Ok, I have looked over the pattern so many times. I know I can follow the actual knit pattern without a problem (I hope!). I'm going to use 5 colors to knit the smaller version of the bag. On page 3 of the pattern, under modules Tier #1, I see it has two rows. I'm not sure how to do this part here, I'm thinking the first row under 5 colors, Modules state 1,2,5,6 then the next row for Tier #1 has 3,4,7,8.
I should knit 4 of the MC=A(blt grey) and CC=E(smoke grey, the base color) for 1,2,5,6 and then MC=B(tan) and CC=E(smoke grey) for 3,4,7,8 then apply the AcAdBcBdAcAdBcBd?
I'm just nervous my first time. I won't bug you about putting them together until I get the 8 knitted. Be back in a day or so!
