iPhone Sock

Hey guys, I myself have an iPhone as do several of my friends. One of them never has a case on her phone and just tosses it in her purse. She is a great friend and very giving so I wanted to knit something for her. I ran accross a pattern for a Stipey iPhone sock on Ravelry. It uses a cast on method called "Magic Cast-On for Toe-Up Socks" that was in the Spring 2006 issue of Knitty. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATmagiccaston.html The patter for the iPhone sock I found for free on Ravelry, but there are some errors in it. (number of stitches and rib pattern instructions)

Anyhow, I knit one up last night. One of the "issues" I had with the pattern is that my iPhone definitely would not fit inside it. I'm going to make another tonight and increase the number of stitches cast-on. I kept going with the smaller size and discovered it will fit a friends iPod Nano perfectly.

This was my first attempt with the Magic Cast-On, first time circular knitting on DPN's, and using fingering weight yarn, and small needles. I think it went well though!

The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Hand-Painted Sock Yarn in the color called Cartoons. I like it a lot!

Really cute. Great job this being your first time with DPNs, I have personally never tried them. Cartoons has great colors.
Cat bordhi has an instructional video for the magic cast-on on you tube, very very good, and funny as hell, but it is for circular needles as far as I recall.
Looking forward to seeing your new version.

You had me at the yarn! I love the colors and how it looks once knitted! Good luck with the second one.

It's so cute! I think I have a fettish or something for little bags and pouches. It looks like a great thing to do with bits and pieces of left over sock yarn.

That's way cool! Does it use three dpns for the circular? Looks like you just knit across one side and then the other the way you've got it laid out in the early stage. That's interesting.
