For Christmas I got a nice (and very shiny) MP3 player, so I wanted to make something that would protect it for when I'm putting it through daily use Smiley. So, with my new wool and hook, I set to making a case for it  Smiley

(Linked from my DeviantART page)


I will include a pattern if anyone wants it, but I don't want to type it out right now xD

I would love a pattern, a little bigger and that would make a perfect little cosmetic/first aid bag (I'm a student nurse so I carry around things like a spare plaster, 4head and paracetamol along with my lipgloss, compact mirror and mini hairbrush)

I was thinking that if I couldn't use it for my mp3 player (cos I forgotten to allow for the earphones xD) I could use it as a little purse Smiley but really I think to fit that kind of stuff in you're gonna have to make it bigger... So I've included the stitch multiple things so you can make it bigger Smiley

When using a 3.5mm hook with this wool for 3.25mm to 4mm hooks the approx measurements are:
Height: 8.6 cm/3.39 inches
Width: 10.4 cm/4.09 inches

I am using the American names for each crochet stitch where a sc is not a slip stitch

Main body:

Solid shell stitch (from Basic Crochet Stitches 250 to Crochet by Erika Knight)

Ch 26 (multiple of 6 +1, +1 for base chain)
First row: 1 sc into 2nd ch from hook, *skip 2 ch, 5dc into next ch, skip 2 ch, 1 sc into next ch and rep from * to end, turn.
Second row: 3 ch (count as one dc) 2 dc into first st, *skip 2 dc, 1 sc into next dc, skip 2 dc, 5 dc into next sc; rep from * ending last rep with 3 dc into last sc, skip tch, turn.
Third row: 1 ch, 1 sc into first st, *skip 2 dc, 5 sc into next sc, skip 2 dc, 1 sc into next dc; rep from * ending last rep with 1 sc into top of tch, turn.
Repeat second and third rows until 21 rows (the height) are completed. Edging optional, 1 row of sc used.
Fold in half from top to bottom so that the shells are facing either up or downwards. and sew along opposite sides.


Griddle stitch (from Basic Crochet Stitches 250 to Crochet by Erika Knight)

Ch 26 (multiple of 2, +2 for base chain)
First row: Skip 3 ch (count as one dc) *1 sc into next ch, 1 dc into next ch; rep from * ending in 1 sc into last ch, turn.
Second row: Ch 3 (count as one dc), skip 1 st, *1 sc into next dc, 1 dc into next sc; rep from * ending 1 sc into top of tch, turn.
Rep second row until button hole row (compare flap to body for prefered position on button hole)
As a multiple of two, see how many stitches wide the button is. Subtract this number from the total amount of stitches, and divide the new number by 2. This number is the amount of stitches before and after the button hole. ( 26 - 4 = 22, 22/2 = 11 stitches)
Continue to stitch the row for the amount of stitches calculated, then ch the number of stitches for the button, then continue on with the griddle stitch remembering to use the correct sc or dc for the stitch below.
Stitch the rest of the flap refering to the body for prefered length.
Sew flap onto body (best done from the base chain side of the opening on the body)
Edging optional (none used)

Sew on the button under the button hole with thread or wool (used)

Lovely! It's very cute. Thanks for the pattern - I added it to the Craftster Pattern List on the main Crochet page, if you don't mind. Smiley
