The Miller family’s love for ice cream in Issue #1 inspired this design. Use the small bag to transport an emergency stock of ice cream (works with a pint or a tall quart) or a small project. Keep the bigger bag in your car for grocery or yarn shopping, or for superhero gear. Published in HandKnit Heroes, Issue #2.
- When working Round 1 of the Mesh Stitch, after having slipped the last stitch (a YO) from Round 4, doesn’t this mean there will be two YOs at the beginning of the round? No. The slipped YO from Round 4 is simply the first stitch of Round 1 (try not to think of it as a YO anymore, if that helps). This stitch is incorporated into the first SK2P of Round 1, and there will be only one YO at the beginning of the round.
- My mesh seems gappy at the beginning of Round 1. During the design/editing process, Stephanie and I discovered that this may happen when using a soft, slippery yarn, such as bamboo. If using a sturdier cotton or cotton-wool yarn (such as the suggested O-Wool Balance), the gap will be less noticeable. One thing you can try when working the first SK2P of this round is to slip the stitch knitwise instead of purlwise; doing so may help tighten up the stitches.
