Who else has been challenged by shorthand knitting instruction?  I happily knit the back of the sweater fairly quickly… it was fun, a soothing meditation, relaxing.

The I started the front… ribbing section done… time to start the pockets, I knit for hours last night. When the last row was complete and it said to start knitting the stitches on the holder I freaked… no way is the “square” I knit going to do that!

Maybe the added stitches had to be to the right of the main front/stitch holder? Thinking of tearing out the “pocket” and figuring it out my way!!!! Been a while since I knit but these instructions are just too minimal…
