the pattern calls for cast on 30 stitches on a circular needle. Knit to the end and turn for eitht rows.
then knit the 30 stitches, Pick up and knit 5 stiches along the short end base. Place a stitch marker, then pick up and knit 30 stitches along the long side of base. Place a marker, Pick up and knit 5 stitches aalogn the other short. Ok question do I use the needles on the circular needle? or do I use an extra needle. The process is confusing to me. I am a beginner, I have been using the circular needle Now I want to make a bag, Can anyone help?
