I used 000 needles so the windows would be tight to the body of the nano.


Co 32 (I used the magic cast-on (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATmagiccaston.html))
knit 5 rows
bind-off 6 stitches for window
next row dec. on each side to make (8 sts gone)
knit up to the 1/4 of an inch to end of window
increase one on each side of window
next row CO the missing 6, back in the round
knit 4 rows to edge of circle
bind-off 4 sts
p2tog on each side (6 sts gone)
k2tog on each side (8 sts gone)
purl/knit 9 rows
increase one on each side of circle
increase one on each side of circle again
next row CO the missing 4, back in the round
Knit 4 rows
4 rows of rib-k1,p1

At cast off the last 3 sts at back start a 3 st icord.
I made the icord 30”

When I connected the icord I continued with a icord bind off all around the edge for a nice bumper.


On my DH necklace (red/black) I picked up and did a icord bind off in the window for extra bumperness:)
