Save The Planet In Style!
By knitting your own phone cover, you are reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in landfill.
We are all looking for small ways in which we can be environmentally friendly, and cutting down on our use of plastics is one of the best ways to do this. When we look at how often we use plastic in our day to day lives, it quickly becomes apparent how incredibly reliant on it we are. While carrier bags, water bottles and other single use plastics are some of the most obvious culprits, things like plastic phone cases are things we can live without too. Instead, protect your smartphone and save the planet with a stylish knitted cover.
Cutting down on plastics
You may think that your phone cover isn’t making too much of an impact on the environment. After all, you don’t buy a new one every week do you? Well, even if you only buy two or three in the space of a year, that soon adds up over the course of, say, five years. With millions of other smartphone users doing the same, it soon becomes clear just how many discarded smartphone covers are ending up in landfill. Ditching these plastic covers is one of the easiest ways to become a more environmentally conscious tech user. All you need to do now is get creative with some Deramores knitting supplies!
Sewing your cover
When you make your own phone or tablet cover, you are in total control of how it looks. With an endless combination of colours and finishes for you to choose from, the only limit is your own creativity. Perhaps you’ll opt for classic monochrome, or go all out with some bold rainbow hues. If you’re looking for some patterns to get you started, then the Tech Covers in Stylecraft Classique Cotton are your best bet. With the patterns showing you how to make a tablet cover, an e-reader cover and a mobile phone cover, you’ll be able to kit out all of your devices in no time at all.
Getting started with knitting is easy

Social media is full of knitters keen to show off their creations and expand their knowledge, so don’t be afraid to strike up conversation. If you want to learn with the guidance of a teacher in a group environment, do some research to see if there are any classes being run in your local area. You’ll soon be an expert, however you choose to learn.
A stylish and green option
Knitting your own phone covers won’t just allow you to get in touch with your creative side, but it will help you to lessen the impact you have on the world around you too. Once you have built up your confidence, why not knit some covers to give to your family and friends as gifts? They make great Christmas and birthday presents; and all the while you’ll be improving your skills, which will massively boost your confidence. What’s not to love about that?
