Cable Check Bag

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


27 sts + 32 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Cable Check pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


3/3 RC (3 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back of work, k3 (next 3 sts from left hand needle), then k3 sts from cable needle.

Cable Check (multiple of 12 sts + 6)
Rows 1 (RS):
P6, *k6, p6; rep from * across.
Row 2: K6, *p6, k6; rep from * across.
Rows 3 and 4: Rep Rows 1 and 2.
Row 5: P6, *3/3 RC, p6; rep from * across.
Rows 6-11: Rep Rows 2-4 twice.
Row 12: Rep Row 1.
Row 13: 3/3 RC, *p6, 3/3 RC; rep from * across.
Rows 14 and 15: Rep Rows 1 and 2.
Row 16: Rep Row 1.
Rep Rows 1-16 for Cable Check pattern.

Cast on 90 sts. Beginning with Row 1, work in Cable Check pattern until piece measures about 18 in. (45.5 cm) from beginning. Bind off.

Fold 1 in. (2.5 cm) along bound-off edge to WS and around one handle; sew in place. Rep along cast-on edge with 2nd handle. Fold Bag in half, with RS together. Sew side seams, leaving last 2 in. (5 cm) at handle edges unsewn. Weave in ends. Turn Bag right side out.

Cable Check Bag Reviewed by Katy Holman on 2014-05-12 ***
I have to give it three stars for the following reasons 1 the instructions didn't tell how to end the pattern, 2 when I had to repeat rows 2-4 it wasn't exactly clear other then that a great pattern
