Using one strand of Cascade 220, I began at the center and created a circle of about 8 inches in circumference. Then I knit in the front and back of each stitch around. Then I carefully double knit up the sides , I placed six markers around and crossed my yarns at the markers to make the six pockets. Special care needs to be taken so the pockets remain open. I changed the colors of the yarn where ever it felt good to me. I knit vertically about six inches and then did an I-cord bind off.
