Because a picture says a thousand words, instead of trying to explain how everything is done, what we have done is take pictures at every step along the way so that you can follow along and try out making a pita pocket for the first time.
This head was strung up pretty quickly so that you could get the jist of it, but it takes serious work to make it perfect.
It’s not going to be perfect the first time – or the tenth!
The twists in the middle determine where your pocket will be. In this example it has a high pocket. If you want a lower pocket try a twist combination of 3-3-3-4-5-4-3 (top to bottom).
After you play with it for the first time, you’re going to have to tighten the string, just how it is.
To keep a traditional pocket in good condition it takes seriously work!
If it makes you feel better about how your first attempt went, know that I completely restrung this head twice before I had it the way I wanted it!
