I knit a square using seed stitch or garter stitch till it is the size I want then pick up stitches on all sides and knit a band of seed stitch or garter stitch for about 1 inch and then I start my pattern of Row 1. Knit 2 together , yarn over. Row 2. Knit all stitches. Knitting in the round, till the lace section is around 9-10 inches from where I picked up the stitches. Then I knit another band of seed stitch or garter stitch for another inch and then bind off. I locate where I want my handles and then I pick up about 10 stitches and knit seed stitch or garter stitch for 15-20 inches and then hand sew the end to the location I picked for it. Then I weave in all tails and I have a new shopping market bag. I only use cotton yarn for these type bags.
