I'm nervous to share an exact pattern since it's a close copy of a designers clutch.  Here's hopefully enough to get you started.

The Cables are 8 stitches big that twist every 10 rows.  In between each cable (right side) are 4 purl stitches, 2 knit stitches, and 4 more purl stitches.  It's just a big rectangle folded in half.

If you want to knit the handle, I made mine in seed stitch and used the basic method described in this pattern. 

When you're done thread a ribbon through and tie into a bow.  I also threaded a ribbon through the handle to keep it from stretching out too bad. Finally, I lined it to for added support.

I agree with everyone that these are really cute. They remind me of a bag I saw while in Italy this winter. It was a cabeled tote (pretty big) with wooden circular handles. I really wanted it but it was expensive and I had prettyh much ran out of money by the time I saw it.

I really like the addition of the black ribbon on the white one. I may need to commision a freind to make one for me as I can't knit worth anything.
