Ohhh ok. And then for the other side I bind off and just sew it on the same way?

That makes things much easier... Thank you Smiley

actually, if you want, just don't bind off and slip the "live"stitches onto another handle.  Just make sure to glue the first stitch on each side.

instead of having to figure out a way to weave in the dowels, I'm saying you could probably just cast on to the dowels (like when you cast on to a belt buckle to knit a belt) 

it was just an idea

oh, I didn't know it was even possible, I'll have to check that out, it's probably the way the super expensive ones are done.  Thanks for the tip.

A belt? Please share patterns! I've never thought of knit belts.

And the bags are adorable! It never ceases to amaze me how much money people charge for the simplest handknits (and machine knits that look like handknits). Yours are definitely just as cute as the crazy expensive ones.

***I finally finished!***

I love this design....so cute!  Here's what it looks like:

AND i accidentally made it reversible!



 . . . Accidentally reversible?!

That's a scarf in disguise!  Does the pattern just work out reversible?  That would be so killer!

Got to go home to cali for a week, so was not online!

Thanks all for compliments....

mine measures around 8.4 x 4.5 inches

the square handles are actually chopsticks (about 80 cents for a dozen pair!) the i sawed the pointed part off of with a kitchen knife

i don't know the name of the yarn (i brought it all back home to cali!), it's a canadian brand of merino wool, bought at smiley's manhattan sale

i think i did this....k3, p4, k8 (cable), p4, k2, p4, k8 (cable), p4, k2, p4, k8 (cable), p4, k3....and i can't add now...what's that 58 stiches?

it's accidentally reversible cuz i used wide pink and purple ribon for the lining and when i flipped it inside out to sew, i realized i could use the shiny ribbon side as the outside too!

i actually was lazy and put one of the handles on without binding off and then sewed the other handle on like other's have mentioned.
