One of my friends is a Harry Potter fanatic, and since it's his birthday, I decided to make him an ipod cosy. But not just any ipod cosy, it's...
A Weasley Sweater Ipod Cosy!

I was going to Swiss knit the 'A' on the front, but I couldn't figure it out, and his party is tonight (procrastinators of the world, unite!), so I just chain-stitched. Much easier.
The bottom hem is sewn up so the ipod doesn't fall out, and the neck closes with press studs.

I wrote down the pattern as I went, if anyone's interested. It's slightly too big to fit snugly around the ipod, but I'm touting that as "headphone space" rather than "I bolloxed it up" If you wanted, you could just cast on fewer stitches, but it's an actual sweater pattern that I just reduced 4x, and you can't really reduce it any more than that, because you'd look pretty bloody silly trying to cast off .75 of a stitch, now wouldn't you?
