use a blunt ended yarn needle to darn in your yarn ends and sew up each side of the case using a simple running stitch. Turn the pocket inside out.
Voila – your phone case is ready for your mobile. Add on a few buttons or a knitted flower to make it look pretty!
