Remember this was my first entrelac project. It was fun and interesting. The pattern I used was Entrelac Satchel, which has great instructions, including a photo tutorial.
I cast on six more stitches to make it a bit wider. Then I decided to line it and add a zipper.
The lining obviously doesn’t “match” but I had it in my stash and it was easy to get to so . . I chose it. The zipper . . ah . . the zipper! I could only get a white one or a navy one. I probably should have gotten navy but I didn’t want a dark lining . . too hard to find stuff in a dark bag. I figured I should use the walking foot for the knitting so the zipper is kinda sloppy but, it’s in and it qualifies me for the “Seamstress” badge at Eat, Sleep, Knit.
Once I added the zipper, I didn’t like the way the white was showing at the top of the bag so I added ribbing at the top to make the zipper a bit farther down from the top. I added an I-cord loop on the side . . and it’s done!
The entrelac was fun. I’d love to make an entrelac scarf . . some day . . not soon!
