HflNG/ The final row in this chart is worked in one color. Don't try to carry yarn that has ended up on the left edge of your piece all the way across to the right edge to begin knitting with it there. Better to cut the end on the left edge to weave in later and start the color anew on the right edge where you need it.

Rows 1-4: Work in Color F. Rows 5-8: Work in Color D.

Rows 9-12: Work chart using Color H for background (MC) and Color E for motif (CC).

Rows 13-16: Work in Color C. Rows 17-20: Work in Color G.

Rows 21-24: Work chart using Color F for MC and Color A for CC. Rows 25-28: Work in Color D. Rows 29-32: Work in Color B.

Rows 33-36: Work chart using Color D for MC and Color C for CC. Rows 37-40: Work in Color F. Rows 41-44: Work in Color B.

Rows 45-48: Work chart using Color E for MC and Color H for CC.

To finish the piece, work 4 rows in garter stitch in Color D.

Make a second piece the same way.

At To avoid having to sew a bottom seam, do the knitterly thing and "pick up" yJJL stitches along the bottom edge to work the second piece. With the WS facing, ir^ll look at the cast-on edge and locate the overlapping strands. Starting at the right edge, go under the first cast-on strand (from WS to RS) with the tip of your needle, hook the yarn, and pull it through. (You can find more on picking up stitches in Chapter 16.) Do the next stitch on the cast-on edge the same way and continue to pull stitches through until the end of the row. After you've picked up 39 sts, turn your work and start the pattern at Row 1.

Finishing: Weave in loose ends and block gently with steam. If you picked up stitches to start the second piece, you need to seam the bag only along the sides, using the mattress stitch. Otherwise, graft or backstitch the bottom edge of the bag together, and then seam the sides. (See Chapter 16 for information on finishing techniques.)

Strap: Using Color A, cast on 4 stitches and work in St st for 44 inches or the desired length for the strap. Or work a cord on dpns using the I-cord technique explained in Chapter 9.
