How to Finger Knit a Pocket Wrap

Working Time4 hrs
Servings: 1 wrap

Ingredients

  • 3 balls Bernat Alize Blanket EZ Loop Yarn

Instructions

  • Step 1. Place the tail end of your yarn to the right and the ball of yarn to the left. Count out 22 loops from right to left. This is your foundation row.
  • Rows 1 + 2: For row one, work from left to right, using a criss cross stitch. For row two, work from right to left, again using a criss cross stitch.
  • Rows 3 + 4: For row 3, work from left to right. Work one pair of criss cross stitches. Then work 20 knit stitches. End the row with one more pair of criss cross stitches. Work row 4 the same way, from right to left.
  • Repeat rows 3 + 4 until the wrap is almost as long as you'd like (60-74 inches), making sure the last row ends to the right. Then repeat rows 1 + 2.
  • Count out two additional loops on the working yarn and cut off the excess yarn. Clip open additional loops to create a tail. Bind off the top row, then use the tail to tie a knot and clip excess.
  • Create 2 pockets. Pockets should be 12 loops wide and 7 rows tall and worked with a knit stitch. Row 7 should end to the right. Count out 12 additional loops on the working yarn and cut off excess yarn. Clip open the 12 additional loops to create a long tail.
  • Center a pocket at each end of the wrap and pin. Try on wrap and adjust position of pockets if needed. Use long tail to attach the pockets to the wrap.
