Pockets:

There are 3 pockets in various sizes to make up this remote holder.  All three pockets are made with SC stitches, this creates a grid type fabric.  The holes around each SC stitch will be where you complete the back stitching to make the sashiko designs.  For each pocket I have provided a grid, each grid space is equal to one SC stitch, you will use this grid to back-stitch the design on the pockets.

If you need help with how the backstitching technique works on crochet work check out my quick tip here.  As always feel free to email me at funkifybers@gmail.com if you need any help with this.  I hope you enjoy, I found once I got going it was easy to watch a favorite show while stitching these pockets.
