IT's awesome

I already downloaded a podcast (mugglenet) today and loaded it with 8 gigs of songs.  This makes work much better.

I got an iPod nano about a month ago and am in dire need of something cute to cover it with. Everyone's cozies look so cute! I've only just started knitting, but I figure if make one of these without doing holes for the screen and clicky-wheel and everything, it can't be too hard. Thanks for the inspiration!

A coworker of mine just got an iPod nano as an early Christmas gift, so I saw it as a perfect opportunity to make a knitted version of Monoped's iMonkey.  While the colors are not as funky as I would like, they were all I had available.

I just learned that my sister is getting an iPod for Christmas, and I'm looking forward to making another furry creation.  Thanks for the inspiration everyone!

It wasn't difficult, but the most challenging part was making the muzzle.  However, knitting such a small circle gave it a "puckered" effect, so his muzzle pokes out making him a bit more 3D.  I kinda like the fact that it pooches out like that!  I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who doesn't have lots of experience with decreases though, because k2tog row after row starts to get really tight (the project is much too small to intersperse plain knit rows between k2tog rows.

The general pattern I used was:

Worsted weight yarn on US size 6 needles
Body:
CO 9 st and continue in seed stitch until piece reaches 7 inches.

Switch to US 4
Ears:  CO 12 stitches in light color
2. Switch to dark color, K1 k2tog twice, k3, k2tog twice, k1
3. k2tog twice, k1, k2tog twice
4. k2tog, k1, k2tog
5. Bind off

Muzzle: using US 4 dpns
CO 18 stitches in light color and divide across 3 needles
Switch to dark color and do even decreases for 2 rows (I just make these things up as I go)
Slip yarn through the remaining stitches and feed it through to the purl side of the fabric.
Draw tight to make the puckered mouth.

Total time:  3 hours while talking to someone on IM (boy were my hands busy)

Bradbane, if u can crochet I have a pattern for iMonkeys for nanos on the completed crochet projects board. If you want it plain, just don't add the ears etc. I also recomend adding a loop of chain stiches at the back to secure your ipod.

You could print out a paper model to get the size from?

Mine was made for a nano, but I was just guesstimating from the dimensions listed on the apple website.  I've yet to find out if it fits because I'm still on the quest for the perfect button before I give my gift. 

The dimensions on the site are:  1.6 x 3.5 x .27 inches

I'm sure she'll love it!  Happy stitching~
