How to knit a fake pocket flap

In this DROPS video we show how to knit a fake pocket flap.

On our sample we knit over 24 sts. Knit next row from RS: K20, slip the last 16 sts that were knitted on a thread or a stitch holder for pocket flap, K4.
On next row cast on 16 new sts over sts on holder and continue in stockinette st. Later slip the 16 sts from thread/holder back on needle. Knit rib K2/P2 with 1 st in garter st and K 2 in each side (seen from RS).
When pocket flap measures 2-3 cm, loosely bind off with K over K and P over P. Sew pocket flap to piece with neat sts in each side. Sew pocket opening to bottom of pocket flap (where sts were put on a stitch holder) on the back of piece.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.
