Handle for mesh Bag:
Spool loom. 2 strands 1.5 times diameter of yellow loom or 52.5-54.5″ long depending on material.
Weave the icord into the top of the bag between the knit stitch columns. Row to start the weaving. Look at the top of the bag. Weave between the two top purl rows. I started mine just above the bottom purl row (it’s the 2nd to last purl row you completed). Connect the ends by tying together and weaving in the rest. Feed access handle material equally on opposite sides to pull outward, making it look like two handles. See picture. Pull both handles to drawstring close and look like a purse or pull all of one handle to make as a shoulder strap! Weave in all loose strands.
