  Correction  The vertical slit bag srarted at the top and was finished off by method 4 in the link given in previous post.  This particular horizontal slit bag started at the bottom with the grommet start.  Either way of starting would work equally as well.

For a more complete look at the vertical and horizontal slit nets look at the challenge and the solutions here.  Tony

I don't know why my previous reply apppears twice???????.  One of the mysteries of the computer age.

  I finished the bottomof this net by method 4 in this link.  Any of the other methods would work except #1 used in smaller projects.  Tony    http://pineapple.myfunforum.or…..ut468.html

Rita,

  You can start at the top or at the bottom of the net. 

First you must create the slit.  You must te into a substitute for the loops you would regularly tie into as shown below.

The slit you just created has too large a gap so that the first and last loops in each row must be butted together (#s 1 & 10 and 5 & 6).  Go around the opening with a sligltly smaller mest as shown below.  Tony

Tony,

The close-up photo of the horizontal opening left at least as many questions as were answered.  Did you make this bag from the bottom up or the top down?  How did you finish off the bottom of the bag?  I guess that you use a smaller mesh stick to create the adjustment on the top row. I'm trying to figure out how you attached the bottom row of the horizontal opening.  My brain is trying to come up with some solutions, but I would like to hear your answer.

The horizontal slit requires a little adjustment of the meshes or it will flop open awkwardly.  Here is a close-up of the opening.

Tony,

The red cord was a great idea.  It makes it clear where the opening is. 

I've never thought about a horizontal opening.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I make these bags to store onions or potatoes.  Shown with the tennis and golf balls to show concept.  The red string is woven around the slit to show the opening.  Not part of the net.  Tony

Great for storage.  Drawstring at top for adding new items.  With slit opening just reach in to take out what you want.
