After admiring my coworker's Lucy bag, I finally decided to attempt it. So far I've done good and am up to the part with the handles...and this is where I'm confused. The patter I have reads as such:
Working flat, set-up the handles as follows: Bo 4sts., k12, bo 5sts., k12, bo 8sts., k12, bo 5sts., k12, bo 4sts. (74sts.)
Join the yarn to the first set of 12sts., and work 50 rows in st.st.
Using Kitchener stitch, graft together the 12sts. just worked, and the next set of 12sts. from the set-up row, taking care not to twist the handle.
Join the yarn to the next set of 12sts. and work 102 rows in st.st.
Using Kitchener stitch, graft together the 12sts.
I did the first round of the Bo and k, and it just didn't look right. There was yarn carried across the Bo openings. I don't know if I need to Bo onto stitch holders. I would appreciate any help in clearing up my confusedness!
