Helios Phone Cosy
This will give you a happy pop of colour on a grey day. It’s a fun gift to knit in one evening from a bright oddment of yarn.
It is intended to be quick and easy and therefore it is seamed up the side and knitted in mock cables - rather than the real thing. It has an (optional) 3 needle bind-off along the bottom for those who would rather skip as much sewing as possible. If that is too daunting, you can just cast-off and sew up the bottom too.
