Originally made for the second-generation iPod Nano, it also works for the latest generation. As long as Steve Jobs makes them thin and narrow, then it should work.
Works best with fine nylon/acrylic/cotton. This particular one is in Lustre from Wilkinsons -- just 99p for one skein!
- Fingering/DK yarn of your choice
- 2.75mm double-pointed needles

3cm2 = 9 stitches x 11 rows
Cast on 29 stitches, leaving a tail of around 15cm.
Distribute across needles, place marker in, and join for knitting in the round.
Knit 35 rows (approximately 9cm). Occasionally take your Nano and slip it in to see how far you have to go.
Row 36: Knit 7, cast off 14, then knit the remaining 8. Slip the remaining 15 stitches onto a single needle and continue with straight knitting from now on.

Row 52: Cast off with a tail of around 10cm.
Use the cast-off tail to make a loop, knotting it tightly to prevent it from slipping. Weave tail into the rest of the flap and trim if necessary.
Use the cast-on tail to sew up the bottom, leaving an approximate 1.5cm hole on the right side for your headphones.
Fold over the flap and mark where the loop sits comfortably on the cover. Sew your button there.
Put your Nano in, button it up, and enjoy!
