Very cute, I love this style.....and it's so much easier to make them than spending 100 dollars (or over) on one.....YAY!

I'm nervous to share an exact pattern since I pretty much copied the Margaret and Nicole 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.

Hey how many stitches did you cast on for this  bag?

Those are SO cute and simple! I love the idea of using DPNs for handles. I must make these!

For a bag with two cables, I cast on 42.  For a bag with 3 cables I cast on 60.

For the bag with the knit handles in seed stitch I cast on 35 stitches and increased after the handle shaping to 42 stitches before I started my cable sequence.  Of course at the end of my rectangle, I had to decrease to knit my other handle in seed stitch.

Those are soooo adorable.....

I've been putting off trying cables (i admit it, i was scared!  Shocked), but these cute little clutches are just the inspiration i needed!

I started making one...almost done....now i just need to find some handles!  (btw, using some 100% merino wool i got at smiley's sale in manhattan....let me just say about 1.5 balls of $1.50 yarn sure beats $130 bucks Grin!)

***I finally finished!***

I love this design....so cute!  Here's what it looks like:



AND i accidentally made it reversible!
