Hurdle Stitch iPhone Cozy


A protective phone cover

This is a fun and quick knit with an interesting hurdle stitch pattern. It fits the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPod classic models, or other phones of similar size. The ribbed opening stops the iPhone from sliding out and the hurdle stitch pattern adds detail and makes the cozy thicker and more protective.
