ipod cosy

I made this for my lovely new ipod I got for my 30th birthday. Knit in just one day, while I was off sick with tonsillitis (on my birthday!).

I wanted it very tight so cast on just 21 stitches (k2, p2, k2, p1)x3. I used my left over Zak and Sara sock yarn.

At the end I tried some slight shaping, but the nano isn't tapered at all, so I just decreased one for an even number, then decreased 2 at either end (like sock toes) before grafting. Should probably have decreased a bit more.

Works though, grips it tight enough that I'm not scared of it coming off, so I can throw my nano in my bag without worrying about stitches.
