Ipod extension cable with CAT 5 cable??

I would like to make an Ipod extension cable (aprox. 3') with a male on one end and a female port on the other end.  Is it possible to use  CAT5 cable?  If not what wire should  be used.and where can I buy it in such a small quantity.  Also any soldering advice or "things to look for" would be appreciated.

I can't answer your question directly, but I can tell you that you should check out the electronics section of your local thrift stores for cables. I see all kinds of cables for $1-$2. If nothing else you might find two cables with the connectors you need and you can cut them in two and just splice them together.
