here is my version of a cell phone/ipod cozy, which turned out to be too wide so i put a strap on and it is now a small purse

i wonder if people have come up with non-felt cozies. i'd be curious to see what other creative crafts people are using to store their ipods. i know a friend of mine picked up a woven basket that was th exact size & shape of her ipod and it looks really cool.

I'm really new at knitting (just completed my first scarf), but I need an ipod cozy.  In fact, I may buy an ipod simply so i can knit a cozy for it.  
Does anyone know of a site with very specific instructions for knitting these things?  I would love to make one kind of like the fuzzy soft pink one.

Looking at this is really great. I've just realized how to close the top of my purse. Thank you, by the way, those are really great.  I have to adapt it a little bit, I don't quite get the hang of felting

How cute!  I felted a flask cover as well. It works great because I store vodka in the freezer so when I fill up the flask to take along with, the very cold of the vodka causes the flask to sweat some and the felted cozy keeps the rest of the stuff in my purse from getting damp.

Oh my, of course!  I just bought a new flask, and the cover it came with was pretty lame. I had it hanging on my belt but it keeps banging off other stuff. I was thinking I would make something out of leather, but a good felted flask cozy is a great idea! 

Thanks :-)

I love the clover button!  I have been wanting to make an iPod mini cozy but I don't understand how to do a button hole.  PerhapsI'll try a snap.  But I love your crafty cozy!

It's not right but...
This is the geekiest thing I've ever done but ever since I lost the case my iPod came with I've been obsessed with making a new one. This is the croched version. I think fancy new technology needs a nice cozy cover-up just as much as a toaster.

I've had some requests for a pattern... I don't actually have stitch by stitch guidelines, but here's the basic idea:

1. First, I started from the bottom, working in the round and increasing a couple stitches each round to keep it flat.

2. When the piece was a long rectangle the size of the bottom of the iPod, I stop increasing and worked a couple rows around to start the sides off.

3. Then, when the sides reached the wheel circle, I started working the rows back and forth, rather than in the round. So for the first row with the opening, I worked almost all the way around, but left 4 stitches empty and turned back, the next row I left out another stitch on either side and doubled back. I continued like this, increasing rather than decreasing when the circle started to get smaller again.

When I reached the top of the circle, I worked in the round again for a couple rows, then did the same back and forth thing (without the increase/decrease) to make the screen window.

To finish, I ran a decorative, contrasting stitch around all the openings, but this isn't necessary. I actually made another that I like better all in a solid color.

Here's a diagram that may help (or hinder) you:

I'm having fun doing them in eyelash/fur yarn.  They look like I skinned a couple of muppets. 

(very silly, thanks to the google eye button)

(also highly silly)

To do these, I'm just casting on enough to cover the iPod, then doing rows of garter st until it's long enough, then decreasing each edge to make the pointy part.  The button loops are chain st (with a crochet hook).  Sew sides, add button.  Done.  I can crank one out in an evening.  My friends will all have very happy festive muppet-skin iPods soon.

I don't have an iPod but I love this idea - I am going to felt one for my palm.  (hi btw, I happened upon your board and love it!)

About the button hole and felting.  I just felted a wallet that has a button hole made prior to felting.  When I got to the area where I wanted my buttonhole, I bound off approximately the number of stitches that matched the size of the button.  I knew it was probably not going to shrink that much side to side but would probably close on itself due to the top to bottom shrinking.  On the very next round (or row), I cast on that number of stitches when I got to the bound off stitches.  On the following row, when I got to the buttonhole section, I decreased two stitches at the center of the  buttonhole.  This slightly rounded and opened the buttonhole.  Once felted, the result was absolutely perfect.  I would post a picture but I am at work (shhhhh, don't tell).
