iPod in crochet dress (I made this!)

It took me the whole length of Pirates of the Caribbean - it's not perfect, but it does the job well, and it's sooo funky I promise you it looks a lot better than the Gucci iPod case

...and I'll be sell them for... half the Gucci price. Deal?

It didn't take you very long, just about 2 hours? Looks nice though.

Wow I hadn't even heard of that Gucci case...it looks hideous. It totally defeats the purpose of the iPod, STYLE.

Having said that nice crochet job, I like the white look

The Gucci case is really hideous. It looks like one of those Louis Vuitton fakes they used to sell in the street in the eighties

Oh, well.... More proof that money can't buy you taste.

Thanks to everyone who commented that they like the crocheted iPod

It started out just for fun, and because I didn't want to spend money on a case, besides I still haven't found one I really like.

I like the iPod as it is, I really don't like the cases that cover it up too much, but I also needed something to carry it around... I feared the crochet idea would come out looking terrible but it actually works ok. Just a bit too flower-child, maybe but it's sort of cute.

I guess I could insert a clip on the back but I still have to study that. Right now I use it with that ribbon as a lanyard, and hang it on my neck. It's actually rather comfortable. I have improve the whole design though, when I have more time. I knitted it around the iPod bit by bit, just made it all up as I went along by trial and error, so the proportions should be adjusted a bit better.

After I've perfected it, I'll open for business! Gucci, be very afraid...

- There's a Dior iPod case too - 350 euros

I agree the case is made of holey threads, but where does Batman come into it?

Nice. Looks sweet. Makes me want to take up crocheting. But I think it would take me all of the Star Wars Sexology[?] to finish one.

That's what he means by resurrection...

Nice case BTW... I wish I had skills and/or enough time to practice my hand skills...

Heh what a resurrection indeed! I'd already forgot about this! not that I'm complaining, always nice to get compliments

By the way, I made a few more tests and perfected my crochet-fu, came up with a bit better versions of that iPod jacket - without the ribbon, I did the lanyard in crochet too.

To answer jamesW135: no, of course it doesn't really protect the iPod (except maybe it does slightly protect the back from scratches). I just wanted something with a lanyard because I found keeping the iPod in a pocket a bit uncomfortable. And it was fun doing it.

And virus1: it really isn't a lot of work, except the first time I made it, cos you have to make your own pattern rather that follow a readymade one (like this hat, I just made that last week). I'm a bit faster now anyway. And I do it while watching tv or DVD's.


Tell you what, if anyone wants a crocheted iPod jacket similar to the one in the pictures, but in the improved less sloppy version, just drop me a message and I could make one for you and send it free, so you can try it out and tell me how it works for you - offer open to first five only, for now. And you'll have to be patient.

(Only problem is, I now no longer have that iPod, only a shuffle. But I can borrow one or use a card model with the same dimensions, I guess!)

I guess Lacero meant it as, you know, like a trilogy except it's six episodes so it's a sexology
