“OMG! I’m so excited I know what to do with my leftover sock yarn!”
I’m on my way to the Big Apple, getting ready to tell the national media what’s so great about knitting nowadays. One of my favorite things? All the accessories you can make.
So here’s a quick and easy pattern for a perfectly-fitting iPhone cozy pattern — a great way to use up leftover sock yarn, practice Magic Loop, and protect your precious screen!
It even features a slot to plug the phone in, as well as a ribbed “cuff” to keep the top secure.
