This was the iPod cosy I made for my girlfriend's birthday present. It's made from a blend of peachy watercolour mohair and pink merino wool in garter stitch. This cosy was lined with dark brown cordoruy with a matching strap. There is a felt flower and button decoration on the front.This is a picture of it from one end - as you can see it fits an ipod snugly, but it would also be good for a cell phone. The strap works well because it keeps the contents in place, but it's easy to get the phone or ipod out by just pushing it to one side - no fiddly snap or button closures. It was fun to make so I've made another one and put it in my etsy shop. The lining on this one is vintage floral fabric:If you'd rather make your own it's really just a knitted square folded in half and stitched together, with the fabric lining sewn in. So next time you give your iPod a knock it will be just fine!
