  1. Is there reason why we couldn’t use the “toe up” casting on method to start the iPhone cozy? If there is something I don’t like doing is the sewing stuff. After casting on, perhaps a little cast off/on might leave a place for the charging cord. After finishing this pair of socks, I might try this…well, I will do it if there is any yarn left.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!


    1. Virginia, you are so welcome! I’m so glad that you like the iPhone cozy. What a cute idea to add the iCord strap.

      I’m so excited that you’re a party of the KNITFreedom community and are enjoying the newsletter. :)

  4. 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!!

    1. 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!

    1. YOU are amazing!! Just curious – how did you find this pattern? I’m so happy it was exactly what you were looking for!
