FO Friday - A Knitted 'Fitbit Chrysalis' Pendant

Thanks for the messages following yesterday's post. It sounds as though a little rash is quite common when chemicals get trapped under metal worn next to the skin, so I'm hoping that it'll all go back to normal soon enough. In the meantime, I've finished v2 (slightly smaller than yesterday's prototype) of the little chrysalis for my Fitbit Flex tracker and am wearing it around my neck. It's made from a tiny leftover yarn scrap which was handspun by a friend. 
Handknit Chrysalis for Fitbit Flex
The steps seem to be tracking fine, so I just need to remember to put it on each morning as I'm no longer tracking sleep.

As these take hardly any time to make, I think I'll knit a few more in different colours, and I'd certainly like to make some in textured yarn or to embellish them with buttons or embroidery. (The back is plain stocking stitch - a little boring in a plain yarn but would look nice with buttons or beads...). It would also work for holding other things such as crystals, and small keepsakes - Little Miss and my sister have both asked for one already.  I know what I'll be doing this weekend!!


  1. Do you happen to have a pattern for this? I'm trying to find a pattern for a chrysalis to show my kids the stages of a butterfly, and this would be perfect!!

    1. I didn't write it up as a pattern I'm sorry - I just kind of made it up. It's possible there are notes in my journal, if you reply with a way to contact you (your comment is anonymous) I'll take a look for you.
