Knit-in, No-sew Pockets with Lily Chin
Women never have enough pockets if any at all. Furthermore, most knitters avoid seaming like the plague. Learn this innovative and revolutionary way of applying inset pockets to any garment or accessory as it is being worked. Work up a miniature sample in class. Plan placements perfectly beforehand. Never lose a cell phone or scrounge around for lipstick or a tissue ever again.
Bring yarns used in homework, appropriate needles, including circular and double-pointed needles of same size(s) used, and homework swatch. Also bring in one piece of graph paper, about 8 boxes per inch.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
With worsted or chunky wt yarn and appropriate needles, make swatch of 15 sts in garter stitch for about an inch, then work stockinette stitch for another inch ending ready to work a knit row, leave on needles. Have about 20 yards of yarn to work with plus another 10 yards of a separate ball in another color.
