Pattern description from Bag Style: “Frustrated by the inconvenience of carrying her iPod around in her hand, Ann Budd set out to knit a portable iPod case. She knitted the pocket in the round from the base up, working simple two-stitch cables (that don’t require a cable needle) on the front and a single rib on the back to make the packet hug the iPod snugly. When seaming the base, Ann left a small hole to accommodate the earphone jack. She finished the case off with a cabled knit-cord neck strap that extends along the sides of the pocket. There’s even a handy little strap across the back of the pocket to corral the earphone cables.”
