Cute bag. I would like to work it with your Hunny Bear instead of a paw. Daughter is a Pooh nut.

Another winner, nice job

I love it - it would make a wonderful bag to put my doggy's treats in when we go for walks.

Hugs!!!

OOOH! My Clemson friends will LOVE this! I made them some orange and white paw mittens a few years ago so this can accompany those :)

PLease can you tell me when you say 'pick up 10 stitiches and turn' what does that mean?? after the knit 21 rows. Pick up (in England) means make ten stitches at the insertion point. I would really appreciate your help. Thank you.

amy-lynne......... said...

you pick the stitches up from in between the rows and then when you get to the next side (turn).... you pick up stitches from the remaining long side of the bag then turn and pick up stitches between the rows then add your stitch marker... hope that helps.... if not holler at me again

Lindsay said...

So do you cast off the after the 21 rows and then pick up stitches form the sides?? The 21 rows makes a square so what do you mean by the 'long side'??? Still confused. Sorry

amy-lynne......... said...

you do not cast off.... you are picking them up as i mentioned in the last post...you get to the end of the rows for the bottom ... start picking up between the rows (making one)the sides... once you get to the end and cant get anymore you will turn and go the length across to the other side of the bottom (long side)...

yes indeed it is another winner. I was a pooh nut too when I was little. I know lindsay it is way confusing i still dont get it

Mark Ackerman said...

I made this lovely bag but one of my paws has a blank spot in it. It is the last one on the left as you are looking at the bag. Are there anymore corrections to the patterns or maybe I did something wrong? Thank you.

amy-lynne......... said...

mark, sorry this is late getting back with you, there is supposed to be a lil blurp open spot on one side of the bottom part of the paw....does that make sense?... if not email me direct at frogiez01@yahoo.com with paw bag in subject line and i will send you the chart too... so you can double check...n sorry for the troubles this is giving you..... thanks, amy-lynne
