How to work a pocket on a piece - worked top down

In this DROPS video we show how we work a pocket on a swatch that is knitted from top to bottom. We have already worked a few cm and start the video where the top of the pocket should be. Work X number of stitches with the main color (green), then knit X number of stitches with a left over yarn, (these stitches - light burgundy, should be removed afterwards). Put these stitches back on the left needle, then knit over these stitches with the main color, continue with stocking stitch to the specified length written in your pattern.

Now remove the stitches that were knit in the left over yarn. Put these stitches on 2 needles, use a smaller needle size than that is used if you want. Then knit these stitches together. Knit stocking stitches over these stitches to the same length as the rest of the swatch, optionally with X number of increase and edge stitches in the sides.

When both of them have the same length, knit these pieces together.
We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video.
