Knit a quirky storage place for your phone with this iconic red UK telephone box pattern. This phone box is made from knitted panels with embroidered details, and uses plastic canvas grids to strengthen the walls. Instead of making a storage box, you could simply knit the exterior pieces and stuff them to make a squidgy phone box toy.

Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the pieces are knitted in acrylic DK yarns on single pointed needles (not in the round). Please be aware that this project does take some time to make up because of the decoration and finishing, so a little patience and attention to detail is needed.

A pair of 3.25mm single pointed knitting needles (US 3)

Sirdar Hayfield Bonus DK; double knitting/light worsted weight; 100% acrylic; less than a 100g/280m skein in each colour.

Tapestry needle, bobbins for intarsia colour-work, canvas grids to strengthen the walls, plus embroidery thread and buttons to decorate.

One size only - The box is 7.5cm wide x 15cm tall.

For confident beginners and above, other techniques used include casting on and off, knits, purls, intarsia colour-work, embroidery and seaming to finish.
