Another Crazy Cozy

I got a new cell phone for Christmas. (I got it in October, so it was a very early Christmas present.) And me being me, I knew I had to knit it a cover/cozy/carry case. My last cell phone had one. My nook has one. Yes, I'm crazy that way.

After my panicked Christmas rush, I finally had some time to sit down and knit me something. I had time to think about what I wanted to do with this one. My last cell phone was considerably smaller than the one I have now, so I knew I was going to have to rethink the last one's concept.

I started with this...

iPhone cozy try 1

Isn't it ugly? I try to avoid the ugly first try, but this time I couldn't help it. Although, this gave me sizing ideas, so my next one turned out so much better...

It's not quite there, but it's so much closer. I can make due with this until I figure out how to make it just the way I want it. (First, I'm going to need to get some yarn in a brighter color.)

What do you think? Will a bright orange make all the difference?


  1. I think the first one looks cute, although I really like the pattern on the second. I'm not sure a bright orange will look any better, but that may just be because I prefer paler colors.

  2. Cute! I so hope you're gonna post the pattern, cuz I'd love to do one up in a nice earthy sage color. The orange sounds cute too, maybe with a blingy button or two. :)

  3. They look beautiful. I know several girls who would love those.

  4. I don't think that it's ugly at all. But it would certainly look funky in orange.

  5. OMG! I just saw a fluorescent orange yarn at Joann's! PLEASE make it fluorescent?
