I wanted to share this pattern for those who want to hand knit something but don't have much time. This pattern is for an Ipod holder, but I made it a little longer to fit my boss's cell phone. She hooked her cell phone ear piece in the buttonhole on her blouse, leaned over to do something, and lost it. She ended up having to buy another one and said it was expensive. The little pocket on this is great for holding both the cell phone and the earpiece together and safe from loss or dropping it.
Almost everyone has cell phones these days, so it would be a welcome gift. You can sew either a D ring or a plain key ring (which you can get at a hardware store) and attach a lanyard to it to wear around the neck.
