Yes, I did do it with circs. I used them as dpns, picked up 12, decreased to 6, knit 6, slide, pull tight, knit 6, slide....

Here are pics of the front and back of the strap attachment.

Summer String Bag
That's a nice bag Carol, looks perfect! I like the sides. It's wool?
Very sturdy looking. I don't know why, I can't imagine I cord with a circular but I guess if I tried it it would come. Seems like the cord would be a nuisance.

Anyhoo, I finally finished my bag yesterday and I love it! It's a Summer bag for sure. I was doing that at the bottom of the straps but ripped it out and just did I cord right from the start.

Here it is!

Nice - I love these kind of bags!

When I knit with circs where it calls for straights or dpns, I just ignore the cord.

My bag is made from Crystal Palace Deco-ribbon. I was originally going to do this pattern, but it changed per the recipient's request (Mom asked nicely!).

Thats an interesting bag Carol.... the way they do the cord sounds super easy and quick. Think I'm going to try that some time! It would make an elegant bag too, esp if there were some sparkle in the yarn.

I would guess that if you wanted to Icord on circs, you would just slide it to the other end the same as you do with DPNs?

Yes! I've seen a couple purses now where the knitter has carried along another ribbon or other sparkly yarn with the CP Deco and it looks great! I happen to have two balls of the Deco and one ball of shiny variegated ribbon that I was going to use as a stripe in the middle or top - I just am trying to decide what shape to make it. I kind of like this one.

How much yarn did your white bag take?

Yes, Kelly, exactly as with DPNs.
