How would I knit a tote bag where the handles seem to be made from a slit a few rows from the top of the bag?  Does that even make sense?   I know I've seen it before, but gah!  I can't find a pattern and I don't know the technique to do that. 

Can someone explain how I'd go about doing this?  I bet it's exremely easy and I'm just daft, but I can't figure it out. xD

check out mason dixon knitting's blog for their button hole bag

you can do it either by binding off in the middle of a row & then casting on over the bind on later on (how many rows later depends on how big you want the slit) or by doing short rows around where you want iteither way, i think mason dixon has info
