After thought pockets indeed

Pocket afterthought 
This is my right side after thought pocket.  I am working on the other side as we speak.  The decision to make a pocket after the fact was kind of difficult.  This pattern has a cable on every other row.  It is extremely difficult to just cut and pick up the stitches.  Honestly too difficult for me to think about the fact that I could lose the whole sweater pattern if I make a mistake.

I decided to use the same yarn and create a duplicate of the pattern, but in smaller needles.  I allowed for 3 stitches on each side of the pattern to be on reverse stockinette, like the pattern.  I slipped the first and the last stitch of every right side row.  I left a long enough tail to do a duplicate stitch at the bottom.  It was a job well done.

Thanks for stopping by.
