Okay, here's my very first post on craftster...hope it turns out well...
My friend wanted an iPod sock for her iPod mini, so I made her one from granny squares.  She picked out the colors in crochet thread, and I just made it up from there...

and back

I'm sure I must have went at uploading this picture in the most complicated way, but thanks to Jenniebean it is up!

gorgeous!  Very grateful dead!

And like a downward smoke, the slender stream
Along the cliff to fall and pause and fall did seem.

I absolutely love it...and would love to know exactly how you did it.

Thanks for your nice comments.  The granny square is just made of lots of double crochets.  I made a ring of ~4 chains, and then put ~12 double crochets in the ring.  Then I planned the next ring of double crochets so that there were ~25 I believe.  That made the center.  For the square-ing of it, I did single crochets up to two spaces before where I wanted te corner.  Then I did one half crochet for each of these two spaces.  The corner space itself is three double crochets.  Then repeat around.  I made 10 squares and sewed them together in an organized manner.  I filled in the gaps with rows of double crochet.  I think if someone were to make a differently sized square, you could make the whole thing out of squares and no filler.
Yeah, not my choice of color, but that was the commission!  The recipient usually goes for earth tones, so I was surprised when she picked these!

That's really pretty
 I have never liked granny squares but here they look fantastic and not too chunky clunky.
 I like the color choices you used too.

nifty!  I just got a bunch of that variegated too... I wonder.. I wonder... hmm... maybe I can make a few designs too... I am soooooo backlogged on things.  I still have an order to fill for a doll... I got hooked on baskets and am having a hard time letting go of them!  I love the idea of theipod pouch.. pretty but useful  as well!

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!
