Hi everyone . .I just taught myself to knit a couple of months ago. Well, somewhat. And I have already started my first project. I am following a pattern for a summer tote bag from one of the Knit This Kits sold at Target.
Well, I have the body completed and I am SO stuck with the top of the bag. Could someone please help me? (I’m knitting on circulars by the way) :??
Here is the bag so far:
I just do NOT understand the rest of the directions at all!! Grrrr…
8.) Start binding off in I-cord as follows: Cast 3 stitches onto the right hand needle.
[color=red]OK, I DID THIS PART DOING THE BACKWARD LOOP CO AND IT WORKED WELL, BUT WHEN I TRIED TO FOLLOW ICORD DIRECTIONS I HAD A CORD HANGING OFF THE BAG, NOT ATTACHED TO IT[/color]
9.)Slip the 3 stitches just cast on over to the left hand needle.
[color=red] I WAS ABLE TO DO THIS PART LOL[/color]
10.) Knit 2 stitches, ssk (slip, slip, knit)
[color=red]HUH? DOES THIS POSSIBLY MEAN TO CHOOSE K2TOG OR SSK? I AM REALLY REALLY REALLY CONFUSED FROM THIS POINT ON[/color]
11.) Slip the 3 stitches just knit back over to the left hand needle.
12.) Repeat steps #10 & #11 until 3 stitches remain on needles.
13.)Bind off 3 stitches
I am hoping that once someone can help me with step 10 that I will be able to figure out the following steps.
