Notes:

  • I used regular worsted weight yarn for the tote pictured but, it is best to use worsted weight, cotton yarn for a sturdier finish.
  • Turning chain does NOT count as your first stitch (unless otherwise specified). So, when working in the round, be sure to work your first stitch in the same stitch as join.
