Picking up stitches in the centre of the fabric

There are several different ways of creating pockets; sewing them on separately, holding some of the stitches on a holder, or picking up stitches from the middle of the fabric, as shown here.

  • Picking up stitches in the centre of the fabric - Step 1

    Step 1

    thread the tail of the yarn through the front of the fabric and secure on the WS. Insert the needle into the middle of the stitch to be picked up and under the top of that stitch.

  • Picking up stitches in the centre of the fabric - Step 2

    Step 2

    wrap the yarn around the needle and pull through this part of the stitch. This is your first picked up stitch.

  • Picking up stitches in the centre of the fabric - Step 3

    Step 3

    continue to pick up stitches in this way until you have the correct number. If you want your pocket to be stocking stitch, p the next row.
