Crocheted iPod sleeve to look like the TARDIS. I even wrote a pattern! First pattern I've ever written, so please give me feedback on how well written the pattern is.

Materials:
size F hook
Yarn needle
Blue yarn
Small amounts of:
cream yarn
black yarn
yellow yarn

Optional:
button
thread to sew on button

Gauge: 5 stitches end up being just a couple centimeters longer than 1 inch

TARDIS

Chain 31

Row 1-12: Starting in second chain from hook, SC 30. Chain 1, turn

Finishing: fold in half so it wraps around the iPod. SC around three edges, leaving one of the shorter ends open to slide the iPod in. If you want to leave a hole to plug in the USB cable, working on one of the shorter ends, SC 4 through both pieces. In the next 7 holes, pull up yarn and bring through loop through the top piece only. SC another 4 through both pieces then continue SC around the last edge.

*Note: for smaller iPods, crochet less than 30. Chain enough so that it wraps snugly around the iPod, then add on 5 more stitches. That will be your first chain.


Windows (make two)

Chain 5

Row 1-3: Starting in second chain from hook, SC 4. Chain 1, turn

Leave a long tail to sew the windows to the TARDIS

Black Sign

Chain 14

Row 1: Starting in second chain from hook, SC 13.

Leave a long tail to sew the sign to the TARDIS

Light

Chain 4
Row 1-6: Starting in second chain from hook, SC 3. Chain 1, turn

Fold it down in half and sew to the top piece of the TARDIS

*Note: If you dont make the light long and then fold it, it will curl up and look gross.

Thank you so much! I think it would also be a good thing to mention that this pattern was made to fit over an iPod classic.

This looks amazing. That's sooo sweet of you to write up a pattern. I've never written a full pattern before, just some editting scribbles to remember how to adjust slipper patterns. I can't wait to get some blue yarn so I can make this for my hubby. I think I might make it as a pin that he could put on his backpack.

That's cute! Does anyone know the length of chain needed to make this fit an iPod Touch? I don't have an iPod at all, but I'd like to make this for my friend.

I love this! I had to make one right away!  My mom loved it and is going to steal it from me for her ipod, so I will have to make another!  Thanks for the pattern!  Here's a picture of mine.  Grin



I couldn't find my F or G hook, so I had to use my H hook.  My niece has been getting into my craft stuff and hiding it around the house! Luckily my H hook was in my bag I take to work.

I used a 4mm hook instead of a 3.75mm (F), but there was just no way it was going to fit following the instructions. So I made it a side join, and threw on a bunch more rows. It has ended up being more inspired by, than following, your pattern, but I'm glad I made it just the same.
