For iPod Nano that measures 9 x 4 cm (3.6” by 1.5”).

This pattern for an iPod cozy can be modified in unlimited ways!
This seamless cozy is knit in the round using magic loop, with an invisible cast on and a stretchy cast off. It features a hole for the earphones, and closes tightly around the iPod, helping to avoid scratches when you are on the go. As it requires very little yarn, it is a great stash buster – and, you can make it as a perfect customized gift in a minimum of time!

To make this cozy, you should be able to do (or willing to learn) the magic loop method, Judy’s Magic Cast On (JMCO) and the Tubular Bind Off. The pattern provides useful links when applicable.

The basic pattern for the cozy will be supplemented by modifications and additions which will be released later. The many different versions of the cozy can make perfect little projects to try out that one particular technique you wanted to learn! All versions are based on the basic cozy pattern.

Versions to come include:

  • An added pocket worked from side to side (available now)
  • A stranded pattern (skyline) (available now)
  • Twisted stitches (available now)
  • An added pocket worked from the bottom up
  • An added pocket worked on the bias / diagonally
  • An added ribbon instead of a pocket
  • Fair isle patterns
