The Pattern is:


My question is, how is the trip around the bag created?

I can't see a reference to it at all in the pattern. It seems to be a much chunkier yarn, but I already have a yarn very similar to the one it suggests, and I don't want to buy more if I can help it.

Any help gratefully received!

I don't really understand the "work sc (along finished outside edge) through both pieces to join." either!

The trim around the bag is single crochet (sc). That's how the pieces are joined, rather than using a seaming method with a tapestry needle. I think that the 'trim' around the top edge is actually just the stockinette stitch curling over. Lionbrand has a good description of how to do single crochet here (http://learntocrochet.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/faq-search.cgi?store=/stores/eyarn&faqKey=113).

Hope that helps! xxx

Thanks for that!

I still stuck though - I've googled my fingers off and I can't find instructions on how to single crochet two pieces together.

Can anyone suggest anything?

I found a video for how to crochet a single chain (SC) here (http://www.hassdesign.com/CrochetStitchVideos/Single-Crochet/).

to join the 2 pieces together, you just have to lay the 2 pieces on top of each other and treat them as though they were one piece. work through 2 layers at the same time instead of just one.

I hope that helps!
