Here’s my cabled iPod case pattern, this one is mine feel free to use it as gifts or for yourself basically personal use only no selling my case.
Now this pattern is pretty simple you need to know how to cable and how to do a Kitchener stitch. If you don’t know how don’t worry I’m going to link how to videos, after a few posts I realized I’m doing what most people did and not saying how to and what abbreviations mean. I always hated trying to figure something out on my own and get confused for the first few times.
It’s easy to alter if you need to, I use medium 4 yarn but I’m sure it’ll work fine with other yarn if you want to try. But I will say if you use smaller yarn make sure it’s stretchy enough while you’re working, it’s always better to use yarn you don’t care for first.
Like I say many times if you ever get stuck just tell me and I’ll help with whatever gives you problems. But it’s simple enough that there shouldn’t be any issues.

Row 16 repeat cable row
Repeat Rows 9-16 until you have 40 rows total (that includes rib)
You should have 5 cables total.
To close the bottom do a Kitchener stitch, make sure you leave a long enough tail when you cut the yarn; it’s always better to have too much than not enough.
Weave/Darn in the ends.
It might seem a little small but it’s a cozy/sock so it’ll stretch out mine which is the one in the picture stretched out and now fits perfect. So like I said before, personal use only and if you have any issues let me know, the links for videos are below and happy knitting!
