  1. i have been wanting to make a phone pocket thing, and i love this! but all of my knitting skills have gone out of the window – along with one of each pair of needles i have, can i ask if anyone knows a crochet alternative? i’m not as fond of the crochet one available.

  2. i did this in art class (at school) and it was a lot easier and it looked better

  3. Good!
