So when you did your ruffled bag, it's like that. I worked the bottommost portion of the back panel, ending on a RS row, put it on a spare needle, then I began working the following section, knitted approximately 5 rows, ending on a RS row, then purled both sections together, wrong sides up, with the bottom layer (the longer one) on top of the layer (the shorter one) with the working yarn. Then using my working yarn, I *purl together a stitch from the first layer together with a stitch from the second layer*, repeating from *to*.
Can I use my words? Maybe. Please inform your DH we need a Use Your Words User Manual for Dummies Who Knit
I understand about the joining the layers together, np. What I'm wondering is, what's the small rectangle part? I looked at the link pics and thought you might be doing sleeves? Don't feel you need to make it perfectly clear to me, I'm challenged that way, and the pictures are something to look forward to.
