I'm really happy with how this turned out.  My lovely friend got me some Manos variegated yarn for my birthday a while ago, and I finally got it together to make it into a messenger like bag (due to lots of time on an airplane!)

I just made up the pattern.  Did a garter stitch bottom, picked up stitches around the sides and knitted around and around on circular needles to the top! I kept four markers to keep the sides/front/back stitches separate, and when I got to the top, I bound off the front stitches, put one side on a holder, and knitted the strap from the other side stitches in garter stitch.  When the strap was the right length, I did a three needle bind-off with the other side stitches.  Then I knitted a flap from the back stitches.  I hate sewing stuff together at the end, and with this pattern, I didn't have to. I hope that makes sense...let me know if anyone wants further direction.

Wow, this is cute and you're smart to come up with a way to avoid sewing at the end.  I'll have to investigate this 3 needle bind off.

VERY cute. How large is it? And I agree, genius on the no-sew at the end. I hate finishing projects! How sad!

Thanks...it's big...about 14 inches wide and 10 inches tall.  I don't think it's sad that you hate finisihing projects...it's just good to come up with ways to make it easier--always knit in the round when possible!  Wink

Thanks...it took quite a while, but that's why I brought it on the plane...it was pretty mindless knitting...around and around on the circular needles, so perfect for long trips!  Smiley
