Cable Ready

from Cultured Purl
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Cable Ready
Cable Ready
Cable Ready

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl, cables.

Pattern Description:

I like the look of two colors in cables. Felted cables show up much better with two colors. This bag looks more complicated than it really is. It is a generous size - big enough for a purse, or to carry a knitting project. You could even use it for both at the same time.

The twisted straps emphasize the color combination and the two color cables.

The bag is made in flat pieces and then put together before felting. The pattern includes instructions for felting. Lining the bag is optional. NOTE: Do not use super wash wool for felting.


10 stitches/4 inches in stockinette stitch, before felting.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 8 inches high, 10.25 inches wide, 4 inches deep.


  • Two colors of bulky wool, 200 yards (180 meters) each, size 13 (9mm) needles.

You Will Also Need:

  • Cable needle, button
