 ipod Shuffle Tote
ipod Shuffle Tote
After finding a fabulous deal on 2 refurbished ipod Shuffles, I broke down and bought Mike and I our very first ipods. I've been using mine a lot and I often transfer it from purse to work to gym bag, etc ... I wanted to protect the ipod a little bit so I knitted a little tote for it!

I found some good complementary colors of scrap yarn and went to town. Since the ipod is only ~ 1.5" x 1", we're talking a small and quick piece of knitting.
I casted on enough stitches to result in about a 4" strip.
I worked in stockinette for about 2". This ends up being a 4" x 2" strip.
On a knit row I created some holes: Knit 1, * yarn over, knit 2 together; repeat from * to final stitch, knit 1
Then I did stockinette for about 2 more rows and binded off.
Fold the piece in half, wrong side out, so the holes line up across the top. Hand sew the sides and bottoms together. Then turn the tote right side out.
W/ some more leftover yarn I braided a small cord and weaved it through the holes.
Oh so simple ... but just what I needed!
