Michaels' Fashion Cable Knit Bag

[FONT=Century Gothic][COLOR=indigo]This booger is [B][SIZE=4]WORK[/SIZE][/B] ! http://www.michaels.com/art/online/projectsheet?pid=25345[/COLOR][/FONT]

[FONT=Century Gothic][COLOR=#4b0082]I’ve reached what is supposed to be the halfway point :woohoo: , but, it seems to be too short for how wide it is…do you know what I mean? I’m wondering if anyone else who has knitted this, decided to knit an extra 12 row repeat :hair: ? [/COLOR][/FONT]

[FONT=Century Gothic][COLOR=#4b0082]If you have pictures of yours, please share…I’m scared to death of the idea of ‘seaming’…I usually avoid it like the plague.[/COLOR][/FONT]

[FONT=Century Gothic][COLOR=#4b0082]Here’s a picture of mine that I took earlier…since then, I’ve finished the third panel repeat.[/COLOR][/FONT]


sorry I don’t know how to relabel the url so it is shorter

here is the link to the threaad of my finished cable purse/bag. it is in the What’cha knitting section mow on page 3. I agree that it is hard to notice the v’s and bumps especially on the cables. I had to work the pattern backwards for about 6 rows before i could start to recognise which stitches were which. By the end I was an old pro. I never had the feel ing like the bag was going to be too short halfway through. Also, about seaming, I was terrified of seaming too. everything I have ever tried to seam turned out OK, not great. I watched the video on here about seaming. I think it is called mattress stitch. Mine turned out Wonderful! I couldn’t be happier!

Your “bag” looks great so far. i thought it was fun to knit. can’t wait to see the final version.
