these were my very first completed crochet projects.  it's also the first pattern i created myself.  yay me!

and here's the pattern!  they fit the ds lite.  i'm not sure if they would work for a regular ds.  also, i crocheted it pretty tightly so if you're a loose crocheter, you may have to use a smaller hook.

i used a US G/6 hook and worsted weight yarn.  i think i used caron simply soft brights.

chain 29

being careful not to twist the chain, join the ends with a single crochet.  this may take several tries because it's sometimes hard to tell if it's twisted until you finished your next row.

single crochet in a spiral until you have 36 rounds.  do not join each round; just keep crocheting.  i highly recommend using a stitch holder to mark the beginning or end of each round to make counting easier.  for my stripe pattern, i crocheted 3 rounds of each color.

fasten off leaving a long tail (about 12 inches?).  flip the tube inside out and use the tail to sew up the bottom.  weave in ends, then flip the sock right side out.

for the strap, i used the macram technique.  if you don't know how to macram, it's pretty easy and i'm sure you can find a good tut online.  i did about 110 knots for the strap, then tied it on to the open side.

the sock should be a little snug at first, but it will stretch to fit the ds perfectly.

I make crafts and people. Also crafts for said people.

Ha awesome, my first crochet project will be a cozy for my laptop. It's just fun to dress up inanimate objects and these turned out great, not to mention they're pretty darn adorable too Smiley
