*Using yarn need and light brown yarn to add "seams": Weave in and out of each stitch and row end arnd the outside of the pockets. Weave in and out of each st arnd rnd 10. Weave in and out of each st of rnd 2, working under the line of front loops created from working in BLO. Weave in and out of rnds 10 to 2 working as close to a straight vertical line as possible. NOTE: All "seams" must be added loosely or it won't stretch over a cup. I added mine while the sleeve was on the cup to make sure it didn't pull.
*Attach pockets, one on each side of the vertical "seam" line, leaving at least on st space between the pocket and "seam" (or at least 3 sts between each pocket).
*Hide all strings.
