okay! I tried my hand at it...and here is.....cozy bunny....

this is the first time I've ever decreased stitches, so it's a little sloppy...proud of myself nevertheless!  Grin

I'm so inspired. Tonight I'm going to do up something like this with some of the fuzzy yarns I have at home. My cell phone is a star tac so the standard cell phone bags never fit it, but NO MORE! I'll make my own.

This will be great for holiday gifts.   Grin

This project JUMPED off the page at me!  
I ended up making one in between making Thanksgiving dishes.  I used Bernat Boa yarn, in Phoenix (a bright fire-y set of oranges) held with black worsted yarn, and made a flaming kitty.  These will definitely be in my christmas packages to my cat-lover family.  

(It works really well in stockinette stitch too, when you use the furry yarn, because you can switch back to garter stitch to do the ears, they won't curl, and the fuzziness of the yarn hides the stitch change.  Good to know if you, like me, hate working strictly garter stitch, after making "The Scarf That Would NEVER End  Angry" in that.)


If you can't be a good example, at least you can serve as a horrible warning.

How adorable! I love the button closure in back, that's a great little detail. I think yours is just as cute as meomi  Smiley

Ok, here is one I whipped up. I scanned it and the color is wacked, it is actually a citrus green. Here is basic crochet instruction...
Chain 12, double crochet in 2nd loop from hook and then across. Chain 1 and turn. Repeat until rectangle measures about 12 inches (or how ever long you want it. It will be folded in half). When done with rectangle, chain , turn, *3 double crochet, chain 1 turn. 2 double crochet, slip stitch into next loop and tie off. This makes an ear. Tie on yarn on 3rd loop from other end and repeat from*. Slip stitch side together, going up one side, chain as many stiches as you want to get the length of strap you desire, then slip stitch other sides together.  Use embroidery floss to sew on the button eyes and make a nose.

Hey I made one too. You can see it on my web page here [note, the link is dead, sorry]  and if you read the whole entry there's instructions for how to knit it. I didn't explain how I finished it though...

I picked up 14 stitches across one side of the top, knit maybe like 12-14 rows in stockinette, then in the next knit row I knit 5, cast off 5, and knit 5; next purl row knit 5, cast on 5 (using that backward loop method), and knit the other 5 for the button hole. Then I knit maybe 5 or 6 more rows ending with a couple rows of K1P1 rib in the hopes of avoiding curling edges...and bound off in rib.

For the little handle, I just picked up four stitches right at one corner of the top flap, and knit it in stockinette until it seemed long enough. Then sewed the edge to the other side!

This is a light worsted-weight wool, and I did on US5 needles.

Update! Wow, a year later according to my site stats, this post is still sending me traffic! I'm sorry that my site crashed a while ago and this is one of the entries that got killed. I'm just getting back into Craftster lately and as soon as I restore that post I'll put another link here. Sorry.

I had to make one... and now here it is! *grin* Leftover yarn is great for this! (hence the bloo kitty) I have a rounded top cell phone, so I had to alter it a bit. Mine laces around the front so that I can use the phone with the cozy on. Nothin like having people look at you funny 'cause you're talkin into a blue kitty!

That blue kitty is much nicer than mine - but here she is anyways.
