    Thank you for providing this information; your drawings are fantastic and have helped me. I am a leftie knitter and this was wonderful/easy to understand.

    I think I’m going to add a kangaroo pocket to a sweater I’m knitting. I measured carefully and thought I would be short a ball of yarn, but I actually have almost a full ball leftover. It might be a very small kangaroo pouch, but hey, it’ll keep my belly extra warm. Thanks for this article, I think picking up stitches for the bottom of the pocket might be my best bet. I don’t think I’ll be holding a ton of things in it so it doesn’t need to be particularly strong.

    This was such an informative article. Very well explained and the photos and diagrams made it super clear. Now I just want to knit sweaters with pockets to try all these ways. Thank you.

    Wow, thank you!! What a valuable resource you have provided for us.

    You are very much like the hero Elizaberh Zimmermann. She, much like Tin Can Knits deconstructed knitting and gave me the confidence to not be fearful and try different things.

    So many of my knits NEED pockets Lol.

    Thank you! ❤
