iPod socks protect your iPod from scratches and insulates during cold weather. They're also a fun fashion statement! They are so quick and simple to knit from small amounts of left over yarn. Knit it as shown to resemble the commercially made iPod socks (at $29 a pop for 6) or use left over self-patterning sock yarn for a unique look.
Fits all iPods except iPod shuffle.

Keep your iPod warm this winter by knitting it a snug little cosy. This is the very first knitting pattern I have ever written so please forgive me for any mistakes. I wasn't too sure how it worked so I hope this all makes sense. Any comments and corrections are much appreciated.
