Need help with Quinn purse
Let me thank you in advance.

Okay, here's the link to the pattern. http://www.cogknition.org/uploads/pa...2006.08.17.pdf

I'm on page 5, step 15. I understand how to graft the bag, what I don't understand is step 16.

On page 4, step 11 has me put the 2 purl sts on a holder, knit the round, then put the other 2 purl sts on another holder and finish knitting the row. I did this, skip to step 16...

Sew the live purl sts (one pair on each edge of the bag) to the inside of the bag.

What?

I've read through the rest of the pattern, which isn't much, and I don't see the point of this. I know I'm supposed to trust the pattern, but how do I sew these 4 sts to the inside of the bag??

And more importantly, why??

Have you read ahead to the end of the pattern? Maybe they're there to form a place to attach a ring or handle. Sorry I don't have time to open the pattern file and read it, I have to leave for work in a few minutes. Will check later if no one else can figure it out....

I bet it's to prevent the corners from sticking out too much. It has to be something simple like that.

As for knitting them to the inside, just run a piece of yarn through them and sew the ends of your yarn into the inside of the bag.

Originally I thought they might be helping to form a gusset at the bottom of the bag, but after looking at it again I think they might be to prevent "rabbit ears", similar what you might get when you graft the toes of socks.

______

ETA: I see Ingrid has the same thought!

Okay, I'll give it a try. I just didn't want to graft it together and then realize I needed to add those in there.

Thanks again for all of your help.
