iPod Sock

"Start as you mean to go on" is a phrase I first heard on Brenda Dayne's podcast Cast On. And this is kinda weird doing a first post. So I thought I'd start, well, as I mean to go on.

I'd like this to be where I share my design processes, as well as ramblings, so here goes with the first pattern (even if it is a little dinky one).

iPod Sock
  • Lion Brand Magic Stripes sock yarn

  • US size 4 straight needles (you'll need three)

  1. CO 30 stitches, using straight needles.

  2. Work 1x1 ribbing for 1/2 inch.

  3. Work stockinette for 3 1/2 inches, until the entire thing totals 4 inches.

  4. Divide them on two needles, and BO using the 3-needle BO method and right sides together. Seam up the remaining open side.

I made a really long I-cord for a strap, so I could wear it around my neck. This being a quickie project, the self-striping yarn was a hoot to use. It only took me about 2 hours to finish.
