I just finished my third repeat using the variation you posted and I'm already not looking forward to the seaming. I guess that's what I get for my impatience to start!

I think I've figured out how to avoid seaming.

I'm going to do a provisional cast on (turkish cast on) and then work it in the round. I really don't think it will be too bad at all. I'll knit the first whole round I think and then start the pattern, but i'll leave off the extra stitches. start with YO on the first row, and then for the second round make sure the stitches i'm dropping are the yarn over ones. 3rd round, i'll knit one before the YO...

I'm hoping it will work. If not, my backup plan is to again do the provisional cast on and then knit each half as though it were a separate piece. (following the pattern exactly except knitting the purl rows).

I tried some test pieces tonight and I think it's going to work. :crosses fingers:

Since you are knitting in the round you will have a tube shape. Are you planning on just seaming the bottom? The only way I have read about the bag done in the round, was to knit a rectangular bottom first and then pick up stitches and start knitting in the round.

I'm going to work it like the toes of socks (without the increases). Check out this turkish cast on tutorial. It'll look like i used kitchener stitch...

i hope that makes sense...

Count me in. I've had some balls of S&C in my stash for MONTHS now and I haven't figured out what to do with them.

So... when knitting in the round you are starting at the top of the bag? Am I understanding that correctly?

I started using a purty blue Cascade Sierra.... anyone see a reason why I can't just do 12 repeats and fold it in half so I only seam the sides? I just think it would look better that way.... then I can still pick up stitches as normal...
