my friend wanted a knitted ipod sock. she only wanted a blue one, and didn't want to shell out the $30 for the official ones. so she had me make one. Smiley

caron sayelle "dark federal blue" : $1.00 (clearance!)
size 6 double pointed needles : 4.29
michael's 40% off coupon : - 1.72
tax: 0.29
total cost = $3.86

(i had a little bit of a lighter blue leftover)

this was my first project on dpn's, and it took me a little while to get the hang of it, but once i did, it was pretty easy. this project too me maybe two hours or so, on and off, since i was also watching tv & talking on aim. lol. it fits her ipod perfectly, so she's happy. Smiley

and to avoid having to type this out later, i thought i'd share:

materials
size 6 (4mm) double pointed knitting needles (mine are 7")
worsted weight yarn in an MC (main color) and LC (lighter color)
i think it's 10-ply worsted weight yarn that i used. regular cheap acrylic stuff.

gauge
finished ipod sock will measure a little over 2" by 5"

pattern
with MC, cast on 24. leave a long beginning tail to stitch up the bottom later.
spread stitches evenly onto three dpn (8 stitches per needle).

work in k2, p2 rib pattern for 4.5"
switch to LC and continue working in k2, p2 rib pattern until sock is about 5".
bind off.

using long beginning tail, stitch the bottom closed. weave in the rest of the ends, yada yada, tada! Smiley

Haha! I saw the SquiPod when pinkhairecyn finished it at our SNB, and I knew there was a lame joke in there somewhere but I couldn't figure out what! That was it! Hahha

So, here's my first post on craftster.  I know it's not a knitted project, but it is an iPod mini cozy.  I'm desperate to knit one for myself and I absolutely must have the holes for the screen and the wheel.  If anyone knows of a good pattern that incudes allowances for the screen and wheel PLEASE point me in the right direction.

My cozy is hand sewn from a pair of old jeans.  I don't have a sewing machine, so it's VERY rough.  My husband said "Hey, that's pretty cool, what are you going to put around those holes to make them prettier?  Are you going to hem them or something?"

Grrrrrr.

I should have put a strap on it, but to make a neck strap from a single strip of stretchy denim is tough.  I cut one fom the bottom of the leg up to the waitband at it still wasn't long enough.  *shrug*  For now I'll just keep it in my pocket until I knit one.

I took the pictures on my little office rock garden.






*crossing fingers*  I hope I posted the pictures right.

It would be a cephalo-pod!  I'm glad people like it.

I love everyones cozies tons.

hercuteness, I think the unfinshed openings work with your cozy. if you wanted to finish them a bit you could always use small scissors to mimick the pinking on the flap, or something like a blanket stitch around the edges. I like the unfinished look though personally.

I bought an ipod mini about a months ago, but I won't have it in my hands for another few weeks.  (it's in one country and I'm in another, and shipping is expensive) I've been soaking up all the ideas though and will be chroceting a cozy, and handsewing and xstitching another once I can make sure they fit porperly. I'm excited that my pod will have a wardrobe of it's own.

I got a new iPod (well, new to me -- it's a used 15gig third gen iPod) last week. This thread inspired me so I made a cozy for it yesterday. It's not knitted as I only just started learning to knit last week. I used fabric I had around the house -- red felted wool, with silk dupioni lining the flap. (It was pale gold dupioni that I overdyed with orange kool-aid to get that nice rich gold color.) My iPod dresses better than I do!  Here goes with the photos..
