Pocket Knitting - Part 1 / WCCKAL

DAY 14 / West Coast Cardigan KAL
I've been working away on my West Coast Cardigan for the knitalong and have made it to the pocket flaps. I've snapped a few photos for those who have reached this step too and are finding it hard to visualize.

. . .

PART 2 / BODY of the pattern begins after completing the yoke portion of the charts and takes you through the entire body of the cardigan. The first section, Chart A - Underarm to Pockets begins after the sleeves are separated from the body and includes the rows from the underarm to the top of the pocket opening. Pictured below is the cardigan completed up to Chart A (as seen from the back) and ready to begin Chart B.

Chart B - Left Pocket Flap works back and forth on the left pocket flap stitches only as seen in the image below.

Chart B - Right Pocket Flap works back and forth on the right pocket flap stitches only, see below.

Next we'll revisit the body stitches and move on to  Chart C - Body Stitches.

Are you knitting along? How is your West Coast Cardigan coming along? I'd love to see your projects, tag them #WCCKAL on Instagram and social media to be a part of the group. 

Are you in Vancouver? I'd love to see you and your WCC at Wet Coast Wools this Saturday 12-5!


If you are thinking of casting on your own WCC, feel free to post in the knit-along thread here — even though the official deadline has passed, it's a great way to share your project with other WCC knitters.

It's also become a wealth of information. I've compiled a list of all of the WCCKAL posts. Some of them break down the more involved portions of the pattern. They're a great resource if you're looking for more in depth instruction and visual tutorials!



  1. Thanks for these progress photos, that does help to visualize it. Just started on the body, so I should be to the flaps soon! Thanks Jane.

    1. I'm so glad the pics help! Excited to watch your progress!
