1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled wrist bag *Now with pattern* on: March 12, 2007 11:52:58 AM
Hi all! I was inspired to make this bag from a pattern I had seen in book, I believe it was called Simple Knits. I did not want to pay $25.00 for a book that only had one pattern in it that I liked, so I came up with this! Thanks for looking!

Bind off in pattern.

With dpn's make an I-cord 11 inches long for handle. (I casted on 6 sts)

Sew pieces together, fold down cuff at top of bag, attach handle to inside of cuff. Voila!

This pattern could also be adapted to work in one piece on dpn's if you prefer, if you're not a fan of the finishing.

I'm not the best pattern writer, so just ask if you have any questions!
