HANDLE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 6 sts on circular needle size 8 mm with light beige. Work as follows: * K 1, place yarn in front of piece (i.e. 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. Cast off when piece measures approx. 90 cm.
Knit another handle.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the bag tog at the bottom. Fasten one handle in each side of bag, approx. 9 cm in from the sides.

Wow, a bag named after me. Guess I'll have to give it a try. Pretty

Hei! Jeg lurer på hva som menes med "vanlig sentrifuge"? Hvor mange omdreininger er det?

DROPS Design 21.08.2015 kl. 10:08:

Hej Siri, Det er nok forskelligt fra maskine til maskine, men vi mener den centrifugering som hører til dit "normale" program på 40 grader. God fornøjelse!

I really like this bag, looks as though its fair isle and has been felted. Beautiful.
