I made a little red turtleneck sweater for my ipod nano.. the poor thing looked a bit cold..  Smiley

It is inspired by lbdancer123's post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81628.0
I came up with my own pattern.  I wrote it up as I went along if anyone is interested.  Smiley



iPod Nano Cabled Turtleneck Sweater Pattern

Size US 4 (3.5 mm) strait needles.
Gauge is about 6 stitches by 8 rows to the inch.
I believe the yarn that I used is Plymouth Encore - Knitting Worsted Weight.
Tapestry needle to sew up the sides.

Body (make 2)
Cast on 15 stitches.
Work in knit 1, purl 1 rib for 6 rows.

Cable Pattern
Row 1: K1 P1 K1 P2 K2 P1 K2 P2 K1 P1 K1
Row 2: P1 K1 P1 K2 P2 K1 P2 K2 P1 K1 P1
Row 3: K1 P1 K1 P2 (Knit the second stitch through the back of the loop, leaving the first stitch on the needle and working around it.  Then knit the first stitch.  Slip both stitches off the needle.) P1 (Knit the second stitch, leaving the first stitch on the needle and working around it.  Then knit the first stitch.  Slip both stitches off the needle.) P2 K1 P1 K1
Row 4: P1 K1 P1 K2 P2 K1 P2 K2 P1 K1 P1

Repeat cable pattern (rows 1-4) a total of 8 times.

Cast off 5 stitches.  Knit 6 stitches, transfer the one stitch you just knitted back onto the needle you just knitted it from.  Then transfer the 5 stitches you already knitted into a holding needle, or such.  Then transfer the 1 stitch you already knitted back onto the right needle from the left needle, and proceed to cast off the remaining 5 stitches.  Then pick the 5 stitches you were holding (that appear to be the neck of the sweater) back up and knit 5 rows in stockinette stitch (k1 row, p1 row).
Cast off remaining stitches.

Arms (make 2)
Cast on 8 stitches.
K1 P1 rib for 4 rows.
Stockinette (k1 row, p1 row) for 30 rows.
Cast off all stitches.

Sew the sides of the sweater together with the arms in the sides.  Sew up the neck, but not the neck opening.
Please note that when you sew the arms into place, they will naturally curl back onto themselves on the wrong side of the stockinette stitch.

And your finished!  Congratulations!! Cheesy
Now your Nano will be all cozy!  Smiley

If you have any questions or comments, please, dont hesitate to ask!

If you make one, please post a picture of your iPod enjoying it!  I'd love to see!  Cheesy

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I agree, a pattern would be almost as delightful as the project itself.
