Hi, I’m new, just started knitting last month (took classes) and I’m working on my first pattern, a felted handbag.
I’ve done all the knitting part (circular), now putting the pieces together before felting. The pattern calls for “loose overcast stitch” to stitch together the bottom of the handbag. I understand that’s just a basic stitch that kind of looks like a coil, and I’m just wondering if it’s going to be strong enough for the bottom of a 12wx18h (finished size) purse. The pattern says to do that, so it must be, but I’m just nervous because it’s my first time and once it’s felted, I don’t think there’s much I can do after. Help???
