Lately I’ve been knitting a cosy to keep my phone safe from bumps and falls (well, landings really). A couple of years back I knitted a cosy for my iPod in the shape of a monster, but my iPhone is a slightly different shape, so I decided to make a new one.
Because I really like knitting things in the shape of animals, I thought I’d have a go at making a whale shark to keep my phone inside its belly. Whale sharks are big, gentle sea creatures that we get in Australian waters. They are classified as vulnerable by the IUCN and they just so happen to be the perfect shape for an iPhone case!
I’m almost finished knitting this little guy. He only needs a tail before I’ll be able to carry him around with my phone snug inside. Better yet, I’ve been taking notes and I’m working on a pattern so that you can knit one for yourself, if you like. I’ll keep you posted!
What do you think? Have you been making anything lately? I’d love to hear about what you’ve been working on.
