Curlyredheadgirl...thank ya thank ya...my bag is 9 inches wide and about 8 inches deep (from the bottom of the handles). It would hold anything I could imagine a gal would need throughout her day!

Hey! Sorry i'm so late to this but I don't understand how to make the one with knit handles. Can anyone help me?? I looked at the link to the rag bag pattern (http://www.knitblog.com/onmymind/Rag%20Bag%20Pattern.gif), but I don't get how to make those handles. How do you cast back on after you cast off?? Mine looks weird. Help please??

Check out http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/ and watch the video for single cast on or cable cast on These are two methods you could use to cast on after you have cast off some of the stitches.  I assume you use the long tail method to cast on regularly, as I do.

I hope this helps, and if not, feel free to ask more questions....

oo thanks so much AWynkoop! Now I know how to do it for the rag bag! The only thing I'm still worried about  is how there is so much space between the knit handles and the body of the bag with the cabled bag. Any ideas?

apandalee, I'm not sure that I understand your question...if you're copying the cabled handbag, and you're attaching handles:

straight/"knitting needle" style handles - can either be sewn on, or slipped through the stitches like real needles
round/bangle handles - sew these on

Sorry I didn't quote myself. I had already gotten a reply on this issue, I was asking about the one on the first page with knitted handles, which were done according to the rag bag patten (see my earlier post for a link). If you are familiar with this pattern it creates handles by casting off some stiches and then casting them on again. However, the handles in the rag bag pattern don't have a lot of space between them and the body of the bag and it looks like the cabled bag with knitted handles has a lot of space between so I was wondering how to do it. Whew that was hard. Look at the bag on the first page to maybe see what I mean. Thanks!

To make the handle like the rag bag, first figure out how many inches you would like your handle to be (my suggestion would be 3 to 4 inches since it would stretch), then figure out how many stitches that would take by kniting a gauge swatch, then center those stitches on your bag.  Depending on the yarn you use, you may want to knit more than 2 rows before the BO & CO for your handle.
