Some of you might remember that at about this time last year I was working on a knitted cover for my iPhone, in the shape of a whale shark? At first the project came together really quickly and I began writing down the pattern with the intention of publishing it, so that anyone interested could make it too, but unfortunately I got distracted along the way. Between being promoted at work, completing a diploma, buying a house and trying to find time to renovate it, I’ve had quite a busy year, and until now I just haven’t had the time to put it all together.
The good news is, I’ve spent the last couple of weeks working really hard to get the pattern finished and it is finally done! I simplified the pattern from being knitted on DPNs to flat rows (for communication and tension purposes) and modified the fins to make them a better shape. I’ve even had a friend test the pattern to double check it works!
You can download the pattern here. It’s absolutely free! And while I made the whale shark as a cover for my iPhone, I think it would do equally well as a soft toy.
I’m so excited to be sharing my very first knitting pattern. I really hope you like it!
PS What do you think of the blog’s new look? Katie gave HOH a bit of makeover over the weekend and we’re pretty chuffed with it! It felt like time for a fresh start…
