This bag is designed with the purpose to learn Mochila techniques.
The whole bag will be worked in Back Loop Only.
It is important to have an even tension throughout the bag. We will need to give each stitch attention and Slow Down.
There are 3 ways we can make Mochila base. With 8 increases,10 increases and 12 increases. To make the base flat and firm, 8 increases is just not enough, so we will be making our base with 12 increases.
