Bag: Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 112 sts on circular needle size 7 mm with 1 thread Eskimo. Insert 1 Marking Thread (MT) at beg of round and 1 after 56 sts (to mark the sides). Work stocking st in the round until piece measures approx 16 cm. Remember the knitting tension! Now work next round as follows: * M.1, M.1, M.2, M.2 *, repeat from *-* 2 times = 56 sts on round. K 1 round and P 1 round. Now continue with 2 threads Eskimo. K 1 round and continue in moss st – see above. After approx 8 cm moss st, K 1 round, P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round. On next round keep the first 4 sts on needle, cast off the next 49 sts and keep the last 3 sts on needle = 7 sts for strap. Continue in moss st on the 7 sts until strap measures approx 48 cm. Cast off.
Assembly: Sew bag tog at bottom (make sure there is a MT each side). Sew the strap tog, edge to edge so it becomes round, but leave approx 5 cm towards the bag each side. Attach strap to the other side of bag.
