Assembly

Place the knitted panel with the reverse stockinette side down,  stockinette side up. Place the handle on the middle of the bind off edge (over the section that was knitted over 10 pegs). Fold the fabric over the handle. Using the yarn tail and tapestry needle, secure the handle in place. Repeat with the other handle bar, on the cast on edge.

Using the remaining yarn tail from the handles, seam the side of the bag (start approximately 1/2 inch down from the handle seam).

Weave ends in.

The reverse stockinette side is the “right side” of this bag.

Optional: Lining the bag is optional. Suggest to line it before assembly.
