my point protector popped off and with it, my EOR marker, but i didn't realize it until i was working on the same round for 20 minutes and said to myself, where the bleep is my marker?!
the pattern is here Satchel
but in essence, you work 13 rows of stockinette stitch across 52 stitches. At the end of the 13th row, which is a K row, you do not turn, pick up and K 12 stitches across edge, then 52 along the CO edge, then 12 along the other side, which brings you to the opposite end of the K row last completed, starting in the round. So, the beginning of my round, then, will be the first NOT picked up column but on which side? through drawing myself diagrams, i am coming up with the corner diagonal from the CO tail. (Since I used the long-tail cast-on, I started with a P row, so when starting K rows, the CO tail would be to my left. That means when I finished picking up stitches all the way around and starting K in the round, the tail would have been at the bottom left corner and I would have started the round at the top right?) I am so lost here. I can't count the V's around because of the picking up... unless i could count the V's on the opposite sides of the not picked up rows? Someone please help me!
