My working partnership with Yarnspirations challenged me to come up with a pocket wrap. My team members, Anita and Wendy, were in the finishing stages of a pocket wrap that is coming out shortly. Each of us has a different approach.
The Crochet Hooded Pocket Wrap is my version of this challenge. I had design goals and literally designed and made this in less than 24 hours!
- Add a hood to the concept to keep the Nova Scotian Wind from chilling the back of my neck and head.
- Design it so the hood works so it can be rested down and still sit comfortably on the body.
- Add my signature love for texture. The arrow stitching and moss stitch are used.
- Design pockets big enough but also are not square so things inside don't easily fall out. There are 8 sides to the pocket. 7 of the sides are sewn to the wrap so the pockets are wider inside than the opening.
- Use chunky weight yarn because I am short of time and wanted to have the additional warmth with level 5 yarn.
The project is blocked at the end for best shaping and presentation.

- You could add buttons to the front of the wrap for closure.
- The pattern is adjustable using stitch multiple of 4 + 3 when you begin. The math is shared with you in the pattern. I don't have sizes for adults or kids without the hood but the stitch multiples make it possible for your to wing it. The math for the moss stitch is 11 sts, 2 sts in next for the increase. To reduce back, 11 sts, sc2tog over next two. You want to ensure you hit back to the multiple 4 with one additional stitch for each edge.
