    cool! I’ve searched for an iPhone cover for days. And found a couple that would “work” but I wasn’t happy enough with them. This is inspired….. a slot at the bottom so I can plug it in, thus leaving the phone in its case all the time :) …. handy when you have a house full of cats who refuse to consider you might want a space they can’t “enter” – LOL — thank you, Liat!!

      You’re welcome! Yay! I love mine – I’ve made like 3 of them because I lose one every few months – but they take like an hour to make. Glad you found mine!

    Thank you for the IPhone cozy pattern! I’ve been planning to devise something to use to carry my phone when I’m walking for exercise and have no pockets.

    I will add an icord strap and hang it around my neck!

    So glad I joined your newsletter list!

    I have been looking for an iphone cozy! Wonderful and I like Virginia’s idea for the i-cord strap. I got a new Ipad recently and need a cozy for that now. Thanks for the pattern and now I can use up my stash yarn.
