Felted Ipod Nano Cozy

Posted on April 27, 2008

Need a little cozy for your Ipod Nano? Well crochet yourself this quick and easy cozy project!

Free Pattern:
Crochet this cozy using about an ounce of 100% wool yarn with a “G” hook. Chain 13, single crochet (sc) in 2nd stitch from hook and in each stitch down to end of chain (12 sc). Working around the back side of chain, sc in each stitch to create a seamless cozy. Do not join. Continue working in rounds until your cozy measures 3-1/2″ long before felting (approx. 15 rounds.) Slip stitch into last few stitches of final round so your finished edge is smooth. Fasten off and weave under ends on the inside of your cozy. Finished size before felting was 3-1/2″ long by 3-1/4″ wide.

Place your completed cozy inside an old pillowcase and tie it closed with a knot. I felted my cozy 20 minutes on the hottest water I had with an old pair of jeans. Check your cozy after 8-10 minutes of agitation to make sure it hasn’t felted too much. Mine needed more so I put it back into the washer. After a total of 20 minutes, mine was perfect. I pulled it out and cold water rinsed it in my sink. Shape your cozy so it’s square and check to make sure the opening is wide enough to insert your Nano. If it’s a bit tight, just stretch the opening a little. Air dry and shape as it dries if needed.

My final felted cozy measures 2-3/4″ wide by 3-1/8″ long. This cozy is a great way to use up scraps of wool yarn you may have on hand. Just make sure you use 100% wool so your project felts properly.


Here is my cozy with the Ipod Nano inside. It’s soft and thick so it protects the Nano nicely. This frugal project is much better than a store bought cozy plus its handmade!

    This probably sounds stupid, but I love to crochet and don’t know the “lingo” in order to follow patterns. Is there a post or a website that explains what Sl, St, Hdc, etc… are?? I am clueless and without knowing, I can’t do any projects from patterns 🙁

    Please email me and let me know. Thanks.

    Thanks for sharing some patterns! I wish I could felt but I am allergic to wool. So, I just gaze upon the lovely creations from afar, lol.

    Speaking of cozies… have you ever tried to make cozies for pop cans or bottles out of plastic bags? Just wondering how you think that might work?

    I haven’t tried a cozy like that yet but I may. I did do a water bottle
    holder which is found here.

    Thanks so stopping by.
