Hexagon Phone Cozy

Published by Shana | Filed under Free, Knitting, Patterns


I made another cozy while toying around with stitch patterns for a pair of mittens I’m going to design using the latest skein of yarn StitchnPretty sent me. I love the little bits of silver the yarn has in it. Gussies it up, but isn’t harsh on the hands when knitting. This one is going to a co-worker to protect her blackberry.


m1 – Make one – purl into the thread that runs between the stitch just worked and the next one on the needle

sl1 – Slip one – slip stitch to the right needle as if to knit

psso – Pass slipped stitch over – bring the slipped stitch off the left needle so that it wraps around the stitches worked since slipping it. This is a decrease.

    Hi, I’m sorry but I am confused on row 4 and 5. If I make 1 that means I increase by 1 but the next row runs as if I don’t. Can you explain a bot more as I love the design andwould love to make it? Thanks.

    Hi, I can’t understand why cast on stitches are on cable needle. Confused!

    You cast on half the stitches on the cable so you can start working in the round. Did you follow that link? It explains better than I can.
