There are many people that want a cell phone cover to protect their phone, but they want one that is unique. One of the best ways to get a unique cover is to learn how to knit a cell phone cover.

Knitting a cover for your cell phone is not as hard as most people believe it is. There are some important things that you need to know that will make it much easier to knit your own cover for your cell phone.

Here are the most important things you need to do in order to knit a cover to help protect your cell phone from damage.

One: Find the skein of yarn that you want to use for your cover. It only takes on skein to make 3 or 4 covers so don’t buy too much, but be sure it is yarn that you really like, but be sure it is worsted weight yarn for the best cover.

Also, be sure that you get the straight needles that will be needed to complete your cell phone cover.

Two: Make the measurements that are needed to complete the cover. Most covers need to be approximately 2.5 inches wide or 6.5 centimeters and 4 inches tall. This will depend on the size of your cell phone so be sure you have it handy for measuring correctly.

Three: Once all the measurements have been made, start knitting. You want to cast on 24 stitches. Work in stockinette stitch until the cover measures 4 inches tall or the height that is needed for your particular cell phone. Be sure to end your knitting with a wrong side row.

Four: Now your knitting the cover is complete, but you have to be sure that the cell phone fits. If it doesn’t, then try again and be careful to measure everything before completing the cover to be sure that it will fit your cell phone. All you have to do is to place your cell phone in the cover to check for sure.

Now that you know how to knit a cell phone cover, you can see that it is not as hard to do as it may seem. Just remember to take your time and measure everything carefully. If needed, take time to practice knitting before making the cover, so you can be sure that you know how to make the stitches and everything correctly before starting. This will help ensure you get the cover right the first time around.

Summary: There are many people that want a cell phone cover to protect their phone, but they want one that is unique. One of the best ways to get a unique cover is to learn how to knit a cell phone cover. There are some important things that you need to know that will make it much easier to knit your own cover for your cell phone.

Happy Knitting,
