Lay out flat and block cover to size. You will be adding the anchor before you sew up the cover.

SURFACE CROCHET ANCHOR

Using the diagram (right) as a guide, surface crochet in Poppy yarn onto the RS of one side of the cover. If you want, trace the anchor and cut out to give you a guide as to where to place it. You will be inserting the hook in between the double crochet stitches on the cover, so the stitches will act as a guide for spacing your surface crochet stitches evenly.

Starting with yarn on WS of work, insert hook into required space, pick up yarn and draw through, holding on to the tail on the reverse so that it doesn't slip through. *Insert hook into next space and draw yarn through (2 loops on hook), draw 2nd loop through 1st loop to create the slip stitch; repeat from * until you have created your anchor.

When complete, cut yarn and draw yarn through to RS. Using a tapestry needle sew over the first ss worked for a seamless finish.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

SURFACE CROCHET EDGING

Now work a row of surface crochet around the top opening of the phone pocket on both opening edges about 1 row down, leaving tails so that you can neaten up when sides are stitched together.

MAKING UP

Gently steam over the piece, do not put iron onto the fabric as it will flatten the stitches too much.

With RS together, use mattress stitch to sew up sides for a neat finish.

Weave in ends, including the surface crochet at the top of the pocket.

Turn the cover the right side out and using a hook or knitting needle, gently push out the corners so they sit neatly. Gently steam over again.
