I've been knitting away at the Sophi bag from Magknits (http://www.magknits.com/warm04/patterns/sophie.htm
) and figured i should have a look at the pattern because i was getting near the handle bit. I was also a bit surprised because, i remembered the pattern had said it should take exactly one skein of yarn, and i hadnt even started the strap yet and was almost running out!
Well i looked at the pattern and realised wher i had gone wrong - for one the pattern says to stop on row 50 and for some reason i was know on row 65 (
) then i realised that i had miss read the instructions and that instead of decreasing after every marker as i had been (on various rows) i should have decreased before AND after each marker.
I should get to row 50 and have 70 stitches on my needles ready to bind off ready for the strap, instead i'm on row 65 and have over 80 stitches
I was knitting the bag to send to my mum in australia for mothers day (16th may), so realy don't have time to frog back all that way. ido have another skein of wool if i need it though
What should i do!!
