The God of War game series is probably one of my husband’s favorites. Even I have to admit that the graphics on the God of War games are absolutely stunning… Other than that, I don’t have too much interest in video games, but my husband enjoys them, and I don’t mind sitting on the couch and knitting while he plays. 😉

Continue knitting in the round until your work measures 2 inches.
Begin omega pattern according to chart. The pattern refers to the first 24 stitches of the round. Note: when working the pattern, it may be easier for you to transfer the 24 pattern stitches to one needle so that you’re working the entire pattern on one needle and the back of the cozy on two additional needles. Two circular needles would also work well with all of the front stitches on one needle, and all the back stitches on another.

Continue knitting in the round until your work measures 7 inches.

I used the contrast yarn to single crochet an edging around the opening of the cozy to prevent curling. I’m also thinking of adding a pouch to the back for DH to carry an extra UMD, but for now, this is it!
