iPod Cozy 02/09/2010

John wanted an iPod cozy that had windows for the controls and he already has a cover with a flap, so I went on a quest. I found separate patterns with little elements and decided to find a way to put them all together knitting in the round so it would go by more quickly and look neater than those stitched together.

You'll need
US 4 dpn's (set of 5)
Tapestry Needle
Button and thread

I was just wondering which ipod this is for. I have a 2nd or 3rd gen nano and am considering getting a touch. Just wondering which this one is for.

Thanks!

This was for my 2nd or 3rd generation normal iPod. I'm pretty sure they are about the same size as the ipod touch though the touch may be slightly skinnier. It shouldn't change much in the pattern!

Best of luck = )
