Pocket Knitting - Part 3 / WCCKAL

In my last pocket knitting post I picked up the 4 overlap stitches for each pocket flap and resumed working the body stitches to complete Chart C – Body Stitches, this is what my sweater looked like (you can see that the body has caught up to the pocket flaps):

 Reattach Pocket Flaps to Body


This next row is a right side row and we begin by placing the left pocket flap stitches onto a spare needle and working from Chart D, knit across to the last 4 pocket flap stitches:

Because there are 4 overlapped stitches at the opening of each pocket flap, we will need to knit these stitches together with 4 stitches of the body (steps 1–4 below):

Now all that is left to do is finish up the body charts and knit the ribbed hem!! This is the home stretch for the body!

TIP: I've found it really helpful (especially with the custom charts) to have markers around the center body stitch – it's extra assurance that I don't go to far when I'm knitting on autopilot.
