A simple cable pattern knitted in the round to give a quick and easy knit which is pretty and practical! This was originally designed for an iPhone 3G (dimensions: 11.55cm height, 6.21cm width, 1.23cm depth).
Yarn: 20g leftover Aran weight wool (19sts per 4in – used Rowan RYC Cashsoft Aran in Bluet in image above)
Needles: 5.5mm double pointed needles
Other Equipment: Embroidery needle, cable needle, 2 stitch holders, 1 stitch marker, 1 button for decoration (optional)
CAST ON: Cast on 28sts and arrange them evenly over 3 DPNs, joining them in the round being careful not to twist the stitches and place a marker at the beginning of the round.
RIBBING: Work five rows of twisted rib (k1tbl, p1)
CABLE PATTERN: Row 1 – (k1tbl, p1), slip these sts onto cable needle and hold in front of work, (k1tbl, p1) the next two sts, knit the two stitches on the cable needle back onto the DPN. Repeat this pattern six more times, bringing you to the end of the row.
Rows 2, 3, 4 – (k1tbl, p1) to end of the row
Repeat these four rows 4 more times, or until the cosy is long enough to fit your phone in.
FINISHING: Transfer the first 14sts of the row onto one stitch holder and the next 14sts onto another. Turn the work inside out, transfer the stitches back onto two DPNs and using the Three Needle Bind Off, cast off all stitches. Weave in all ends.
