Bottom Of Bag Q
Posted: Mon Mar 19, 2007 12:07 pm Post subject:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok here I am finally at the bottom of my bag ... done all the decreasing and had help from Dangles for binding off ...... now am doing the bottom flap ...

Bind off round:
K10, BO 40 sts. (struggled but I managed).

Begin flat garter stitching knitting, knit 10 ridges (20 rows).
Loosely bind off these 20 sts.

Here is the bottom part of the bag taken from the RS .... I am thinking I have 9 rows on this side so 18 rows yet I have only put on 15 ... shouldn't it be square when I'm done?

Aren't you supposed to be knitting on 10 stitches? I count 20.

Yes, there is 20 .... the original count was 100 st .... then after all the knitting was done, it said to set up round
*K10, place blue marker, K30, place blue marker, K10, repeat from*
A red marker marked the beginning of my round ...

Then for the decrease:
*K10, slip marker, slip two st as if to know one at a time, insert LH needle into front of sts from L to R and knit these two sts together (ssk). Knit to 2 sts before next marker, K2tog, K10, then repeat from*. Continue until there are 10 sts between each marker.

Bind off round
K10, BO 40 sts.

So I knit my 10, then I bound off my 40 but somehow I had 20 left ... 10 to each side of my red (start of round) marker ....

Then it says "begin flat garter stitch knitting, knit 10 ridges (20 rows)
Loosely bind off these 20 sts.

Okay, 20 rows over 20 stitches in garter is going to make a square, not a rectangle. Rows and stitches in garter are roughly equivalent to each other.

Hmm .... funny about that .... it's 3 high by 4.5 long and on the loose side.
