booga bag instructions
* Pick up and knit twisted 16 stitches along first edge of rectangle. There are 17 ridges, so you just pick up one stitch between each ridge.
* Pick up and knit 34 stitches along the bottom of your rectangle.
* Pick up 16 stitches along last edge as you did for the first edge.


This is confusing me. Does Amy have a video???? Those always help. Anyone know what I should be doing there? TIA ~Brooke

I asked a similar question here for another bag I was doing. Look at Amy's pick up stitches video.

Also, I didn't do the "and knit" part, just picked up the stitches until they were all on the needles and then began knitting in the round. That was the part that was really confusing to me.

You shouldn't change needles--you want to stay on circulars so that you pick up enough stitches to form a big circle. Then you start knitting in the round. I remember it was pretty tough picking up the first few stitches when I did it because you already have some stitches on the needles (I think your pattern is probably the same).

pick up and knit really just means pick up. for the booga bag, once you've got the flat bottom done, just pick a corner, stick your needle in, wrap the yarn around just like a knit stitch, and pull it through. Voila, one stitch picked up... now, just keep on going all the way around (go to the left of where you started) and you'll be done in no time. There have been LOTS of posts about the booga bag; some people had similar questions, so you might do a search on the site for those posts.
