VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS for knitting the pockets of the Saturday Morning Hoodie can be found here:

I joined the Ravelry knitalong group that is knitting the Lion Brand pattern known as the Saturday Morning Hoodie. It is a really great looking open front sweater with pockets and a hood that is unisex. If you have a Lion Brand free account, you can search for the pattern, or link to it HERE. The KAL group on Ravelry (another free account)  is HERE.

I ran into a huge confusing headspinning mess when it came to knitting the pockets. The pattern offers no real instructions for those of us who have never done pockets before and I was feeling pretty frustrated. I spent quite a bit of time going through the sparse number of photos available Ravelers had posted until I finally wrapped my brain around how it was supposed to be done. Once I got it, it was pretty easy, but up until that point, I felt like I needed some kind of code-breaking key to figure it out.

I offered help on the pockets to other Ravelers and several have messaged me asking for assistance. So, today I remembered my digital camera is capable of taking videos and I think a video is probably much more instructive than a long, in-depth letter accompanied by a bunch of photos. I am offering THIS VIDEO to anyone who is having trouble figuring out how to knit the pockets. If you have any trouble with that link, simply search on YouTube using the search terms “Saturday Morning Hoodie”. I tested it and it pulls right up.

I hope this video is helpful to at least a couple of other newbies like me. This is my first video, so forgive any errors. I would appreciate your feedback here and on the youtube site, if you don’t mind. If I got something wrong, please tell me. If you need more assistance, please just message me and I will try to help. Happy Knitting!!

I wanted more color in my Noro Scarf, so I calculated a simple graduated pattern. Moving from a double garter rib, all the way to 6 ribs of color. It is beautiful. I am wearing it with every possible coat or jacket I put on. So pretty and so soft.
