Here is a really useful item to make for yourself or to give as a gift or sell for charity. A mobile phone cushion will hold your phone upright. Knit in one piece, this is one of the easiest knitting patterns you could make. Great for beginners and best of all, it’s completely free!
Made with oddments of yellow knitting yarn but you can use any colour you like. 3mm single pointed needles were used. You will need a small amount of toy stuffing for inside the cushion front and back.
Main Piece – Make 1
With your chosen colour, cast on 50 sts Starting with a purl row stocking stitch 53 rows, at row 16, add a stitch marker at stitches 13 and 37 on the outside (smooth) side of the work. Cast off
Fold the finished piece in half so the row ends meet and sew them together. Then fold the piece and place on a flat surface so the seam is in the centre is visible and the two stitch markers are at either side of the work.
Take a thread and sew all the way through the work from one stitch marker to the other – see picture
Add toy stuffing the smaller section of the cushion and seal up completely with stitches along the front edge
Add toy stuffing to the larger section but this time fold the upper edge so that the main seam is at one corner of the work and the new seam is at a right angle to the flat surface. Make sure there is enough stuffing in the main piece before sealing it up completely.
