The Breeze Bag is worked from the bottom up. The bottom is flat, and it is worked as a growing circle in the round on double-pointed needles, while the sides of the bag are worked in the round in a lace pattern on circular needles. At the top, the bag is divided into two sections and each section is finished separately. At the end, stitches are picked up and knitted along the edges of the bag and a double knitted edge is worked, which continues as the straps of the bag. Straps and edges are worked as one continuous piece, and at the end a length of herringbone tape is inserted through the hollow center to give it extra strength.
