Cables Times Three!

The Irish Adventure Bag features three different cable patterns, each unique. But there is still a rhythm to it. Bobbles frame the stitching throughout, and the wrong side rows offer a little break from the post-stitch action on the other side.

"</p

One of the things I’m proudest of is the technique I used to make this bag seamless – even though it’s all worked in rows, not in the round! On top of that, we only have to break the yarn once during crocheting! With only 3 skeins used, you could make this whole bag and only have 6-8 ends to weave in.

"</p

Not Into Wool? Not a Problem!

Patons Classic Wool Worsted was a natural choice for the Irish Adventure Bag, but I know not everyone likes wool – or can tolerate it! So if this is you, I recommend subbing in Red Heart Super Saver. After all, it was originally designed to have the look and feel of wool in an acrylic!
