- Working from the right hand side of your work with your garment facing upright, poke your knitting needle under the top arc of the first V stitch of your pocket (in this case an under-basted stitch). The top arc is the bar in between a V stitch which is directly above the baste line.
|The top arc of the V stitch to be picked up|
- Wrap your yarn around your needle to knit this arc as if it were a stitch on a left hand needle.
|One stitch knitted onto the needle|
- Pick up and knit the top arc of the next V stitch (in this case an over-basted stitch).
|Knitting through the second stitch|
- Repeat this process along your pocket base until you have picked up and knitted the number of stitches you need for your pocket.
Note: The row just knitted is the first RS (right side) row of the pocket.
