GAUGE:
Rectangle = 5 x 16 in. (12.5 x 40.5 cm) EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO THIS PROJECT. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
1.

The instructions provided in the loom manual for casting on are the same for both flat knitting and knitting in the round.

These instructions are listed under the heading of SINGLE KNITTING.
2.

Always knit in a clockwise direction around loom for single knitting in the round.
3.

Contrast color peg is used to mark the beginning of each round for the Straps.


4.

Once you've cast on for the Edging, begin alternating working back and forth for single knitting.


5.

For Edging, loom is kept in the oval set-up to make it easier to hold.

Knit only on the indicated stitches for Edging.


6.

Four Rectangles are woven, then sewn together to make Bag.

Straps are knitted separately.
