Need help with instructions please
Can someone please try to explain this to me? I am working on a Nintendo DS Lite sock and I am not sure I understand the end. I know how to do the stockinette slip stitch and the ribbing slip stitch but I don't understand the last 2 sentences, I have underlined below. Well I do understand the last one but not in relation to this project in particular. How does this form a "pocket"; I have no pocket. Also, is this what is considered double-stitching?

Continue working ribbing for one inch, until piece measures 5.75. Separate sides of the pocket by placing every other stitch onto stitch holder. BO all stitches and weave in ends.

Link to full (free) pattern here

I still need help but watching the double stich video helped me to understand how it forms a pocket by the double thickness and I can feel it now but my ribbing section won't seperate...but I haven't bound off any stitches yet because I am still not 100% on this.

Just BO the sts on the needle first, then BO the sts on the holder.

Hi!
what you do there is called double knitting on straight needles. Pretty neat, actually. I just came across it lately.
Give it a try: Every second stitch on a second needle... then you will have a pocket if you did it right.

your piece is just not an open pocket because the top is connected.

If you did everything right, you have a fabric that is stochinette st on both sides and not connected in the middle.

There is a thread in What'cha knitting! called "Some Small Projects" and there is discussion about this kind of knitting.

Edit: I was too late! But hopefully still helpful.

Thanks I think I just needed to "talk" through it and have someone confirm it. I believe I understand now and will try shortly.

Thanks for your quick posts! So helpful here.

Ok, I totally get that part now, thanks again for the advice. However, I can't seperate the pocket past the row where the ribbing starts so I obviously did something wrong when I got to that part (it looks really cute though). I guess I will be ripping the ribbing.

Hi!

When you start to knit the ribbing you can check as you go by simply pulling on the front and back pieces of the pouch and make sure they separate. If so, then keep going until you've finished the ribbing.

Then, when you slip your stitches onto the holding needles at the end the pocket will magically open. Then you can just bind off each individual (now separated) stitch.

- 0 - 0 - 0 - 0 - 0 - 0 - 0 (unseparated stitches, all on one needle)

- - - - - - - - - Back stitches separated out
Open pouch
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Front stitches separated out

Hope this helps!

Ruthie :o)

It is easy to make a mistake when starting the ribbing, I guess. (I have not even done it because it was not needed in any project to this date (but might soon be since I need to make a cellphone sock for a friend and have not decided if I want to knit in the round or on straight needles.).

The ribbing goes k1 p1 (the way it looks in the end but you have to do:

*k1 wyif sl1 p1 wyif sl1* (you still have to slip every second stitch with the yarn in front while working the stitches that you work as knit 1 purl 1).

I hope this helped!
