Hi Tech Cozy

Recommended Posts

We finally broke down and got a cell phone.  Still trying to figure it out.

I bought a cover for it, but it was to hard and bulky.  So out comes the new Crochet World Dec. 2017.  In there is a pattern for a cozy for a cell phone and a tablet.  So I put everything down and make one for a large cell phone.  It was fun to make and unusual.  Instead of crocheting like you usually do, you crochet in between the legs of each stitch.

Great job! I love the design on it. It looks like a cross between crochet and knitting. Wonderful! :)

Wow its gorgeous! Did you follow the color scheme in the pattern or make your own color combo?

Thank you all.  I actually tried to follow the color scheme with what I had in my stash.

While this is an old thread, I do love how the pattern came out! Did you end up having to do "planned pooling" or did it naturally come out like that?

This was a graph that was in the magazine.  I do not know what pooling is.  I have seen yarn that is called that.

Pooling is the get (often) ugly blobs you get most of the time with variegated yarn (you can tell I'm not a fan) but Red Heart has done some patterns with 'planned pooling' that looks like plaid.  Your gauge has to be 'just so', and you have to use a specific yarn  for it to work http://www.redheart.com/how-to/articles/quick-guide-to-color-pooling

This looks like 'waistcoat stitch',Amy posted a link to a Christmas stocking pattern using this stitch a while back...I think this was it
