So, I got this Ipod for Christmas... and I figured that it needed a fitting container.

It's not really that crooked, it's just that the white is very fuzzy.  It's made with some black wool yarn I had around, and then felted.  The pattern wasn't much of one...

Body:
Ch 14
Sc in 2nd chain from hook, sc in next 11, 2sc in last ch (14)
-Turn the chain- so that you're now working in the other loops of the original chain.  Sc in first 12 ch, then 2 sc in last.
Now chain around and around until you've done 23 rounds.  This gives a sideways dimension of 13, with an extra stitch on either side to sort of join the front and back together.

Flap:
Sc in the back 13 sc, remembering to ch 1 for the turning ch, skip the first sc, and sc in the turning chain of the last row, <i>like every other damn piece of rectangular crochet you've ever done</i>.
Repeat for 10 rows.
Rw 11: Sc in first 5, ch 3, sc in next 5.
Rw 12-13: Sc 13 across

At this point, I felted the whole thing in a washer with hot water and detergent (and some towels, and a sneaker, and some other knitting, etc.).  Then, I sewed the button on, crocheted the fuzz around the flap and chain-stitched the inverted cross on the back.  Yay.  An hour-long project and now I can maintain my status as the "creepy goth kid" on the bus.  Or, you know, just protect the expensive electronic device.
If I made it for somebody else I'd probably be a bit more careful about keeping the rounds straight instead of just going in a spiral.  It's actually not that lumpy, though - despite the way the picture looks.

That's so cool. This kid (age 12 or s/t) on my bus also insists I'm goth. Just because I crochet bloodshot eyeballs... eventually i just convinced him I was a witch so he'd leave me alone lol

Yeah, the middle-schoolers love those labels...
Bloodshot eyeballs sound rad.  Do you have a post?
