Cabled Bag Design & Class
Excellent new photos courtesy of Sarah.
I'm rather proud of this design, if I do say so myself.
I'm a big fan of smaller, structured bags. I'm not very tall, as I've probably mentioned before, and the oversized slouchy bags so popular at the moment look silly on my arm.
It works up quickly, in a nice thick yarn, on needles slightly smaller than usual to create a good solid fabric.
The pattern is available at The Naked Sheep, and I'm also teaching a class on it in April. The class is two sessions -- the first teaches everything you need to know about cables of all kinds , including reading of both written instructions and charts. And the second focuses on this bag, and the complex and sophisticated cable it features.
