31  Crocheted Cables Purse w/ tutorial in Crochet: Completed Projects by eatyerhartout on: August 07, 2006 07:42:26 PM
You've probably seen patterns or purses similar to this one. This was my original design based on several purses I saw for sale and others' variations. I included a tutorial below. The purse shown was made with Peaches n' Creme 100% cotton yarn and a size F hook. It is 11" wide at the bottom, 12" from the bottom of the bag to the bottom of the handle, 17.5" from the bottom of the bag to the top of the handle, and the handles are 6 inches in diameter. I hope y'all like it!!  Wink

Cables Pattern

NOTES: After Row3, you will never crochet a tr in a hdc. Like sts are always crocheted into like sts (e.g: hdc in hdc). Once you have crocheted a tr into a st, you will not work that st again in any way. "Ch 2" always counts as first hdc of next row.

multiple of 8 sts plus 7

Row1: sc in second and remaining chs, ch 2, turn.
Row2: hdc across, ch 2, turn.
Row3: hdc in next 5 sts, *1 fptr in each of next 2 hdc of previous row, 1 hdc in each of next 6 sts--rep from * across. ch 2, turn. (This is the FRONT of the fabric. There will be no cables on the back.)
Row4: hdc in next 5 sts, *skip 1 st, bptr in next st of prev row, bptr in skipped st, 1 hdc in each of next 6 sts--rep from * across. ch 2, turn.
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until desired length, ending with row3.
Next Row: hdc across. ch 1, turn.
Last Row: sc across. finish off.

To Make Purse

Make a chain using the multiple given above. This will be the approximate width of your purse. Using the pattern given above, make a rectangle fabric. Keep in mind that this fabric will be folded in half to create the purse. Then you have the desired shape you wish, finish off and weave in the ends. Fold the fabric with the cables facing one another and sc up the two sides, leaving approximately 1.5 to 2 inches open at the top of each side (these openings are benificial when using round handles). Turn right side out. Use this fabric as a template for your lining. Attach a magnetic snap to the lining at this time (before inserting). Attach the lining by hand-sewing it to the inside of the purse. By sewing to the inside part of the crochet sts, your sewing thread will not be visible on the outside. For the lining to be sewn in strongly, use doubled thread and sew around the piece twice, at least at the area of the magnetic strip. Attach the round handles of your choice by single crocheting or whip-stitching the top eadgings to each handle. Attach a broach, ribbon, or flower of your choic to the outside of your purse or leave it plain. Ta daaaa--you now have your very own Crocheted Cables Purse!!!
