Knit Diva

Me and my obsession has come a long way since last couple of years... I definitely still consider myself a beginner and always looking to improve my obsession. I think it is my "CALGON"... It takes me away from my busy life with a wonderful husband and 8yo twin boys... YIKES!!! I never understood how addicting yarn could be until I started knitting.. I have crochet for some time on and off but I never felt attached to it as I do with knitting...

Cable Purse Pattern

Materials: One skein Burly Spun Yarn ( I used super bulky yarn), size 15 needles, one large cable needle, one row counter
Cast on: 38 sts.

Row 1: k2, p2, k4, p6, k4, p2, k4, p6, k4, p2, k2.
Rows 2 and 3: knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts.
Row 4: p2, k2, p4, hold the next 3 knit sts on the cable needle to the back, knit the next 3 sts, knit the 3 sts on the cable needle, p4, k2, p4, hold the next 3 knit sts on the cable needle to the front, knit the next 3 sts, knit the 3 sts on the cable needle, p4, k2, p2..
Rows 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11: knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts.
Row 12: Repeat row 4.
Row 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19: knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts.
Row 20: Repeat row 4.
Rows 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, and 27: knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts
Row 28: Repeat row 4.
Rows 29, 30, and 31: knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts.
Bind off all 38 sts

I added another cable to the purse because it was a little on the small side for me. So on Rows 29,30, 31, 32,33,34, and 35 were knit the knits and purl the purl sts. And then proceed into Row 4. After the cable stitch, Rows: 36, 37, and 38 knit the knits and purl the purls. Bind off 38 sts.

The pattern came from: Yarniverse

This pattern is very easy to follow and I will probably make another one of these bags...hehe

I hope you enjoy!!!
