I just got a new HP iPAQ about a week ago and yet its case had already started getting worn out  Undecided , so... I made a new one!



The kitty idea wasn't mine, I saw a picture of a knitted iPod case and wanted one too. Wink

The picture links to its Flickr page with more info.

Wow how did you make it any chance for a tutorial on it? It's really cute I could use a new holder for my iPod.

I'm kind of a crochet beginner myself, I'm not that familiar with the terms, but... Basically you just start a chain the width of the phone/iPod and do hdc stitches around and around the chain, making it wider if necessary, until you get a little flat bag the height of your iPod. The two loops for the closure are just chains too.

The ears are basically wide triangles (start a chain and go back and forth with sc, making it taper till you get to the top), a white one and a pink one for each. Oh, for the case I used two strands of yarn ('cause we only have skinny yarn here :/ ) except for the ears; one strand only. Sew the pink triangle onto the white triangle, and sew the ears onto the case, curving the ears like a real cat's.

And then you do the face, and hand-sew a lining at the lip of the case if you want. Smiley

Sorry it isn't quite a tutorial, but it's pretty simple to make!

I can hardly believe you are a beginner - you have done such a good job of designing and making this. I can't wait to see your next project.

Aww, thank you. ^_^ I've been making a lot of stuffed animals and a few bags, pretty much all of them from free patterns. So I've picked up the basic skills to be able to make simple stuff like these. Now if only I have more yarn... Grin

It's so cute and adorable!!!! I love it! I was just wondering if you could further explain what you meant by

How do you do hdc stitches around the chain? (Sorry, I hardly know much at all, I just started to learn to crochet last week) Thank you!

How do you do hdc stitches around the chain?

Heehee, when I was starting out and was following a bag pattern and came across this part, I had to ask a fellow Craftster to help out too. Cheesy Basically, like in the picture below, instead of doing it row by row to form a rectangle, you start to make an "oval" by going on the other side of the chain. For the first row or two, after the chain, I did three hdcs in the "corner hole" so the oval will be pretty flat, to accomodate the thickness of my phone. But afterwards just do one stitch for each stitch (I call 'em holes Tongue ), to form a straight tube that's closed at one end and open at the other.



BTW, the pic was when I was trying to make the bag I had problems with; pretend it's a chain with a row of hdc stitches ('cause I'm not sure if it is). And unless you're left handed, when you're working on it don't lay it out like in the picture, flip it over instead. Wink

Sorry if it's a bit confusing, but just try things out until it looks right. Grin
