I feel like a complete dunce. Many of my pals have been busily making Booga bags, but I wanted to do a small project before potentially ruining a lot of yarn. Found this free pattern at the store for a small felted bag. Got the supplies and started.
1st, casting on 30 stitches onto a circular needle: Will these cast on stitches be going around the circle or staying on one needle?
Then you knit 4 rows, pick up 8 stitches along short side, 30 stitches along cast on edge and 8 stitches along other short side.
With only 4 knit rows on the base, I’m having issues picking up 8 stitches and it’s feels nearly impossible to pick up all those stitches all the way around. Am I just circle needle, bag making impaired? LOL
