Eunny shows knitters’ versions of The Squatty Sidekick, a knitted and felted bag originally designed by Amanda Berka. Sponsored by Fiesta Yarns
@ Suz-Danna - you're only slipping the first stitch on each row not the first and last stitch. If you do this then you will have 30 slipped stitches on each edge. Also, you will already have 15 stitches on your needle before picking up any stitches so 15 + 30 + 30 + 15 = 90.
Hope this helps!
I am an experienced knitter, but following the instructions for this bag is confusing me. The bottom of bag says to CO 15 stitches and work for 60 rows. Then I am supposed to have 30 slipped sts along each side of piece.
The question is, how am I supposed to have 30 sts on each side if I knitted 60 rows?
Then the body instructions say to pick up 30 sts along first side (I have 60) k 15 along cast on edge, then 30 along the other side to have 90 sts. How is that? 30 + 30 + 15 = 75.
Please tell me what I am doing wrong on such and easy piece.
I made this darling little bag over the weekend. Added a few rows of fun fur near the top of the bag, a funky button and lined it with a scrap of small print fabric. My 12 year old granddaughter is thrilled with this sassy little bag. It's a great project for those of us with a stash of bargain yarns and a need for projects which can be finished quickly. Patty
I have really liked using this pattern. Couldn't remember where I had gotten it from but will be using it again now.
I made this for my daughter in law after not knitting for many years! Had a great time with it and it turned out beautifully! Added some needle felting and a button my mother had on a dress in the 1940's. Had a hard time giving it up but she really loves it.
