How to slip stitches onto a holder

Pockets are my favorite feature in a garment. Whether youre cold or nervous, pockets provide security you can bury your hands and still look and feel confident. Pockets are especially wonderful when you have made them yourself! There are all different shapes and techniques that can be used to make pockets. This weeks free pattern, Astor (a popular sweater originally published in booklet #299 Sundae™ & Berroco Peruvia® Quick), features deep pockets that are perfect for keeping your hands warm. To knit this pocket, you simply slip stitches onto a holder. Its an easy and useful technique that you will find yourself using over and over again. Check out our new how-to video for a demonstration.
