Yesterday and today I crocheted cell phone cozies! One's in a mustard color, which I didn't get a pic of yet, and the second is for my sister's ipod. It's a teal color if you can't tell in the pictures. I didn't add a face to her cozy yet, though.
I've seen envelope-type cozies like these before, but didn't actually plan on making them till I saw this listing on Etsy.
Based on these:
Aren't they adorable?!
I'll write instructions on how to make a basic envelope cozy, but you'll have to figure out how to do the arms and legs.
Basically, I chained however many till it could reach around my phone/ipod (make it an even number). Slip stitch into the first stitch so you have a loop. Then I started single crocheting in the round, so basically you're spiraling upwards into a tube. Keep going till it's about an inch and a quarter away from the height of your phone. Now you're making the slit. Divide the number of stitches you chained in half. (example: I had 22 stitches/2= 11) Single crochet that many stitches and stop (you'd crochet 11 stitches if you had 22 stitches). Now chain the half number (you'd chain 11), and single crochet back onto your work (or into the 12th stitch). You should now have a slit in your work. Start crocheting in the round again as usual till it's the height of your phone, along with seam allowance so you can seam the top and bottom. Bind off. Seam top and bottom. Done!
If it's confusing just leave a comment and I'll try my best to answer. :)
that's a bunny, if you can't tell.
