In a previous post, I mentioned the baby cardigan I made for the newest addition to the family.
I applied a single patch pocket to the cardigan,and thought I would just briefly describe the technique I used to attach it.
I began the pocket by casting on the number of stitches needed with waste yarn, and then knit a row or 2 with waste yarn. I then worked the pocket leaving a long tail and laid it out for placement.
Using the long tail from the pocket, I grafted along the bottom edge of the pocket to a row of stitches in the cardigan. The waste yarn acts as a kind of indicator, so you only have to follow the stitches that are already there.
Then I gently tightened up the grafting so the new stitches matched old.
Til next time, happy knitting,
