I'm kind of experimenting right now, but I'm hoping my current WIP on the needles comes out to be a purse for my niece. I'm almost halfway done (not including i-cord) and was wondering how I would go about making a flap for it. I was originally thinking about doing a buttonhole flap thing....but I don't really care if it buttons or not...it's for a 2 year old. But a flap would be really cute.
Do I just bind off half the stitches (there are 70 cast on my circ) and continue to knit until I have the desired length of the flap?
Or do I bind off everything and then pick up stitches? (which I've never done)
Any advice would be much appreciated!
