  1. Such a simple video but it definitely helps. I was looking over my first two traditional pockets and my interlocks are pretty good, but there are a few that I did the opposite way and it makes the pocket look a little weird. Next time I just have to remember which way I’m stringing my interlocks before I get them all tied down. Thanks for another awesome Traditional Thursday video.
