  4. i made something similar to this by a basic knit stitch. It does not have the hole, but I love it because I know that my iPod will not get too cold when I’m out in winter listening to it.

  5. This is soooo coool . I wanted to make it but I didn’t understand a word you typed.

  6. These instructions are not clear. I get confused when attempting to make sense of the transfer of stitches between the “pocket” and “main part”. Some clarification is definitely needed.
