    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.

    Well don’t get the beginner kit from Leisure Arts. I can’t even see the needle sizes and had to label them. I was pretty frustrated because of that.

    Sitting here crocheting raspberries, plums for play kitchen order to go out in April.
    Need to do up lemons, limes, bananas, oranges, grapes, cherries.
    Then will start on vegetable orders too.
    That order is cabbage that they can peel outer leaves off of, broccoli, asparagus, tomatoes, potatoes.
    Just so you know I love verigated yarn, just enough of each color to make up what I need for each order.
    So far got 6 orders of fruits and vegetables loveit. Using up scraps.
    Also making up dolls with scrappy yarn hair for Christmas.

    Do you use a pattern Jackie or just make up your own? I think I’d like to make some for the play kitchen that I have here for the grandkids.

    I take picture with my phone of the actual fruit, then look at a pattern from the 1960's and see what I can come up with.
    Got the pattern from thrift shop for a nickel.

    My Knitting and Crocheting (fun) class are knitting, crocheting Across America for Veterans this year as our group project for Christmas.
    My goal is to use up as much scrap balls of yarn that I can.(leftover from other projects).
    My afghans will be lap blanket size. 45 x 45 inches.
    Will be making special blankets for some of the forgotten veterans(women).
    Some ladies have requested shawls instead of blankets so will attempt that also.

    Does anyone here make those crocheted pot holders? A friend made two for me and I have lost touch with her. I would love to make more, they work better than just about any other pot holders I've ever used. She put a little loop on one corner of each one, duo color, white and pale blue. No heat goes through.
