A few days  ago, I posted that I was going to make  an Ipod cozie with  an armband, since you can only get armbands for the mini’s.  My Ipod arrived and here it is!  Not bad for a first shot, if I do say so myself.  This is my first tutorial.  I hope it makes sense.


Here’s how I did it.  First, I knit two pieces.  A is 24 stitches of 2 knit, 2 purl rib and about 4 inches long.  I used two strands of (thin) worsted weight wool on #7 needles.  B is 14 stitches of the same yarn in a stockinette stitch on #5 needles (to make it a little more sturdy and less stretchy).  It measures  aprox. 13 inches by 3 inches.  I made two holes, 1 for the button (3 stitches wide) and 1 for the earphones  (2 stitches wide).



Next, I sewed the arm band {A}, on the inside, one side at a time, to the back of the pocket {B}.  I used straight pins to keep the arm band in place.  At this point, the pocket has not been sewn up the sides.  It is still long and flat (or curling, like it is in my picture). 



Next, I sewed the  pocket up both sides.



I added a button and reinforced any areas that needed it.  And there it is.

What a good idea.  If I had an Ipod and if if knew how to knit, I'd so make one of these.  Thanks for the tutorial.

Thanks for the Tutorial!  I was inspired to make one for my husband.  As you can see he gives it a thumbs up!

(Edited to add: Never mind, figured out how to solve the problem myself.  Doh, it just won't work on the upper arm!)

Great idea and may I say that your knitting is gorgy-worgy!  Kiss

For lazy knitters like myself I have a suggestion: cut the gathered band off of a sturdy glove or the tube off of a winter socl and hand-sew on a wallet pouch or just the remaining portion of the sock to hold your ipod. I did this for a milk money container in 5th grade, but I'm sure it could work for gadgets as well, that is if it is sturdy enough.
