I was inspired to create this ipod case while staring at my cat, who was intently chasing the cursor on the computer screen.  I was reading about the Summer Yarns Contest when it hit me that I should make something that many, many people would find useful and cute.  So I put the goofy face of a cross-eyed cat, having fun chasing the cursor on a computer screen on a useful tote for the most popular gadget of today.

To begin, crochet fifteen chain stitches.  Connect each end so that your chain now forms a loop.








Step 3: Add Layers

Using the double stitch, add three layers, going around and around your loop.

Step 4: The Fourth Layer

For this layer, the fourth, you need to add an extra chain stitch after every double stitch for 1 layer.  This is what you'll do: double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch, double stitch, chain stitch.

I added that just to clear things up, you'll do the "double stitch, chain stitch," fifteen times, and remember not to attach your chain stitch to the ring, it will act as a filler, keep the bag from shrinking in case you skipped some loops, and add a nice pattern to the middle of your bag.

Step 5: The Last Five Layers

Next, using the double stitch, add five more layers.

Step 6: Finish The Bag

Securely close up the bottom of your bag lest you loose or break your Ipod.
