i'm making a turkish string bag, and i'm caught up on a small part of the pattern.
here's the link: http://tiajudy.com/stringbag.htm

I've made the bottom of the bag and it's time to pick up the stitches on the side.
 
the question relates to these directions: "Continuing from the corner where the final row finishes, pick up and knit 15 stitches along each of the other three sides of the square (total 60 stitches)."

Do I pick up one stitch, knit it, pick up another stitch, knit it, etc. Or, do i pick up all of the stitches around and then knit them around one time?

thanks in advance, i'll try to post pics when i'm done!

When I did mine, I think I picked them up in the knit fashion (rather than purlwise) and went on from there. That was a couple of months ago, though, and I don't really recall.

This bag stretches out and is so lace-like anyway, so as long as you're consistent with what you do, I don't think it would matter much. As long as you end with those 60 sts, you're good to go.

As an aside, what sort of yarn are you working with?

thanks for advice. i figured it wouldn't matter much, but i hate to mess up and have to backtrack.

i'm using sugar and cream cotton. i've had it forever and i'm bad at saving labels so i'm not sure of the color name, but it's a bright turqoise. i'm not sure how many balls it will take, but i only have two so hopefully that's enough!

You could always find a co-ordinating color and make stripes, just in case. I don't remember how much yarn I ended up using I had some leftover skeins of acrylic that I used.
