Note: This pattern will give you a cozy that fits one of the fairly large, 3rd generation iPods. If you’re making it for one of the slimmer ones, you may want to cast on 28 stitches instead of 30 and follow the pattern from there.

Cast on 30 stitches fairly loosely. Divide stitches evenly between 3 or 4 needles and join.

Work in k1p1 ribbing for 6 rounds.

Work in stockinette for 12 rounds.

Switch to navy and knit for 5 rounds.

Switch to black and knit for 1 round.

Switch to forest green and knit for 5 rounds.

Switch to black and knit for 1 round.

Switch to yellow and knit for 5 rounds.

Switch to black and knit for 1 round.

Switch to dark red and knit for 5 rounds.

Switch to black and knit for 3 rounds.

At this point, your work should be the length of your iPod. If it’s too short, continue knitting in black until it’s long enough.

Divide stitches evenly between 2 needles. Break yarn and thread using a tapestry needle. Seam the two sides of the tube together with kitchener stitch for a clean finish.

Alternatively, use a 3-needle bind off, or simply bind off normally and then sew the tube shut.

Weave in ends and slip onto your favorite iPod!

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
