stitch PATTERN for mobile phone case / sleeve

Cast on 45 sts.

Knit all your rows using knit stitch = garter stitch, until your work measures 5.5″, that is 50 rows with double knit cotton and the needle size as stated (or according to the measurement of your mobile phone).

Cast off but don’t weave in the ends.

The pattern can be adjusted to fit your device:  take the circumference and height and work according to that.

button loop i-cord

Knit an i-cord of about 4.5″.

How to knit an i-cord?

With double pointed needles:

Cast on 3 sts.  

Knit these sts (which are now on the right needle) and move it to the other side of your needle (without turning).

With the left needle in your right hand, knit the sts.

Continue in the same manner until you obtain the required measurement.

Cast off.

With single pointed needles:

Cast on 3 sts.  

Knit these sts (now on the right needle). ​

With the left needle (and without turning), move the stitches back to the left needle again.  Your working yarn will be on the left of your knitting. 

Knit sts again, transfer it back to the left needle again.

Continue in the same manner until you obtain the required measurement.

Cast off.

Use the cast off tail and your needle to close the side.

Weave in all the ends.

Here is a quick video to demonstrate how to sew your knitting pieces together:

to wrap it up:

Find the middle of your cellphone case and sew the i-cord on the inside of your knitted mobile phone case, to form a loop.

Place your i-cord loop in position and sew the rose to the front.

And there…you completed another knitting project!

Use this pattern to create more loveliness, cuteness and gift it!

Happy knitting!
