Here I am again, asking questions about felting.
I am about to knit a bag with wool yarn for felting. I have to knit it on straights and asked here previously about st st vs garter st. I will most probably knit it in garter.
I want the bag to have a bottom (flat bottom, not a continuing of the sides) as well as sides. How do I do that? Shall I knit to the length of one side, and then increase on each side so that when it comes to finishing, I’ll have a boxy bag? Or shall I just knit a long rectangle and fold it in half and seam it, and then shape it after felting, on an appropriately sized box?
I’ve put in a diagram to show what I mean. Is this how I should knit it in order to have a boxy bag?
