Flip-It Mobile Pouch

Seeing the 'braided mobile pouch' I'd designed for my daughter, her friend wanted one for her mobile phone.. now who am I to deny someone who's giving me not just a chance to create, but keep me out of mischief?  
And I thought (hah!) that I'd use the stash I had in hand, but then got to know that it was this young lady's birthday (or we just missed it?), so hey! that totally deserves a new yarn (yes, yes! of course its any excuse to buy new yarn.. but one must acknowledge that a birthday does call for 'new', right? .. and for all the nay-sayers.. well.. we'll agree to disagree)

This extremely simple two line repeat looks good from both ends.. and as this is a Blackberry flip phone, we can 'flip' the pattern around, and get a two-in-one.  Of course, the 'ribbing' and textured effect run either vertical or horizontal -  but you could actually make two out of one (pattern) as well now, can't  you ... hmmm, something to be said about the 'free , free.. buy-one-get-one-free' excitement, right?

A simple two line repeat pattern, using just ch, sc and dc. 
This simple mobile pouch can be made in half an hour, and fits the Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 & 8230. 
8130, 8120, 8110 & 8100. 

While this pattern has been made with a polyester cone yarn, it will work well with any fingering acrylic or wool.

Do enjoy making the pouch, and please do let me know how it turns out.  I'd love to link your projects to my page :-)

This, I think, is a super all-time gift for any occasion, but with the festive season around the corner, I am sure you can find someone who would love this.  
This pouch has been made for size 101.1 mm x 50 mm x 17.5 mm (3.98” x 1.97” x 0.69”).
