Easy Cabled Purse – free knitting pattern

Finally I decided to learn to knit in the round with DPN’s. But as I don’t like simply making swatches, I started something what seemed not very involving – yet still interesting. And soon I was making the bottom of a purse. Then, about the time I was going to start the sides, I recalled one nice cable I’ve seen not so long ago. And that’s how this pattern was created.

The purse is a rather easy piece. In fact, this is not only the first thing I knit in the round, but also my first cabled work, so it can’t be difficult. The purse could be a nice gift or a decorative accessory.

The original cable pattern can be seen here, but I adjusted it to knitting in the round.

And here is my pattern: cabled purse pattern. Enjoy!

And a printer friendly version as well (without photos).

What’s more, I discovered the most important advantage of knitting in th round: you don’t have to sew anything, hooray!!! (I hate sewing)
