A Cozy Little Cell phone Cozy!

Materials:

1 skein Patons Classic Merino Wool (Brown)- Main Color.
Small amounts of 2 more colors for the vine and the flowers.
1 set US 6 straight needles
1 US G/6 crochet hook
1 Tapestry needle
1 button
Optional: sewing needle and coordinating thread.
 
Gauge for this project is more dependent on your phone size than anything. So measure your phones height and width before beginning the cozy. I used my Motorola Razr for gauge, which this pattern is sized for. But remember that the wool will have a little give, so it will stretch a bit. Or if you make it too big, you could felt it lightly as well.

Pattern:
With the US 6 straight needles and the main color, cast on 30 sts.
Starting with a K row, work in St st for 30 rows. BO.
Fold the piece in half with the right side to the left side. With the garter st side out, seam the side and bottom together.
To make the vine:
Using the crochet hook, chain 45. After the 45th, insert hook into the 39th and sc. BO. The loop will serve as your button hole.

 

To make the large flower:
Using the crochet hook, chain 10, insert hook into the 1st and sc. Repeat 4 more times. BO.
To make the smaller flower:
Using the crochet hook, chain 5, insert hook into the 1st and sc. Repeat 4 more times. BO.

Finishing:
With body right side out, decide where you will place the flowers. Sew the flowers on using yarn and tapestry needle or sewing needle and thread. For the vine, start by placing the buttonhole over the front of the body where your button will go. Then decide how you will arrange the vine, and sew it on. Sew up any loose ends, place your button and take a picture to send to me!
