If you are here, probably you have reached the last tricky part of the Tyche Hoodie… I will show you how to pick up stitches for the pocket and how to join the finished pocket to the body.
Picking up stitches for the pocket
You are going to use the existing stitches of the body, so you first you have to find the round that your pattern calls for as the starting point of the pocket.
Pick up stitches from the existing stitches of the body from the front right:
You can now knit the pocket as instructed in the pattern.
Joining pocket to body
Previously you stopped knitting the body 32(34,37,38,40) stitches before BOR marker in the last round. You now have to join the pocket there.
Hold the left hand needles of the pocket and the body of your work parallel and start to work the next round with the right hand needle of the body.
Knit the fist 2 stitches from the front needle and the first stitch from the back needle together through the front loop (you are knitting 3 stitches together):
From now on, knit 1 stitch from each needle together through the front loop at a time, repeat until you have 2 stitches left on your front needle.
Now you are going to knit 4 stitches together according to the following: knit the last 2 stitches from the front needle through the back loop and 2 stitches from the back needle through the front loop:
You can watch me doing the same thing on video, too:
