I have just finished this in a beautiful Lily Sugar n Cream called Lava Lamp. Spring colors are very pretty. Very easy and quick instructions!

Hi, knit wit 2. I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. I have two options for you: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. 2. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance!

I am not sure about the instructions about where the inc occurred on Rw 6 it went from 24 sts. to 72 sts. In the 2nd rw. K2tog what is the "t/l" & also confused about the "cluster". It looks like a neat bag but I'm not sure about some of the directions....thanks

In row 6 you are making 3 stitches out of 1 stitch. It's knit1, purl 1, knit 1 all in 1 stitch, all the way across that row. 3 x 24 = 72 stitches now on needle at the end of row 6. In row 2, to make the "cluster" slip the first stitch, then knit the next 2 stitches together, but do not drop them off the left needle. Knit these same 2 stitches together again, through the back loops, then drop them off the left needle (2 stitches made, so at the end of this row, your stitch count will be the same). It takes some practice to do this cluster, so practice a bit, otherwise the stitches will be too tight (for me, anyway).

Look at 2nd row instructions. It explains how to make the cluster.

I am in the process of making this bag. What does this mean? 4th row: Sl1. K1. * Cluster 2tog. Rep from * to last 2 sts. K2. Thanks for you help. K in Ohio
