Description: Pockets are found in most garments but rarely in sweaters. Why not add a pocket or two to your knitted garments? In class, we will explore a variety of pocket shapes, styles, how to add them to finished garments, and how to add them while you are knitting your garment.

Snip and ravel afterthought pockets, added-stitch contiguous pockets, and integrated afterthought pockets are some of the methods you will learn to add pocket of any size, shape, or style.
