I am an experienced knitter trying to help someone who is making the felted Tea Party purse in the current issue of Cast On magazine. Interestingly, I found someone in the forum who also had problems with this pattern. They asked what the e-wrap CO method was, and the response was "It's another name for backward loop cast on." Ingrid referred the knitter to the video, which I've also viewed. Unfortunately, I don't have the entire pattern in front of me, but here is what was sent to me via email in requesting help:
I-cord BO Around Top of the Bag:
drop right needle, using the E-wrap CO method, CO 3 stitches to one of the dpns. Slide these 3 st from dpn onto LH needle. Knit the first 2 stitches. Knit the 3rd st and a bag st (???) tog going throught the sts. Rep until you have BO all bag sts. BO sts and sew ends together.
She continues: "I've CO the 3 st onto a dpn, slide those onto the LH needle, and then I'm lost. Which needle (dpn or RH) do I use to knit the 2 stitches? The 3rd stitch and a bag stitch? How does this bind off? It seems as though at least one step is missing."
Now that I've viewed the video on the E-wrap CO method, I don't know what a bag stitch is. Can you help? Thanks.
