Your friends will think you worked hard to make this cable-rich purse, but you will know that each cable is only four stitches wide. To assemble teh body of the purse, you just pick up stitches on the side and bottom panels. The removable insert is optional, but I highly recommend it, as it gives the purse a nice shape and additional sturdiness. Why not take the time to learn an easy cable and reward yourself with a big, beautiful bag you’ll want to take everywhere?
