Sharyn Anhalt's Market Square bag is one of the cutest and most practical projects out there! Perfect for your knitting and crochet projects, a trip to the farmer's market, or the beach, you'll want to make several! In this class, Alison will teach you some of the necessary techniques needed to successfully knit this adorable bag.

In this class, you will learn to:

  • Pick up stitches on the edge of a project.
  • Slip stitches in a pattern.

Prerequisites: Participants must be able to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off stitches.

Homework: Prior to class, obtain the pattern at Cowgirl Yarn so that you can complete the homework: Come to the class with the bottom portion of the bag already knitted. Follow the pattern instructions, and slip the first stitch of each row purlwise. Leave your live stitches on your needles.
