ipod/mobile phone hood
At last... I finally remade my ipod/mobile phone hoody, and this time remembered to write down the instructions as I went!

  • Step 1

    Using 8ply yarn (I think that its probably dk in the UK, and light worsted in the US?...but the tension doesn't really matter anyway, as "about right" is perfect for this hoody), and size 3.25mm knitting needles, cast on 22sts.
    Purl 3, place marker, p4, place marker, p8, place marker, p4, place marker, p3
    Knit row, increasing once into stitch before and after the markers
    Purl row
    Repeat the last 2 rows until there are 10 sts before the 1st marker, ending with a purl row
    Knit to 1st marker and place sleeve stitches on spare yarn, knit back section and place 2nd sleeve sts on yarn, finish row. There should now be 42 sts.
    Work in stocking stitch until body measures 10cm ending with a purl row.
    (K2tog, p1) across the whole row.
    Work in k1 p1 rib for 2cm before casting off the sts.
    Rejoin the yarn to the sleeve sts, and work in stocking st for 8cm.
    (K2tog, p1) across the whole row
    Work in k1 p1 rib for 2cm before casting off the sts.
    Hood - with right side facing, pick up 22 sts around neck edge, and stocking stitch for 7cm. Cast off
    Join hood seam.
    With right side facing and using novelty yarn, pick up 64 sts around front edge of jacket, and knit about 2 or 3 rows. Cast off.
    Sew sleeve seams. Sew the bottom of the jacket closed (to create the bag), and sew half way up the front opening.
    Finally, stitch the bottom of the sleeves to the body, to stop them from flopping around!
    I hope that all makes sense, but please let me know i
