Pass all the stitches, one at a time, over the first stitch
Hi. I am making Nicki Epstine's Cool Ruffle Pod Bag from the book Block by Block. I've completed everything up to the last step before seaming it together. I'm sure this is a simple step but I'm confused...may be overthinking it...but the pattern says. "Pass all the stitches, one at a time, over the first stitch" next step says "Fasten Off" I'm not sure what it's telling me to do. If I slip the first stitch, then pass the next one over it, I'm no longer dealing with the first stitch. Confused! Can anyone tell me what I'm supposed to do here? This step is supposed to create a pod. (Round knitted circle) thanks for any help

In most cases, you have all the stitches on one needle. Slip stitch 2 over stitch one, then slip stitch 3 over stitch one, then stitch 4 over and so on. This will gather the stitches together, similar to the way threading the yarn tail on a tapestry needle and then threading the tapestry needle through all the sts. Is that the way this bag is supposed to look at this point? Are you knitting in the round?

Hi Salmonmac, no I'm using straight needles. I'm have 6 stitches on my left needle. The picture from raverly you included is the correct pod, the purse is different but the pod itself is the same. Your example of the tapestry needle gathering helps to clear it up some. I think what I'm having trouble with is how I keep the first stitch being the one I'm working with. So I'm not actually "knitting" these stitches am I, I am just passing them over?

Yes, exactly. Don't work the sts, just slip successive sts over stitch one. If that gathered look is correct for this point in the pattern, then you should be ok.
