NOTE: There is errata on this pattern that is critical to view before starting to knit!!!
First you have a small project on which to practice your cables, then you have a lovely little gift or tote bag. The bottom is knitted back and forth on straight needles, then you pick up stitches and knit in the round for the body of the bag.
Requires US 7 straight needles and five US 7 double-pointed needles, cable needle, stitch markers, and tapestry needle.
