Getting Started:
  • Round counts are at the end of each row after the period, if the count has changed from the previous round. – {count here}
  • For this bag it is recommended that the unused color is carried on the inside of the bag, as this yarn tends to unravel easily, so less ends to weave in are a good thing!
  • To make bag wider add multiples of 3 to the cast on. Each multiple of 3 will add just over 1/2″
  • To make bag taller or shorter make more or less stripes. Each stripe is about 1″ tall.
