Aargh! These pirates look a mite seasick. However, this picture makes me feel better. I thought the pirates were getting lost, but they’re not.

I think I may wind up with 4 repeats before I felt. Must remember that major shrinkage occurs especially height-wise!

The basic pattern is the “Little slip of a thing” from Knitty this fall? summer? with some extra stitches for borders. I’m toying with spirally icord type patterns for the shoulder strap. Any suggestions?

Also original bag would bind off in green icord. Again, I might want to do something more….stripey, but I’m not sure how in icord…
