The handles are knitted I-cord, done separately. The pattern said to stitch them to the bag, but I just poked a little hole with a knitting needle and stuck them in then tied a knot behind to hold it. The knots are on the inside of the bag. Some people let them be on the outside as a design element. Before felting, each of the 4 handles was 2 feet long.
