Notes

This is a worsted weight version of the bulky one that is already in my projects. This has a different st count, and 1 more tier.

UPDATE: Dec 12 - Finished, and I love the way it turned out! A Nice size bag.

Knitted from the bottom up, it has a circular bottom with increases at the sides. The top three tiers get progressively smaller, and the top is finished with an applied I-cord. The handles are not I-cord, but are cast on, connect, knit 3 rows, and bind off. Sewn to the top and knotted, they felt just like an I-cord does, but the cast-on and bind-off give a bit more stability.

NOTE: What looks like a light sea green, striped with the black, and one of the handles, is actually Aztec Turquoise, an intense color. It just didn’t want to photograph correctly.
