ROUND 1: * K1, P1 *, repeat from *-*.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 112 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with off-white and work SEED ST – see above – for 5 cm / 2'' – P 1 round and put piece aside.

FLOUNCE 1: Cast on 168 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with jeans blue and P 1 round. Change to off-white and K 8 rounds. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and work next round as follows:
* K1, K2 tog *, repeat from *-* = 112 sts. P 1 round.

Place flounce 1 on the bottom part of bag and work the 2 pieces tog, i.e. K tog 1 st from each part all the way round = 112 sts. Continue in off-white seed st for 5 cm / 2'', put piece aside.

FLOUNCE 2: Like flounce 1 and now work first and second flounce tog as described under Joining Pieces. Continue in off-white seed st for 5 cm / 2'' – make sure to have the same no of rounds after flounce 2 as between flounce 1 and 2.

FLOUNCE 3: Like flounce 2.

FLOUNCE 4: Like flounce 2 but after joining flounce 4 to the rest of the bag P 1 round and then work next round as follows: * K2, K2 tog *, repeat from *-* = 84 sts. Continue in off-white seed st for 5 cm / 2'', K 1 round, P 1 round and bind off in K sts.

Place bag double and sew tog at bottom.

Cast on 6 sts with off-white on needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and work seed st for 35 cm / 13 3/4'', bind off. Make 2 straps and sew to each side of bag – approx 3 cm / 1 1/8'' in from each side - sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
