Lots of people these days ahve smartphones, but they're not always that smart about how they carry them around. This Checkerboard iPhone Cozy likely would work for a variety of cell phones to add an extra layer of protection -- particularly important if you carry your phone around in your purse (or, like me, a diaper bag).


  • about 20 yards of super-bulky yarn (I used Red Heart Boutique Big & Lite in Violet)
  • one pair size 13 US (9 mm) knitting needles
  • tape measures, scissors and yarn needle
  • crochet hook (optional)


10 stitches and 16 rows per 4 inches in Checkerboard Pattern (2.5 stitches and 4 rows per inch).


Cozy is 4 inches wide and 6 inches tall as finished. To fit an iPhone 4.

Knitting the iPhone Cozy:

  1. Cast on 10 stitches.
  2. Work in Checkerboard Pattern as follows:
    • Row 1 and all RS rows: Knit.
    • Rows 2 and 4: Purl 2, *knit 2, purl 2. Repeat from * across.
    • Rows 6 and 8: Knit 2, *purl 2, knit 2. Repeat from * across.
  3. Continue in pattern until piece measures about 12 inches from cast on edge.
  4. Bind of in knit on the right side.
  5. Fold piece in half and sew closed using method of your choice. I divided the yarn in half and used it to slip stitch crochet the side seams closed with the right sides of the work together.
  6. Weave in any remaining ends.
