For the Tote Front, Block 1 is worked first. Sts are then picked up across one edge of Block 1 to work Block 2. Additional blocks are worked by picking up sts across edges of previous blocks. A diagram is provided to illustrate the working order.
Instructions are for working the Front on straight needles. If preferred, you can work the Front back and forth in rows on the circular needle. If you decide to do this, keep in mind that you will still need a spare needle in order to work the 3-Needle Bind Off.
Tote Back is worked separately, back and forth in rows on circular needle.
Front and Back are sewed together around 3 sides, then sts are picked up for edging and straps.
