Felted Cell Phone Case

Destined to be one of my favorite patterns, this cell phone case knitted-up quickly and felted like a dream. I simply cast-on 32 stitches, knit a tube with size 8 double points and one strand worsted weight wool (Paton’s Classic Merino used here.) I made it about 6″ long, maybe a little more, bind off 17 stitches and work another 4 or so inches for the flap. Bind off, weave in ends and felt. This one was about half-way felted in one full cycle, so I hand-felted it the rest of the way. I cut a button hole with scissors and that was that. My inspiration/pattern for this project was found here. The dimensions are about right for my phone. A smaller phone might want theirs to be right at 6″. The 4 inch flap is perfect. I inserted a broken flip phone into mine while it was wet to block it and let it dry overnight. Excellent to use stash wool and I think these would make great christmas gifts.

  1. Very nice! I just came across some feltable wool leftovers in my stash, and this would be perfect. DD has been agitating for a cell phone case.

  2. Oh, this looks awesome! Thanks for sharing the link and your modifications – I’m in desperate need of a cellphone case – or, my cell phone is, actually – and this would be just perfect! Love the color too!
