I have made this sachet twice - the first time was a real hassle due to the leaf edging, but I got help from someone on ravelry and got it done - but the leaves were wrong side up - I did get an email from Kathleen asking about the problems I had with the leaves - I do remember getting feedback - that was last summer.  I didn't have a problem with it the 2nd time I made it as I had written down the info when a friend helped me the first time - and the leaves are right side up with the 2nd sachet.  Both times I used Queensland Sugar Rush - it does split a bit, but it makes a beautiful sachet.  Once the leaf pattern was figured out, I can say that I enjoyed making this sachet with this yarn.

What kind of yarn did anyone use?  Looks like the Aurora yarn comes from Italy?  Can't even tell how much it costs.  Help!

Here are the corrections we're going to add to this pattern download:

In the leaf edging section below, all the Rounds should be Rows.  The leaf edging is worked back and forth across the needle on extra stitches cast on to the rim of the bag—like an Icord edging is added.  So, the after the last round of the bag’s upper edge, you cast on 8 stitches (on first needle) then work back across these 8 sts and knit the last cast-on st together with the first bag edge stitch.  Then you turn the work again, work the next bag-edge st together with the first lace edging st as  ssk and follow the chart to work across the leaf Edging sts.

 

 

Rnd 5: *K2tog, yo; rep from * around.

Knit 3 rnds. Leaf edging: Using the

knitted method (see Glossary), CO 8 sts

on Needle 1. Working back across sts just cast on, work set-up rnd of Edging

chart, working last CO st tog with first next st of purse upper edge. Turn work. Work Row Rnd 1 of Edging chart, working next st of purse edging tog

with first st of leaf edging as ssk (see chart and Notes). Continue working Work Rows Rnd Rnds 2–18, attaching each row to next st on upper edge of purse,

and placing bead as shown (see chart and Stitch Guide). Rep Rows Rnd Rnds 1–18 seven more times—all purse top-edge sts have been worked into leaf edging and 8 small beads have been placed. BO rem 8 sts.

Has anyone gotten better instructions for this bag? I want to make it but think I should wait since so many have a problem with it.  This is November 2, 2009, surely they have some better instructions by now.  Help!  Dalene B

And here it is, 5 MONTHS LATER and still nothing is posted. A new Knitting Daily has gone out in the last few days (10/30/09) with this pattern again mentioned, but I don't see any further clarifications published with it... I wholly agree with Jackie J. Geez, Interweave come on!

Hi Folks,

I'm working on getting some better directions for you. Sorry for the LONG wait!

Could someone please tell me where I can find clearer written instructions for the leaf pattern?  I am sick & tired of trying to work this pattern out.   Looks like this bag will go into the UFO cupboard!

Cheers,

Sheryl in Australia

My comment is not on the bag itself, which I am just about to start, but with the problem getting a reply from Interweave. This has happened to me several times. I have sent emails, left messages etc. and never received a reply. I would prefer that the company spend less time making galleries of projects and attend to the needs of those who buy and read the magazine and receive Knitting Daily.

If I resolve the problem with the leaf mentioned I will post an my solution here. Should be sometime next week.

I am using Sugarland Rush for this bag.  It is knitting up beautifully.  The body of the bag is easy to do, but the leaf pattern is another story.  The directions for the leaf pattern are difficult to understand and leave too much to the imagination.  I have recently spent countless hours working on this myself and also at my LYS.  We still have not been able to achieve the results.  There is very little information out there - other than a few people saying that they have had trouble with it - no one has said how they have resolved the problem.  My LYS left a voice mail with the designer at Interweave regarding how to interpret the leaf pattern.  That was 2 weeks ago, and she has never gotten a response.  I started this on 5/20 with plans to have it done for my daughter's wedding shower on 6/20 - needless to say, it is not going to be completed by then.  I would appreciate any advice as I would like to complete this prior to her wedding day of 7/31/09.
