Ok.. I thought about it and thought about it (over lunch.. it seems to be one of the best times to get my thinking done... heheh) and I think I may have come up with a solution that's not too confusing for the decreases...

What I'm thinking is this: (k2 tog, k3tog 36 times) twice... yielding 74 stitches... does that make sense to anyone else? It's the closest I could come to that elusive 75 stitch remainder!

Hmm... actually... while crunching some numbers I realize that k3tog all around would yield 74 stitches as well, as there would be one stitch left over you would just simply knit... well, I guess it's either or...Smiley

I realize that I was probably never part of this knitalong, but I did finish the bag back in April, so I thought I'd provide some encouragement to those still working on it:

I forgot to decrease the top and add a buttonhole, but I like it anyway. It's made out of Plymouth Encore, double stranded. I gave it to a friend who loved it, so I don't have any other pictures of it.

Good luck to the rest of you with your bags!

oh... my... god... I think I just figured out how to do the decreases to get the 75 stitches.. LOL.. I just HAD to figure it out, as I'm a challenge monkey!

How does this grab all of you?: (k2tog, k3tog 14 times) repeat 5 times.... Cheesy Cheesy

Haha, so I'm not the only one who ran into problems with that? I couldn't understand how they wanted it done, so I k2tog one round, then decreased the rest of the stitches on the second round. I don't get why they don't just write it out in the pattern, it's not like they haven't done the math...

Anyway, I finished it and lined it, not even knowing there was a KAL. It's an x-mas gift for my cousin. Hope it'll be an inspiration to someone. Smiley

The yarn is Eskimo Mix from Garnstudio, color no 40 (mix brown, it says on the site, but it varies depending on light between purple, dark gray, and brown).

Wow.  Shocked 



I'm not knitting the bag, but I had to go look at that because... wow.

I think you could do knit in the front and back (or knit and purl) in one stitch, twice, then do a lifted increase (m1) between the stitches, that would make 2 stitches into 5. So 88/2 = 44*5 = 220. Or maybe k1, KLL, m1, KRL, k1 (using the techniques on Knitting Help), which also makes 2 into 5.

Hopefully someone that is actually knitting the bag will turn up to tell you how they did it, but those are what I'd think of doing.

Heh, I actually knitted the bag and I can't remember exactly how I did, but I think I knit front and back + picked up the strand between... possibly. Sounds like something I would do.

I've heard Garnstudio has great customer service though, so try and e-mail them!
