Feel free to make one for each shirt, and why not include the whole family? Additionally, I will guide you through accurately attaching the pocket to the shirt. It’s a granny square doesn’t mean it has to be perfectly square! We’ve added a few extra stitches, curving into a triangle, completing the pocket shape. So let’s start this tutorial!

How To Measure your pocket

Knowing the correct measurements for a granny square pocket will ensure a great fit and not look strange on the bag or clothing. First, find who the receiver is, whether it will belong to a little one or an adult, and select the size accordingly If you want to add a new feature.

If you plan to add a charm to an existing pocket, just take a measuring tape and note the width and height, and bottom corners lengths.

To help you with the standard sizes, I’ve provided three pocket sizes with various crochet hook sizes and yarn weights. Regardless of size, the pattern instructions and stitch count will remain uniform across all options to ensure this guide will be best for all.

Note: the crochet granny pocket won’t be the same size as the original measurement. Granny squares have a little stretch, so gently stretch and pin it before sewing it onto your garment.

Okay the fun is officially over (unless you love hand sewing).

Step 1 –

Pin your crochet pocket firmly into place.

Step 2 –

Thread your final round yarn colour through a needle (make sure your needle is strong and sharp) and tie a knot at the bottom.

Step Three

Starting from the inside, push the needle through from back to front and pull through until the knot locks into place. Backstitch your pocket into position, making sure you come out under the two loops of each stitch and return the same way. This is the tidiest way to sew your pocket on. Work your way around the pocket, removing pins as you go and fasten off the end. Hooray!!! Finished.
