    I saw this pattern and immediately was drawn to it, because of the possibilities of using something like this when going on a walk, or somewhere that carrying a purse or backpack is awkward. After I looked at this yesterday, I thought about making something similar out of leather. If I was to crochet this, I would not use this yarn.

    Reflective Wrist Pouch

    This little wrist pouch works up in no time, using Red Heart Reflective yarn, and it perfect for holding small things, such as cash or a house key during your morning or evening jog.

    That's cool. That little flap thing folds down and it buttons.
    What kind of yarn would you use, Weedy?

    I think you could use many kinds of yarn. My knitting friends in my crafting group like high end yarn, but some people use Red Heart, often viewed as low end yarn. I am more likely to use Red heart myself because the price of other yarn can be so high.

    I also think that you could use leftover yarn from other projects to make this. I don't think it would take half a skein, and maybe less than 1/4 skein.

    This wristlet would be great for runner and joggers, children, and others who need to carry a key and not lose it, even preppers.
