iPod Video Cozy ♥ 12 Days of DIY

Crocheted iPod Video Cozy
On the fifth day of 12 Days of DIY, I crocheted for you, an iPod video cozy! I wanted to make some sort of phone DIY which is when I got this idea to make this iPhone video cozy. This cozy was made to fit my iPhone 7 but if you are an intermediate crocheter then you can probably adjust the pattern to fit any iPhone.

My video iPod was one of my absolute favorite things back when I was in middle school I would use it all the time. It stored so much music and could even play music videos on the go. My iPod video held the music before I got into Kpop, such as emo bands and catchy pop music. Selling it was probably one of my biggest regrets but it barely worked anymore so if I still had it it would just be sitting in one of my junk drawers. I had the shiny black version (don't know want generation that was) but I always wanted a matte white iPod. Did anyone else had an iPod video?

Cozy:
- Ch 12
-  Sc 12 sts flo, sc 12 sts on the blo (basically sc around the chain). Total = 24 sts
- Sc 24 sts (x22 times). Total = 24 sts
Cut off, weave in loose ends

The first time I made this I didn't write down the pattern of the "screen" or the wheel so what the pattern I wrote down may look different from the cozy.

I crocheted the wheel and center button separately but if you want just one piece I would recommend changing the color of the center of the wheel to white if you don't feel like making the button.

Screen:
- Ch 11, sc 10 sts, turn. Total = 10 sts
- Ch 1, sc 10 sts (x10 times). Total = 10 sts
- Sc around the whole piece
Cut off, weave in ends

Wheel:
- Make a magic circle, sc 6 into a circle. Total = 6 sts
- 2 sc into each st (x6 times). Total = 12 sts
*at this point cc to pink if you don't want to make button.*
- 2 sc into each st (x12 times). Total = 24 sts
- Sc 24 sts. Total = 24 sts
Cut off, weave in ends

Center button:
- Make a magic circle, sc 6 into a circle. Total = 6 sts
- 2 sc into each st (x6 times). Total = 12 sts
Cut off, weave in ends

Assembly:
Sewing the center button to the wheel. Using a scrap of white yarn "embroider" a play, pause, back, and fast-forward buttons.

Align the screen and wheel to the correct places and sew down. Use sewing pins or lightly glue the pieces to keep them from moving around.
