Fans of cabling, here’s a new challenge for you: this tote IS cabled, but not in a traditional roping pattern. Instead, the cables on the sides cross one knit stitch with three purls, forming sunburst checks. Just for a fun contrast, the strap is a super-traditional woven braid. This is a great project to practice cabling without a needle!
