Another iPod cozy

I made this one for a girl at work, I made this one out of cotton, so it will be a bit more durable

I call it “Bubblegum”

Pattern:

Cast on 28 stitches
Split onto 3 DPN’s
Knit in the round until it’s about 1/4 inch longer than your iPod (or iPhone)
Bind off 14 stitches.
On remaining 14 stitches knit 4 rows stockinette stitch
K2t on each end on every knit row for 3 rows (you should have 8 stitches)
Knit in stockinette stitch for 6 rows
Knit 3, bind of 2 stitches, knit 3
Purl 3, add 2, knit 3
Knit these 8 stitches in stockinette stitch for 4 more rows.
Bind off all stitches, weave in loose ends.
On bottom, sew together the open bottom end of the iPod cozy.

-Tip: While knitting in the round, feel free to switch colors as often as you want. I don’t cut and attach the yarn when I do stripes, I just pull it behind my knitting and let it lay there while I am doing another color, this saves a LOT of time, and it is a big ugly on the inside, but there are alot less ends to tie in, plus less knots to tie!

-Tip: If you want to do it ribbed just k2P2 the entire pattern, swapping colors as wanted.

On the pink and blue one I used Peaches and Cream, just because I had it on hand, but the cotton seems to work really well for this sort of thing, and holds up well to frequent use!

  1. I like this one even better. I prefer the seam on the side or back or wherever it is on this one. Ar they frustrating to use? I do not yet have an Ipod, so I do not get how you operate it inside a cozy.

  2. What’s the gauge and on what needles? I just started a knitting club at my church for junior high kids and right now we’ve got a small handful of regulars, but they’re being called nerds by their peers. I want to make a few of these to hand out as prizes for the youth group games to make them realize knitting can be cool! Thanks for the awesome pattern!

  3. That’s so cute! I knitted one in purple and white today, with 4mm circular needles (the magic loop method) and 8ply wool, in case anyone was wondering. It was a little small, as my iPod (gen 4) only just fit, so if I was going to knit another one, I would probably add a few extra stitches when casting on, or just use bigger needles. Also, I left a small hole at the bottom for my earphones. Thank you so much for posting this! I love it. <3

  4. what does ‘split onyo 3 dpn’ mean? I’ve tried to find the answer online, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere.

  5. It means split the the stitches onto 3 Double pointed needles, so you have equal amounts of stitches onto 3 different needles and you’re knitting in the round. I think you’ll end up with 9 stitches on 2 needles and 10 on one, since you can’t divide 3 into 28. Hope that helps… If you dont want to knit in the round, you can just knit it flat then have a seam going up the back or side.
