Knit a bag in the round
Hello,

I am an inexperienced knitter and tried looking up other knitting in the round questions but did not find a solution.

I am trying to knit a bag, out of old plastic bags. I've started knitting on one of the circular needles, with a plastic cord in between. I have no idea how many stitches I cast on! I just filled up the needle.

I've read several websites that say you can knit a bag in the round, but I am unclear about how to make the bottom of the bag. As far as I know, knitting in the round is just a tube. I know you can somehow pick up the stitches from the "long" and "short" side of the bottom, but its a circle, and I have no idea what that means. It doesn't seem feasible.

I've tried looking up patterns and tutorials but I just don't understand them. I thought maybe a real person explaining it would help me.

Can anyone give me some advice on what to do?? Thank you sooo much in advance!

Monica
