this is a tutorial for a very basic iphone sock. it’s a great project to use up sock yarn leftovers. it will fit quite snugly, which is great because your precious iphone won’t slip out.
here we go:
yarn: fingering weight, any 4ply sock yarn or similar will work fine.
CO 38 st.
distribute them on 3 needles and close the loop, being careful not to twist: 10 st on 1st needle, 19 st on 2nd needle, 9 st on 3rd needle.
k1, p1-ribbing for 6 rows
k needles 1 and 3, work pattern over needle 2.
repeat the pattern until the desired length (about 5 inch). i worked 6 pattern repeats.
– = purl
empty box = knit
when you have finished the last pattern repeat, work needles 3 and 1 once more. put the stitches of needle 1 and 3 on one needle. you’ll have 19 st on each needle.
now you are ready for grafting, which is described here.
weave in the ends and enjoy your iphone sock!
