"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

Picking up so many stitches on such a narrow band is too fussy, so I used a provisional cast on, did not bind off the last row and only picked the 15 stitches at the sides to join in the round to continue the bag from the base. It worked out well, made the bag more uniform for joining in the round and it seems much more stable at the bottom.

Is the slip 2 knit wise or purl wise? Also do you slip the 2 stitches together or separately.
Mar 29, 2017
Slipped stitches in knitting are always done purlwise, unless specified in the pattern and slipped separately, if you don't you may find the yarn becomes tight and can cause your project to pucker when it shouldn't. Hope this helps someone.

This is a nice, roomy bag with an interesting but simple repeat stitch. Its great practice for learning how to carry your yarns for work in colors. You knit the bottom of the bag first, then pick up stitches all the way around to complete the rest of it. This will give you a nice flat base so the bag will sit on a table or the floor without tipping over.
