I have had a great week knitting outside in the sunshine. As I live in the west of Ireland where we usually get LOTs of rain, this has been a delight.
I am working on a pattern from this site to make a Linen Stich Shoulder Tote bag for my daughter . I am loving Linen stich but am a bit confused by the pattern.
At the end of the front, I made 2 decreases to create the 'Hem' but the pattern says to make-up by attaching the front and back at the Cast Ons. I had thought the 'Hem' would form the base of the bag but this means it is actually the top of the bag's front (where it opens). Do you think that is correct???
Also - should I handwash and/or iron my knitting before making up?
All opinions very much welcomed
