I’m working on the “Pocket Square” from the Tech Square Afghan, and have already knitted up the Kangaroo Square front portion of the pocket. The original stitches for the pocket were 36 and after some decreasing are now 24 and pattern asked to knit 6 inches, done. Placed the 24 stitches on a holder, turned the square over so now I’m looking at the back of the square.
Here’s where I’m getting confused, there are stitches left on both sides, that weren’t knit while knitting up the front of the kangaroo pocket.
[B]Turn the square over, and working into the last ridge of the garter stitch lower border, join yarn and knit up 1 stitch behind each of the 36 pocket front stitches. Knit 10 rows in stockinette on these 36 stitches, insert these 36 stitches between the stitches left behind when making the pocket front.[/B]
So, the garter stitch lower border is the border used for the kangaroo pocket, it has a 3 stitch garter on both sides.
