From muck-up to phone sock

This past weekend I started this pattern for some pretty hand-warmers. Midway through the pattern I realized I'd mucked something up as it wasn't quite matching up with the image. So I altered the pattern a bit, hand sewed up the bottom and side, and ended up with a sock for my phone and/or iPod. All in all not a bad day for a mucked up project.

The yarn I got from a recent raid of Upcycle Exchange (an amazing group you fellow St. Louis crafters should consider joining, or just popping by their new store front for some craft supplies).

Below is the pattern I ended up with:

Phone/iPod Sock Pattern

Yarn weight: Light (yarn didn't have a tag, so I'm estimating)
Suggested Needle Size: 4.00mm

Cast on 34 stitches

Row 1: *k1,p1*
Row 2: *p1,k1*

Repeat Rows 1-2 three times.

Row 3: Knit
Row 4: Purl

Repeat Rows 3-4 fifteen times.

Row 5: *k2,p2*
Row 6: *p2,k2*

Repeat Rows 5-6 three times.

Fold in half (back of stockinette stitch showing), sew bottom and up side, fold inside out(outside in?) and you're done.
