This structured cabled purse features an asymmetrical Celtic cable that runs horizontal instead of the more typical vertical placement. A double knit base creates a built in "pocket" for a strip of plastic mesh canvas to be inserted for reinforcement. The simple twist cable handle thickens the strap and echoes the front flap design without competing with it.
This sample was knit from a recycled wool sweater, other yarn suggestions have been provided to give the same rustic look and feel as the original.
The front cable flap is fully charted including all increases and decreases. Instructions are provided for working the open and closed cable loops as well.
Optional felting directions are also given.
