I made a felted phone cozy for my sister for christmas. It turned out awesome. My only problem now is that I lost the pattern! boo hooo!! I'm so upset. It came off of a ball of Bernat Lana Wool. If anybody knows of it, can you let me know?? My house cant take anymore turning upside down! If I can find the pattern, I'm going to make another one, but instead of the handle I'm going to make it with a button in the front and a "fold over". I think that sounds right. umm, i dont know how to post a picture!! help!! Actually, I have a picture of it posted on my blog.......www.squirrlyknits.blogspot.com

Check it out!

FYI, the Bernat website finally has Lana listed in their yarn catalog along with lots of cool free patterns - including your phone cozy! Love the way yours turned out so much I've been inspired to start my own. Smiley

This is how I knitted mine.  Cast on 12 st.  Knit in garter till it is double the length of your phone.  For the ears I knit across 5 st cast off 2 then knit remaining stitches.  Now you have to work one ear at a time. Knit across 5 st, turn, cast off 1 st, knit 3 then cast off last stitch.  Turn and knit even. Next row cast off first and last stitch and you will be left with one stitch. Do the same for the other ear. The arms are i-cords.  Add buttons for eyes and a yarn mouth.  If this doesn't make sense let me know.

Umm...what are i-cords and how do you knit them? Huh I've quite new at knitting so excuse my not-knowing-ness lol.  Tongue

A sewing machine and a lab coat. The best of both worlds.

Apologies for being a pain in the ass, but I cannot seem to get the ears right- they keep coming out funky.  For all of us who are still learning to knit (aside from the basic scarves), could somebody please try to explain the ears as plainly as possible. 

I understand that you can do them seperately and sew them on, but I'd like to be able to knit them on directly. 

Thanks in advance and anyone who manages to explain this to me will get some major crafty karma.

Hi Biraniac, let me try...

assuming u hv 10 sts for the body of the cozy, and using garter st...  when u reach the ear part, here's what i did...  we do the ear one at a time...

right ear
k2tog, k3, (leave the remainder 5 sts on a stitch holder), turn
k2tog, k2, turn (left 3 sts)
k2tog, k1 (left 2 sts)
break yarn

left ear
k2tog, k3, turn (left 4 sts)
k2tog, k2, turn (left 3 sts)
k2tog, k1 (left 2 sts)
break yarn

try it out and let me know if it works Cool

I can't really explain it, but here's a link with a video that shows you how to make them. http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/advanced_techniques/
It's the second from the bottom Smiley
