Finished Saturday Market Bag
Here is the link to my flickr page with my finished bag

http://www.flickr.com/photos/3018067...942392/detail/

I modified the pattern to knit it in the round. After Ingrid (Thanks again ) taught me about lifelines, it knit really fast and I really like the pattern. I was surprised it didn't stretch more after seeing others bags, but maybe when I fill it with heavier items. As it is, it was perfect for carrying things down to the beach! When I make another one I plan to wided the straps a little.

Lori what a cute bag! I can see using that for many purposes. I bet if it was lined with material you could use it as a knit bag or diaper bag too. Very cute!

That looks great! How did you adapt it for knitting in the round? Would it work to cast on 1/2 the stitches (or rather enough stitches for one side of the bag), then pick up one stitch out of each cast on stitch, then continue in the round?

Thanks. I am pleased with the bag. It is holding 4 big beach towels, and I think it will stretch a little taller if I put some heavier items in it. More bags in my future. I think a couple to leave in the car for quick shopping trips sounds about right!

Hey Steve,

I needed a bag to take to the beach last week, so I finally started a modified Saturday Market bag. I used a Turkish cast on and cast on 45 (total of 90 stitches). Then went into the lace pattern modified for knitting in the round:

Row 1: K1 (initial row only k2tog instead of K1 to give 89 stitches) * yo, sl1, k1, yo, psso; repeat from *

Row 2: K1 * drop yo from previous row, k2; repeat from *

Row 3: k2, repeat from * of Row 1, end k1

Row 4: * k2, drop yo from previous row; repeat from *, k3


I patterned finishing the straps after these modifications http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache...&client=safari

Looks harder than it was and I sure didn't miss the seaming!
