Well, here's the pattern. Hope you can all make sense of it, because this is my first time writing a pattern/tute thing:
Needles: 3 1/4mm for the rib, 3 3/4 mm for the main part (sorry, I don't know the other sizing systems!)Front/Back
(both the same, because I didn't bother to shape the neckline. I didn't think the ipod would mind being choked by a too-high neckline.
Cast on 24.
Work 4 rows K2 P2 rib
Work stocking stitch until work measures 7.5cm (about 16 rows)
Cast off 2 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows
Decrease until 18 stitches remain
Work 6 rows
Cast off 2 stitches at the beginning of the next 6 rows
You should have 6 stitches left, so work 2 rows of rib for the neckband.Sleeves
Cast on 12
Work 4 rows of rib
Work 5 rows in stocking stitch
6th row- K2, M1, knit to last two stitches, M1, K2. Repeat in every row until you have 14 stitches, then in alternate rows until you have 20.
Continue stocking stitch (without increasing) until work measures 8cm
Decrease at the beginning and end of each row until 4 stitches remain.
Okay, so you've got your 4 bits now. To make up pin
shoulder seams together (don't sew them, because then you won't be able to get your ipod in the cosy!), lay it out flat and sew the top edges of the sleeves in. Then sew up the side seams, the lower edges of the sleeves, and the bottom edge.
Then attach your press studs along the shoulder seams, do your letter on the front, and you're good to go! Actually, it's probably easier to do the letter before
you sew it all up, but I got carried away and had to do it afterwards.
Then wrap your ipod up, all snug and cosy and warm in its brand new Weasley sweater.
