I just finished my bag and to me it's a moment of: 'I never thought I could knit a cable bag'
To make it its a combination of this pattern and this. (I started with the small one and then decided to make it bigger. To only find out that for the bigger version you have to cast on less stitches... so now it is something in between those bags. I didn't increase the advised amount of stitches, that are so many stitches, more than half the amount of stitches which I had on my needle, not knowing how to do that. )
Used only one snap to close it instead of the buttons.
The yarn is Phildar Illico color Lichen.
For this yarn is recommended needle size 7/8. I used size 5 to make the bag feel sturdier.
Finally I sewed the linen with some pockets with a nice grey/blue check. (Oh I love this fabric so much, need to buy more of it :-)
Well I'm ready to do some grocery shopping. (sort of feel like a little girl with her new schoolbag)
