Monoped, your link isn't quite right.

If you go into the photo gallery and open up your photo (when I clicked on the photo gallery, I can see your monkeys under your name on the first page of newly uploaded photos!), scroll down to where it says: "UBBCode: (this is what you copy and past make your picture appear in your posting on Craftster)." Copy that code exactly and just throw it into your message and preview it. I won't paste it here, because then it will appear under my name. Give it a try!

Very cute and clever idea!

copy and paste the following in your next post:

Here's my little blue cozy for my littleblue iPod mini. The 'button' is a bead from a necklace that I never wore.

DUDE! I totally was thinking about crocheting a hippo nano case, but never got around to it. I think I just might, now that you have re-inspired me. My poor nano keeps getting banged up.

....Oy, that sounded bad.

Hi Dinah_Kay-

The pattern is super easy.

I used leftover yarn, GGH Goa* and some pretty hand-painted cotton yarn for the accent.

For an iPod Mini:

Cast on 21 Stitches total on three 9 (5.5mm) double pointed needles (7 stitches per needle)
Join the round and knit until desired length - I think that'll be somewhere around 24 rounds
Before you cast off, add a lifeline** in your accent yarn, leaving long tails
Bind off, weave in ends.
Hand sew one end together, making sure bow will be in the center when the iPod is in place
Tie your bow!

Post a picture when you're done Smiley

I just made one for my non-mini ipod (cast on 24 total stitches, 8 per needle).  I didn't use a bow on mine, but wove in accent yarn up each side like so:

I have two more pictures of this one on http://flickr.com/photos/teenytinyturkey/.

**Lifeline:  http://videos.knittinghelp.com/knitting/videos/bas-tech-more/lifeline-rds.mpg

Thank you! I am a fairly new knitter, and have never used double pointed needles before, but now is as good a time as any:) Thanks for the pattern and explination!

This is my first successful project with double pointed needles, so if you need any help, don't be afraid to PM me!

You could always knit it flat... for your mini you could knit 21 stitches on straight needles until it's the right height for your ipod, and then bind off and seam up the sides and the bottom.

this is a great first project for DPNs, though, because there aren't any fancy stitches and it's a quick project.

I am going to try the double pointed needles. The knittinghelp.com website was so useful that I think I can handle it!

Thanks again!
Dinah
