I am very much :?? right now.
I decided that I needed to use up some wool so wanted to make Satchel from knitty.
I am making the smaller version with a cast on of 38 sts to start.
So I did that part, and did the 7 rows stockinette part, but it's the picking up stitches that has me wondering HOW this is ever going to work.
You are supposed to pick up 6sts along side edge, 38 sts along cast on edge, and 6 sts up other edge. This is a mighty long, narrow bit to be picking up from and knitting in the round. It is impossible to knit that way. Really. I just don't get it.
I'll probably modify the pattern to suit myself anyways, as I always do, but I just don't get how these pass as do-able instructions.
