Patriotic Pocket Wrap Reviewed by Michele Obarow on 2010-12-20 *****
This was a fun project that I made for a dear friend. I used Vanna's Dusty Blue, about 12 ozs. and I think, either size J or K crochet hook. Added buttons (lrg.cream color) on the pockets. Friend asked about adding buttons on the "lapel" for closures. Will make more!

Used a size P hook as specified and the stitches turned out to be more loose than expected. Only did a total 9 rows of (B) [instead of 11] and 8 rows of (C) [instead of 10] in addition to (A) - checked the length after about 6 rows of each (B) and (C). I'm 5' 5" and you can see on my photo the length is good for me and the pockets are okay, but I could have placed them a little higher (and I don't have short arms). Also, modified the pockets to make them a little smaller and single crocheted them to the wrap. Although I have made a few items, I am still learning crochet. This was easy, but I had to be careful to make sure I crocheted in all the stitches as it is sometimes difficult for me to see them with Homespun. I used a stitch marker in the middle of the row to keep count. I made the wrap as a gift to my daughter-in-law. I'll be making a red, white, and blue version next (for me!).

Since this last posting, I've made my pocket wrap in red, white, and blue as follows:

*Followed directions as specified in the pattern [found on this web site] and used Lion Brand Homespun 375 Candy Apple, 302 Colonial, and 309 Deco. I stitched more loosely than the first pocket wrap I made [What was I thinking? I'm still learning.]. Therefore, I needed to adjust the positioning of the pockets and made them red, white and blue to blend in. It's warm when the house gets chilly, otherwise, I'll be using it for those patriotic holidays. I guess I need to make another wrap for everyday. :-)

*Because of the length, made less red and white stripes as I did in the first Pocket Wrap I made.

Patriotic Pocket Wrap Reviewed by Sandy Swaney on 2008-08-10 *****
I love this pattern!! I've made many of these pocket wraps and donate them to a local nursing home. Since I use yarn donated to me by others, I can't be picky about what kind it is therefore, I've had to modify the pattern a bit. Using a size K hook, I start with 50 hdc (52ch) and make them 150 rows long which is approx. 18" wide and 70" long. I normally make the end sections 26 rows long then the stripes either 6 or 10 rows wide depending on how many colors I have to work with. Some of the wraps I've made have only been two colors and others have had 5 or 6 colors in them, just depends on what yarn I have available that goes together and what mood I'm in at the time. For the pockets, I do 25 hdc (27ch) and make them each 15 rows long. I leave a pretty long tail when I'm finished so I have enough to sew the pocket onto the wrap. I pin the pocket onto the wrap using hair roller picks to keep it place while sewing. I just catch the edge of the stitches of the last row of the pocket so my stitches can hardly be seen and go through to the wrap itself and go through a stitch and come back up. When finished, I make sure to go back and forth both ways on both ends to ensure the tails don't work their way out. (I do make a knot at the beginning just to ensure they don't come out.) Sorry I don't have pictures to share but mine aren't in the proper format you require.

I don't know how the pockets were supposted to be attached, but I just slip stitched them on and it seems to work. This pattern is really easy and can also be adapted easily to different sizes. It's too long for a petite person, so I shortened it by making the blue part 8 inches long and using only 8 sets of stripes instead of 10. I also shortened the pockets to 6 inches long to make the proportions look right. Very easy, and I've only been crocheting for about a month. Have made 5 of these for use at our lake house to take on the pontoon boat on chilly evenings.
