Mom saw the baby booties I made for Haile and was amazed with the stitch I used (pineapple stitch). She used to crochet as well in her younger years, mostly filet crochet and doilies since that was what's popular in her days.

So I thought of making her a phone cozy using this same stitch pattern.

I think she likes it because she keeps using it, unlike the other stuff I made for her which she only used once. I felt gratified that I actually made something for her that she can use on a daily basis.

This phone cozy is not for my sister Donna but I thought it's a good idea to put all my phone cozy patterns under her name because she got me into this frenzy in the first place. Now I want to make phone cozies for all my family and friends!

Special Stitch: Pineapple Stitch

The pineapple stitch (abbreviated as ps) is a vintage stitch that imitates the texture of pineapples, thus the name. This stitches looks like inverted hearts piled over each other on the right side. The wrong side presents a wonderful bulky texture that reminds me of stacked clam shells.

I've taken it upon myself to promote this stitch because I have not seen any modern pattern using it. What a waste!

Notes

The foundation chain of this phone cozy is 1.5 in only, 1 inch less than its intended width because I wanted the bottom to be flat.

How did I do that? The pineapple stitches that were crocheted on top of the first round of sc's were made without skipping. (Normally, there is a skipped stitch underneath the leg loops.) This doubles the circumference of the bottom round making it flat.

Abbreviation (American)

  • Ch - chain
  • Sc - single crochet
  • Sl st - slip stitch
  • Ps - pineapple stitch
