Help with raspberry stitch
I am finally finishing my Florida Bag and the top pattern of k1p1k1, then p3tog is making me crazy. I can do the p3tog part okay, but the bobble...I don't think I'm doing it correctly. Also is it done on the back of the work or the front?

If you do a k, yo, k into one stitch, it's easier than doing the kpk into one stitch, and it ends up looking the same.

You work straight across on the front of the work and do the p3tog on the back.

As you get going, it gets easier because you can see where you increased the last time and know that this time you purl 3 tog.

I have a question, Jan, since now I'm wanting to cast on for this now Now NOW!

Do you think a cheap and simple cotton Peaches N Creme work for that bag? I have so many of those little balls rolling about...

The way this pattern is it's all on one row- k1, *[k1p1k1] in next stitch, p3tog, repeat from * k1. Wouldn't I still follow the pattern this way even if I change the bobble? I'm not sure where I'd do the p2tog on the back..

I have 118 stitches on the needles if that makes any difference.

Umm... maybe.

I've knit that it would work, but I think you'll get a nicer look with a better cotton. Shine has vivid colors and is really soft and kind of a shiny cotton..hence the name I guess. If you like the look of the dishcloth cotton you could use it though.

I really NEED to make that bag. Need might not be a strong enough word, but you get my drift. Thanks for posting it.

Is it hard to purl three together? Sometimes I have trouble with two, so I'm wondering if there is a secret to doing it right.

It's slower, but not hard. I knit loosely though so if you knit tight it will be harder.

Moxiemade, she got me too. My queue is getting VERY long.

LOVE the bag! Can't wait to see yours. Love her socks in the picture too! (I asked for that pattern)

Looking at the pattern I would think it's on the front. The cables are on an even row and the (k1p1k1) p3tog combo is on an even row, so I'd think it's on the front. If they are coming out on the back, try just pushing them through to the front, I've done that with bigger bobbles, it might work for this one too.

And Deb, if you start doing this and can't get the p3tog, you may be able to p1 and slip it back to the left needle and slip the next 2 stitches over it. I know it works with a single decrease... that's what I would try if I was having problems with it. Or maybe p2tog slip it back and slip the next one over that stitch...

That bag is darling. Question - I've never done a lining before. They mention sewing it in around the top. Do people use a sewing machine to do that? How would that happen with a knitted article? I would think it had to be hand-sewn, but they talk about a zig-zag stitch.
