Rya is a technique and also a place in Sweden.

Rya is knitted in one piece, back and forth from the bottom up. The shoulders are then seamed (3-needle cast-off) and sleeves worked top down in rounds. The pockets are then sewn on fronts.

There are plenty of variations you can do with these pockets. To make rya loops is just one of them.
If you treat your pockets as an unpainted canvas you can add a lot of different patterns on it, e.g fair isle, stripes, bubbles, intarsia, slip st mosaics, texture, single color or why not rya loops in a different pattern.
Just use the basic pocket pattern and if needed adjust the sts according to your choice.
See also last 2 pictures; sample pockets in 2 different fair isle patterns.

There are 2 tutorial videos on my homepage how you sew rya loops:
