1 ball of Patons 'Diploma Gold' 4 Ply in red (4286)
1 ball of Sirdar 'Funky Fur' in white (0512)
1 pair of 2.75mm knitting needles

CAVEAT: Knitting with 'Funky Fur' can take a little getting used to. Take it slowly and work in very good lighting conditions. It is really worth the effort for that soft and fluffy fringe.

  1. Using white 'Funky Fur', Cast on 48 sts using thumb method.
  2. Stocking stitch (knit 1 row, purl the next row) for 8 rows/2cm, finishing with a purl row.
  3. Change to the red yarn being very careful that the end of the 'Funky Fur' is securely fastened (it can be a bit slippery).
  4. Rib (knit purl purl, repeat) to the end of the row.
  5. Rib (knit knit purl, repeat) to the end of the row.
  6. Continue the rib for 35 rows/10cm.
  7. Cast-off.
  8. Fold in half and seam across the red bottom and all the way up the side, including the short side of the white section. Leave the top white edge open and slip your iPod snuggly inside.
