Inserting a pocket

John deLongpre

This technique is the same as that used for inserting a heel. Following the pattern directions, you knit some of the stitches with waste yarn to mark the top of the pocket.

Carefully remove the waste yarn and put the loops above and below onto double-point needles.

If you're worried about dropping stitches, you can pick up the loops as you go. I like to remove all the waste yarn and then go back and pick up the stitches.

The loops on the bottom needle will be used to finish off the top of the pocket front. For "My Favorite Cardigan," an attached I-cord is worked across these loops.
