Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun, color 115 Bit of Blue, less than one skein.  Tiny bit of misc black sport weight yarn for eyes.

Needles: Size 4 dpns

Gauge: 5 stitches per inch

Pattern:

Body:
Cast on 32 st.  Join for knitting in the round.  Knit 5 inches of stockinette.

Head:
One first round, bind off 16 stitches the stitches on needles 3 & 4.  On  the next round, Cast on 16 stitches to replace the stitches you just bound off.

Switch to the following decrease pattern:

Rnd 1 Needle 1 k1, k2tog, knit to end of needle
     Needle 2 knit to last 3 stitches, ssk, k 1
     Needle 3 k1, k2tog, knit to end of needle
     Needle 4 - knit to last 3 stitches, ssk, k 1

Rnd 2 knit

Repeat rounds 1 and 2 until 8 stitches remain.  Bind off in purl.

Back flap:
Pick up 16 st above where you cast off for the head.  Knit in stockinette for 2 inches.  Bind off.

Tentacles:
Sew together the cast-on edge of the body, using back stitch.  Mark with safety pins 4 evenly spaced places on both the back and the front for the legs (8 places total).  At each marker, pick up three stitches and work in I-cord for 2 inches.

Eyes:  
For the eyes, I placed the cozy on my iPod, marked the center of the front, and then spaced the eyes so they were each two stitches out from the center.  I duplicate stitched the eyes using the black yarn.  Here is the pattern:

    X   
X   X   X
X   X   X

Finishing:

Using sewing thread, sew a snap on the back of the cozy and the wrong side of the back flap, so the cozy can be snapped shut.

*************

I hope people like it!  Please feel free to ask if you have questions about the pattern, and if anyone makes it, I would love to see pictures of how it turns out.

That's so funny because when you first posted the photo of the squipod, I looked at the picture and made a pattern from it, and yours and mine are really similar.  I, too, said to have a gauge of 5 st/in and co 32.  However, in the version that I wrote up, the bottom is open with a small button on the back and a crocheted chain buttonloop, and the rest is all one piece, with a hole at the top for the headphone jack.

Nice job!  I love this idea.

And I never posted my version of the pattern anywhere, am just using it for my own knittiness. Grin
