This 8ply bag features plaited cable panels on the body of the bag and two plaited cable handles.
The body of the bag is worked in one piece then the side seams are sewn. The handles are knitted then sewn lengthwise to make a double fabric which is both sturdy and soft.
The bag can be fastened with a zip or press studs.

My mum taught me to knit when I was just four years old and I have been addicted ever since.
I now work (if you can call it work!) as a pattern writer and technical editor, both for companies here in Australia and for my own business.
I love the creative process and using a simple ball of yarn and a pair of needles to make something gorgeous yet practical.
