Knit by Bit: free phone cozy knitting pattern
This free phone cozy knitting pattern is a perfect warm weather knitting project, and using MillaMia Naturally Soft Aran it’s beautiful as well as functional.
I recently got a new smart phone, and even though it’s not a fancy iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy, I still want to keep it safe when it’s bouncing around in my bag. Like many crafters, I walk around with a huge bag: it contains the usual suspects like a wallet, phone, and keys, as well as at least two books, several WIPs, and a spare set of scissors. That’s a lot going on in one bag, and all those pointy objects can wreak havoc on a phone screen.
With that in mind, I decided to create a cute phone cozy knitting pattern that was easy enough for beginners, but had enough interest for us experienced knitters. This 11 row repeating pattern creates a reversible diagonal stripe texture using only knit and purl stitches. One side shows stripes that slant to the left, and the other shows stripes that slant to the right. You can choose either side to be your outward facing side: that’s the benefit of a reversible fabric!
This phone cozy knitting pattern is worked in one piece, to create a long rectangle. After you bind off, you will be seaming up the sides to create the pocket. Then, you create an i-cord loop to fasten around the button. It’s a simple pattern, and you can easily finish this phone cozy during an evening in front of the television.
You don’t need much for this pattern, just a ball of yarn and some stuff you probably already have laying around in your craft room.
You will need the usual suspects:
One pair of 4mm single pointed needles
Two 4mm double pointed needles (to create the i-cord loop)
And a button.
You will also need:
1 ball of MillaMia Naturally Soft Aran in any shade (pictured is Limited Edition Lemon Twist)
This cozy was so easy to make, I plan on making a few more for family and friends. After all, sharing is caring!
