Red Cabled Bag
Ultimately it will be a knitting project bag, about 16" high. At this time it is about 6 1/2 " high. Notice that the bottom edge really wants to curl, but I think that will settle out when I pick up for the base. I am designing it as I go. The top edge will conclude at the appropriate length and after a "cross" round. I have awesome lining fabric for it and will also use plastic canvas sheets for stiffening on the sides. I plan to have a special piece of hard plastic cut for the bottom.
Here is a close up of the stitch pattern, which is a 12 - row repeat. Cables cross right on row 6 and left on row 12. I am a Continental knitter, but on the cross rows and the the following rows I throw the yarn. It is easier on my hands, and I can work at the very points that way.
