0545 Pick a Pocket – Revised


by Charlene Shafer

Instructions are Row-by-Row.

Techniques can be used on any knitting machine.



Whatever your reason.. a plain sweater can be changed into a favorite sweater with the addition of a pocket to the design.

Pockets are great in sweaters, jackets, skirts, and slacks. There are so many other places to use a pocket, or at least the pocket technique. Runners can use small pockets in stocking caps, or socks to stash a key or a little cash. Wristbands are great for a small pocket. Large pockets are great use to store lap robes and small afghans. Let your imagination run wild. You will find many uses for pockets other than in garments.
