Assembly:

Before you start assembling, now is a good time to block the pieces to try and get rid of any curling. Block and allow to dry.

With RS facing on both sections, place the pocket section 3 rows up from the bottom, directly underneath the button hole. Using the tail from the pocket section, stitch along the edges of the pocket piece and attach it to the body of the cozy. Fasten off on WS of work and weave in ends.

With WS facing (which means the pocket is now inside), use the long tail to join both sides together and to stitch up the bottom. For extra strength, you can stitch down the side, along the bottom and then back up again. Fasten off, and weave in ends.

Turn it the right way out, attach button and you’re ready to go! (I used a crocheted button, but any sort would do.)

To make it look extra smart you could add edging around the edge of the whole cozy before you assemble it, in a contrasting colour.

The yarn I used was just what I had available from my stash, but I think the whole item would look really good in a brightly coloured, variegated, or striping yarn.

The FO shown looks slightly different to how the pattern will turn out (the pocket is too small on the FO and my stitching up was a bit wonky at the bottom) – so will post pictures of a revised FO once I have re-crocheted the item.
