knitted smartphone case

After holding out for the longest time among my friends, I finally caved and got a smartphone. In my defence, I didn’t actually buy it, it was second-hand from a friend who didn’t need it any more. My friends are delighted that I finally have WhatsApp.
For me the draw of course was that I got to dream up and make a case for it. I knew I wanted to knit, not sew, one this time and thought about how I was going to do it, make it one rectangle or two, how it would look when I joined the seams and so on. And then I thought ‘duh, I can just make a sock for it and it won’t need any seams at all!’

I used some coarse natural wool I bought years ago, knitting two strands together to make it even thicker.

A super easy, quick project and somehow I love the rough natural look in contrast to the sleek and shiny phone.

    Thank you all 🙂
    @ Ana, nothing wrong with that. I put Whatsapp on it but the first thing I looked for was how to mute most notifications 😉

      Oh, I’m curious to see how you adapt this idea! I’m not on Instagram yet, I still have to buy more storage for the phone and then I’ll get an account 🙂
