Fitbit One Wristband - crochet version

Materials:
Size 4.0mm hook, or appropriate size depending on how loose your tension is
Small amount of worsted yarn (leftover scraps will do)
Yarn needle

Row 1: Chain 5, HDC  in second chain from the hook, only in the back loops. Complete 3 more HDC for a total of 4. Turn chain, and HDC 4 in the front loops. (This image is helpful)
Rows 2-10: Work in the round, 8 HDC stitches per round (do not join for each round).
At the end of row 10, sl into next two stitches (I found that the start of the round migrates and this was to make the seam of the pocket align with the edge of the band).  The pocket should measure about 2" and be longer than the Fitbit once inside. Try it out before continuing.
Begin Band:
Row 1: Ch 2, DC in same stitch, DC in next 3 stitches.  (2 chain stitches +4 DC)
Row 2: Ch2, turn, DC 4.
Repeat row 2 until the band is a snug fit on your wrist, the DC will stretch. For me, 11 rows of DC was perfect.
When you're done, leave a long tail for sewing, and sew the end of the band to the closed end of the pocket. The FitBit should fit snugly inside, so if you feel like it's too loose, go down a hook size. If it's too tight, go up a size. It should be snug, but not difficult to slip in, and I made it so that the pocket is longer than the Fitbit so that it won't slide out easily. I also find that you can wear the wristband with the opening on the inside, toward your wrist, but it's not absolutely necessary.
