Depending on the wool you have used your cosy may vary slightly in length. At this point it is a good idea to check the length of your cosy

against your phone. If it does not seem a comfortable knit a few extra rows before you continue with the shaping for the bottom.

Making Up

When you have finished knitting you may want to decorate your cosy. It is best to do this before you sew up the side seam. I love wool

embroidery so have put some photos of various ideas that I have had on this pattern. There are some tutorials for the main stitches I

have used on my blog in the right sidebar where you will find Embroidery Corner http://ginxcraft.blogspot.co.uk/. You can make

something really pretty just by using a few simple stitches. Sew up the side seam of your cosy using the main shade wool. Use a mattress

stitch for the main body of the cosy, and a whip stitch when you are joining the rib at the top. Pop in your phone and you are ready to go.
