Longer handles

Hi everyone
I’m knitting 100% cotton traditional string bags and I’m confident with my made up pattern. They have short handles ( BO15 - CO 15 on next row). I’d like to make long handles too. Would I just cast on loads more stitches to create a bigger gap?


That’s a good looking market bag!
Yes, casting on more sts will lengthen the handles.

Thanks salmonmac. That one was my first and is actually not very good lol.
I have loads now in all different colours and have got much better.
