When I received knitting needles as a gift for Christmas 5 yrs ago the first item I made was a plain knit ipod cosy for my ipod. It travels in my bag nearly every day so it is a little worse for wear to say the least! As I have a day off today I decided to make myself a new cover.
I made this pattern up but it is dead easy, just measure how many stitches wide you need it to be,mine was 16 stitches. I knitted a rib pattern for a few inches for the front flap and then changed to garter stitch for the rest, changing colour every 4 lines. knit to desired length and stitch up the sides. I'm going to add a button to the front flap to finish it off,easy peasy.
I love my new stripey cosy, lets hope it lasts for the next 5 yrs.
