I knit a cozy for my nano, I didn't use a pattern. Just made it up as I went.

I used bulky silk yarn, cast on 7 st (about the width of a nano, adjust depending on yarn/gauge) on #7 needles and knit garter stitch until it was long enough to fold over itself and fit the nano inside. Then cast off, fold it onto itself, stitch up the sides and turn it right side out. It ends up being the same shape as the little pleather case it comes with, only thicker and more protective.

But, honestly don't waste your time, this thing...
http://matias.ca/ipodarmor/index4.php

is way better than anything knittable and it's not to expensive. I have one and it is GREAT. it's only a hair larger than the nano itself, it's practically indestructible and provides serious protection without blocking any of the controls.

I have the iSkin Duo case for when I'm going out. It's a great case. I have it in Blush Rush. It even glows in the dark.

mrtea, too funny! i ordered that on ebay same time i ordered the nano! glad to read good reviews! I just wanted the felted thing for fun really, virtually useless.

I LOVE the Iskin Duo, but I am just so not willing to pay that at the moment. I read the nanos nick pretty easily, so I went with something fast and cheap. I near had a coronary just buying the nano even getting $100 off on it. i got a silicone skin and that metal armor plus screen protectors and an armband for less than half of what the Duo goes for on ebay. of course, no cute little apple logo, but hey, rubber is rubber. Will I buy a Duo eventually anyway just because it's so freakin cute? Probably. Acid groove and arctic frost are both totally hot like fiyah.

I knitted KP's felted iPod holder last summer or fall. It's for the iPod *MINI* which is what my daughter has. I like it because you can wear it around your neck and be hands-free. I believe the width of the pattern should be easily adjustable for other iPod sizes.

That's so cool. I mean we're both knitter's, we both have nanos, and we both have iSkin Duos. We are too cool.

I'm reviving this thread to let ya'll know that there is a felted iPod nano cozy that's worn around the neck in the new Knit.1 magazine. The Spring 2006 will be out on newsstands on Feb. 14.

I adapted this pattern from AlterKnits (a GREAT book) - it was originally for a PDA but it was easy to resize for an iPod. I love the little handle attached at only one end - I can slip it through a belt loop and button it shut. (*note WIP sweater for DH at lower right corner :D )
