I am preparing to insert my first patch pockets and the pattern reads:
“When piece meas 6” insert pocket back as foll: Beg at center front, work 9 sts, sl next 24 st onto holder, work to end. Next row, work across and replace sl sts with pocket back."
Then it says nothing about what to do with the replaced stitches on the holder. Am I reading it wrong? The only other thing they say about finishing is to add the ribbing on the top of the pocket then “sew inside pocket and ribs down neatly”. This is the Ribbed Cardigan pattern in the book, “Knitting the New Classics” by Kristin Nicholas on page 16.
Anyhelp would be appreciated.
