BAG:
The bag is worked in the round on circular needle, top down, and sewn tog at the bottom.
Cast on 90 sts on circular needle size 9 mm / US 13 with lime. Insert a marker in each side (= 45 sts between markers). Work in stockinette st in the round.

Sew bag tog at the bottom – edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

HANDLE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 6 sts on circular needle size 9 mm / US 13 with lime. Work as follows: * K 1, place yarn in front of piece (towards you), slip 1 st as if to P, place yarn behind piece (from you) *, repeat from *-* the rest of row. Turn piece and repeat from *-* upwards on all rows. Working like this makes a handle worked seemingly in the round.

Fasten one handle in each side of bag, approx. 6 cm / 2½'' in from the sides.
