A few weeks ago I was contacted by someone from the publisher of the new book "One-Skein Wonders" to see if I wanted to try knitting a pattern from their book and give it a try. I knit up the cell phone carrier last night- it's a great beginner pattern, and took me less than an hour to do (very fast!) I let it block overnight and and just seamed up the sides this morning.
One-Skein Wonders: Cell Phone Carrier
Actual Knit Time: An hour! (Great for those last-minute gifts)
Needles: US8 Inox circulars
Yarn: Leftovers of A.L. Sauveterre's luxurious merino in Highland Heather Colorway which has been long discontinued.
Button: Isn't that button great??? I found it at Joann's and think it adds to the fun styling.
Pattern Notes: I have a bit of a bigger phone since it opens up in the middle for a keyboard so I had to up-size the pattern. Since the yarn I used is a dk weight, I double-stranded it using the same number of stitches to CO as noted in the pattern and it upsized perfectly! It's hard to find accessories for these larger phones, all of my old flip-phone accessories no longer fit.
Final note: I love the case, very fun and
functional. The colors are gorgeous also and remind me of missoni
shades! Now I'm going to have to make one for my mom!
P.S. mitered blanket coming soon - I'm currently wrestling with a huge number of ends! Believe you me I did not fully think through what I was getting myself into when I started this project =)
