What “-90” means? Sorry, I’m a beginner.
It means you repeat the same row for 90 total rows :)
I’m a bit confused. Before I start this (so cute and functional, by the way), I have a few questions. Is the pouch open only at the very top, so you have the whole length to put things in? And how do you secure the tassel wrap once it’s used to wrap up the pouch? It’s hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like some kind of knot? I’m a visual learner, so just can’t picture this in my head. Thank you in advance for your help.
Yes, it’s open at the top, but you don’t want to fill it all the way up, otherwise you can’t warp it closed. The tassel is simple wrapped around itself, not’s not a special knot. I just pushing it around and through a few times so it holds. Does that make sense?
Yes, thank you! I knew you didn’t want to fill it all the way up, but like I said, I couldn’t visualize it in my head. Thanks for your quick response. Can’t wait to start this!
