Bobbled Bag Reviewed by Kelly Flading on 2012-11-22 *
This is a super cute bag, but the directions gave me such a headache. The amount of stitches do not add up correctly from the very first row...very frustrating. After row 1, I was able to muddle through, but the top (where draw strings go) gave me problems again. I would not rate this as an "easy" pattern due to the counting required...even though the stitches themselves are easy. I took completing this bag as a personal vendetta and did not enjoy this pattern at all. Once done, the bag is cute, though. I will not make another.

This bag is adorable and I find the directions simple and straightforward. I don't believe it would be easy for beginners though.

I agree - patter is very hard to follow - frequently coming out with incorrect numbers of stitches - I am still struggling with it - may not finish this one.

The pattern is difficult to follow. I think an editor needs to review and make corrections. I was able to muddle through and finish and it does make a very cute bag. I plan on adding a liner. I give this 1 star for clarity in the instructions and 4 stars for looks. Therefore 3 stars overall.

Bobbled Bag Reviewed by kristine on 2010-09-28 *
Although this bag is listed as EASY, I had a great deal of trouble with the pattern right from the first row. I had another knitter try in case I was misreading the directions but the result was the same. It took a great deal of noting where you are in the pattern and the resulting "bobble" was very strange in shape. I am a fairly experienced knitter so I don't know what was wrong. Too bad, since it is really cute!!
