rock, rock, rock, rock, rock-n-roll iPod....

Skulll iPod #1 (back)

I've been wanting to knit a new iPod cozy for a while now. So I've been scouring the 'net for a pattern. But I wanted one that allowed me to access to wheel, view the screen and see if it was locked. Oh, and I'm way too cheap to pay for a pattern.
I found this awesome pattern(pdf) at Grumerina. It fit the bill, AND I already had the yarn required! whoo-hoo!

Here is a shot of the front so you can see the design.

It turned out pretty good for a first go. I'm planning on doing another one so I fix it up a little bit. I stuffed up when I sewed on the plastic that covers the screen (you can see the black stitching on the other photo). And I want to make some sort of pocket or something to hold my headphones. But I like the pattern a lot and think I might to knit a 'spring' version!!!

wow its soo cute!! I'm stuck with my 3G one = too many holes to allow for all the buttons. I love how you covered the screen too. What a great patt!

That is so freaking awesome! I've been wanting to get a unique iPod case for awhile - now I just need to learn how to knit...
