Knit and block the pocket you want to sew on. (The sample here is a 4-inch square.) Have ready a tapestry needle, straight pins, and yarn to sew the pocket.

1 Pin the pocket in place exactly where you want it to be and thread a tapestry needle with the appropriate yarn.

2 Insert the tapestry needle from back to front through both the knitting and the upper-right corner of the pocket. Loop the yarn around from front to back to front once more to reinforce the corner.

3 Sew on the pocket as shown, ending at the upper-left corner. Reinforce the corner as in step 2, ending with the needle on the WS.

4 Weave in the loose ends.

HOW TO PICK UP A PATCH POCKET

To pick up a patch pocket, you need straight pins, a tapestry needle, and yarn and needles to knit the pocket. You also need a knitting needle one or two sizes smaller than the one used to knit the garment; this is for picking up the pocket stitches.

1 Use pins to mark the outline of where you want the pocket to be.

Q Weave the smaller knitting needle under and over horizontally through the row of stitches where the base of the pocket will be.

3 Using the yarn you intend to knit the pocket with and the working knitting needle, purl across the picked-up stitches. (The first row is a WS row.)

4 Beginning with a knit row, work from here in stockinette stitch until the pocket is the length you want it to be.

5 Bind off loosely.

6 Pin the pocket sides and stitch them in place as shown.
