The instructions (copyright Meema, and Debbie Stoller - go buy SnB, and all that jazz) say to: cast on 16 stiches, knit 44 rows and then place a marker. Then they say to purl 22 stitches across the long side of bag; pm; purl 16 along short side; pm; purl 22 more on the other long side; pm; purl another 16 along the remaining short side.
I'm assuming they mean purl right INTO the edge stitches that form the base of the bag - around the edges the 44 rows of garter stitch that you work in the first step.....and THEN you start working in rounds of stockinette....
This is just picking up stitches...yes? and you just start working the pattern in rounds once all those purls are in place?
