How to Knit a Sweater for Your iPhone

The iPhoodie. Hoodie for your iPhone. It’s getting to be fall so don’t you think your iPhone deserves to be cozy? (If this looks familiar to you die hard knitters… I have had the pattern on Ravelry for a while now.) 

I’ve had this pattern on Ravelry for almost 2 years. It’s received 3,000+ “likes” on my own personal knit version and over 500 knitters have created their own iphoodie from my pattern. Now, I want to share it with all of you!

You don’t have to be a master knitter to do this, but you should know how to knit “in the round”. If you don’t know how to knit at all and want to learn, is a great resource with videos!

Below is the pattern. Enjoy, and happy knitting! (click the image to see the pdf of the pattern)

    Hi, I’m a little unsure of the increase instructions, can you clarify how to “Repeat rows 1 and 2 until there are 10 stitches before the first marker” I’m just not sure if I should only increase the same number of times and in the same order between each marker as in row one or if I should keep the increases in the same place, next to the markers? For example on row 3 do I K2, Kfb, K1, move marker, Kfb, K2, Kfb, K2, move marker? Or would I K3, Kfb, move marker, Kfb, K4,Kfb, move marker? I was just gonna try one way and see what happens but if I do it wrong I’ll end up with a mess! Thanks for the pattern, I love it!

    I am just wondering… can I make them for fundraiser for my sons’s highschool baseball team? I will make them in black and gold – the highschool’s colors.
    I will donate all my labor to the team, and all the profit goes to the team to help pay for baseball equipments on their wish list. Would you give me a permission?
