Pattern help--gusset on Brea Bag
I'm making the Brea bag from the Berroco free pattern section. I'm working the gusset and I don't understand this section:
Quote:
Inc Row (RS): Work 1, M1, work to last st, M1, work 1 10 sts. Work 7 rows even, then rep Inc Row, working incs into Moss St 12 sts. Mark beg and end of last row. Work even until piece above markers reaches from right top corner of bag back around outer edge to left top corner, end on WS. Mark beg and end of last row.
What do they mean by "mark beg and end of last row"? So I've got 12 stitches on my needles, for what purpose am I marking it? And then why would I "mark beg and end of last row" again? Do they just mean to put waste yarn or a lifeline or something on the row I just finished so I know where it is?

Put removeable stitch markers or safety pins on the first and last stitches of both rows. I think that's to mark where you'll pick up stitches or sew something there later on.

The markers are to match up those parts of the gusset to each top corner of the bag. If I recall, you then flip the excess gusset fabric on each side of the bag over to the inside of the bag create the loop that holds the handle in place.
