Capri Backsided Mobile Cover
Have you ever worn your top inside out by mistake and spent an entire day roaming out in that and to realize it much later in the day? oopsy! what now? You start to think should I change back to correct side or carry it, in the same way, assuming no one noticed. Well, when I face such scenario, I try to style it with a jacket and make sure I never take off my jacket.
But what if the similar incident happens while designing your product? I started making a mobile cover for a customer with enough spaces to carry meal coupons and cards along with a mobile phone and a buttoned loop to close the opening along with wristlet to hang it on the hand. While stitching one end of the cover, in order to hold the phone, I realized that I have sewed inside out. I liked the back side of the Single crochet stitch and decided to show it neatly and create a new design with good visuals.
The process is very simple. It is a series of Single Crochet stitch(SC) with changing yarns as per your choice. Sew and close one end on the correct side and turn the complete cover inside out!
I added a crocheted loop on one side of the mobile cover to tie wristlet band. Also, sewed button and loop on the cover, to close the opening.
R1: start with ch 34, join to the 1st chain with Slip Stitch (SL ST).
R2: Ch 1, single crochet (SC) around. Do not join the with Sl ST, instead continue with next row. Total 34 SC.
R3: Single crochet around with cafe yarn. Total 34 SC.
Continue R3 till the pouch measures 3″. Change the yarn to blue colour, continue R3 till the pouch measure 3″.
R4: Change the yarn to blue colour, continue R3 till the pouch measure 3″.
R1: Change the yarn to white and continue R3 for 1 row. Total 34 SC.
R2: Chain 3, SC from 1st stitch from the previous row. Total 34 SC, 3 Chain.
R3: SC around including 3 SC in the chain. Total 37 SC.
- The selection of the yarn is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
- Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
- In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose crochet hook smaller than recommended one to give a tighter and closer stitch.
- Height: 6.5″
- Width: 3″
The sizes can be altered based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.
- The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
- The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
- Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
- You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.
Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
