Oval Pockets by Lee Meredith

Oval Pockets

November 2010
smaller bulky version, larger any-gauge version
This pattern is available from leethal.net for $5.00.

Knit up some pockets to add a sweater that’s in need! There’s is a smaller bulky weight version that uses only 20 yards for a pair of pockets, and a larger any-gauge version which includes notes for making adjustments, and examples in worsted and bulky weights.

The oval pockets are constructed with short rows, worked in the round, with circle hole openings. The any-gauge version is an intermediate level pattern, for knitters with some short rows experience - you’ll need to pay attention to where turns and decreases happen as you knit. (The smaller version is easier since the numbers are all written out for you.)

This pattern is part of the November leethal quick knits club mini-ebook, which also includes a pattern for a Cabled Cowl Maker, a tutorial for a wool mug sleeve, and other crafty goodness.
