Or if you're in dance class, you might get a warning not to watch the clock! Dance is all about timing, afterall!
Started at the center of the bottom and worked out in the round, “Watch the Clock” was named for its 12 wedges of Seed st bordered by columns of single knit sts. Those single sts then grow to form the cables that tilt their way across, and up, the sides of the bag, much as dancers turn and spin their way across the stage or practice room floor.
This pattern includes both written and charted instructions.Measurements:
Bottom of bag (ie chart 1) = 8”/20 cm across
Held flat, bag is about 16 ¾”/42.5 cm across at the top of the bag
Height (cast-on to cast-off) = 15½”/39 cm(not including handles)Gauge:
19½ sts & 28 rnds = 4”/10cm in Seed stMaterials:

With all the important discussions about accessibility going on, I'm making it a priority to go back through my patterns and add low vision pdfs to them. I'm using the guidelines set out by the Accessible Patterns group. Changes in the new pdf include: 22pt font instead of 12pt, photo(s) captioned, page numbers shifted to the lower left hand side from the lower right hand side, and use of bold type in place of italics and underlines.
