Modified Turkish String Bag


My second string bag.

I modified the pattern a bit for this one... cast on 10 instead of 15 and then 20 rows of garter instead of 32. Picked up 10 stitches per side for a total of 40. Increased to 80 on the first row, the body I did as written. On the decrease row I k2tog all the way around, instead of on half of it. Then 8 rows of garter like the pattern, then k10, bind off 10, k10, bind off 10, and the strap as written.

It's basically just a little bit smaller than the written pattern, and the top is more of a round shape. This one works a lot better when I'm shopping, it stays around whatever I put in it instead of collapsing around the outside.

The Stats...
