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, KnittingHelp.com is a great resource with videos!

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

      I’m not an expert but I did make this and I don’t think you can do it without dpn’s. Give them a try! There are plenty of YouTube videos to teach you how, that’s how I learned! Good luck!

    I’m confused. When you cast on, is it with the number 3 needles. Also, it says to move the markers. To where?

    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!

      Hi Jessica, I kept the kfb on the ends (so for example if it was kfb, k3, kfb, then the next row I did kfb, k5, kfb)

    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?
