Simple project: ipod sock

One of my first crochet projects was an ipod sock for my boyfriend. It's a great way to start your adventure with crocheting because it's so simple and yet effective.

How to crochet an ipod sock?
It really depends on you what kind of yarn you want to use. My personal favorite is Pure Wool DK from Rowan but you can use anything really. Just make sure it is not too bulky cause you'll end up with a monster of a sock.

All you need to do is to follow these 4 simple steps:
1. Make a chain and once it's long enough to encircle your ipod bind the two ends together by a slip stitch.
2. Keep crocheting around with single crochet, sticking the hook in the outer part of the chain loops. Once it's deep enough for your ipod, fasten off.
3. Using yarn needle saw the bottom together.
4. Turn the sock to the right side.
