The Hugs & Kisses Purse is a little package of love all bundled up. At approximately 5 inches (12.5cm) square, and with a 16 inch (40cm) skinny strap, it is the perfect accessory for a night out on the town - with or without a date. The cabled Xes and Os give it the right amount of whimsy without being too heavy.
The pattern is designed for exactly one skein of Patons SWS (wool/soy blend) yarn, plus US 10 (6.0mm) needles and a cabling needle. You may need additional yarn if you make modifications and/or don't knit to gauge.
20 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in cable stitch
