Technique: Fold up pocket

Monday, May 23rd's blog topic was:  Knitting:  proper pocket placement At the end of the post I wrote: I have other pocket tricks. My wish is show another to you soon. Let's hope that I will reach this goal.
Well, it wasn't soon, but it is today.

The fold up pocket is achieved by knitting the front longer than the back.

 And then by folding up the front to form a pocket.

How much longer should you knit?
Any where from four to six inches--depending on how deep you want the pocket to be.
This technique works best on hip length sweaters.
Next pocket:  Why write short stories
