It’s nearly fall, which means many knitters are already eyeing new projects and yarns for the colder months. The only problem? Most of us have worked up quite a stash since last winter, and there’s no room to store any new fiber!
One easy way to bust that winter stash is knitted phone case patterns. These small wonders are not only perfect for little stash yardages, but they also work up quickly. While you’re making room for those fall yarns, get started on cozy phone or tablet cases for upcoming birthdays and maybe even the holidays.
Gather your stash and start pairing pretty colors using these knitted phone cases as inspiration.

iPig Cell Phone Sock
There are no seams to sew in this sock, so once you bind off, there are only a few finishing touches. If you don’t have any googly eyes, you can also embroider them using yarn. Grab a spare button from your stash for the cute piggy nose.

A phone case needs to be firm and durable. With that in mind, designer anna_rave designed this case on smaller needles to make sure the phone stays put inside the case. It’s the perfect project for using up scraps, too; go for stripes if you only have small amounts of yardage.

This textured stitch gives you stretch and durability, plus a lot of style! I’m digging the neon color in this one, but designer natalya1905 also whipped up a few neutral-hued cases to show you all the possibilities. This is your opportunity to use up that random button that’s hanging out in your stash.
