Fashion Cable Knit Bag
Hello everyone,

I have begun to knit a cable knit bag and don't understand the instructions for row two of the Panel Patern. The first row contains knit and purl stictches as well as T5B. The second row directions say "knit all knit stitches and purl all purl stitches as they appear". Does that mean that when you begin your second row, that what was a knit on row one a purl, or do you just do row one again? Thanks for your help.

It depends on whether you are using strait needles or cable

if strait: do the opposite, if cable: do the same

I'm assuming it's on strait so I'll explain, when you pull the stitch off the needle you leave a little hump behind you, if you are doing a knit stitch, the "hump" is on the back and with purl, the "hump" is on the front. You want to do the stitches to match so keep the "hump" on the front or back

HTH!

Thanks for your prompt response. I will take a look to see if I understand. I am using both cable and strait needles for this pattern. Has anyone seen the pattern for the purse I am speaking of? It is one of the free patterns picked up at a craft store.

If I'm not mistaken this means: The knit stitches are the "V" shaped stitches and the purl stitches are the "bumps". (At least that's how I identify them.) When you get the "V"'s on the needle, knit them. When you get to the "bumps" on the needle, purl them. Does that make sense?

And yes, I think what was a knit on one row will appear to be a "bump" on the next row and so you will purl it.

some people are confused by this, but I find that this has helped a few people understand the mechanics of knit and purl stitches
WAY back in the past, they used to call purl stitches "reverse stitches" because they are the same as a knit stitch only reversed. So, the back of a purl stitch is a knit stitch and the back of a knit stitch is a purl stitch. Knitting is just a series of interlocking loops, it just depends on if the stitch is pulled through the front or the back of a loop to make a bump(purl) or a V(knit).

When it says to work stitches as they appear, you just work in stockinette for that particular collumn of stitches (knit the V's and purl the bumps)
Understand?
I hope that made it clear.
some people hear that and just go "OOOOH"
and others look at my like i'm crazy

This is all good advice, and it is CRUCIAL to be able to recognize your stitches, but recognizing what's a 'bump' and what's a 'v' is kindof hard once the v's get stretched out by cabling ! Just take it slow and steady ! If in doubt, turn the work around and trace back what you did on the previous row and do the opposite.

I just finished the third repeat of the 12 row panels and am making myself do one per night ! This thing will work your forearms ! And I think I'm going to add one more repeat on top of the six they ask for.........it seems to be coming out much too wide for how short 3 repeats per side gets ya'.

I just started another thread about this bag, because I couldn't find anything in about it in a search for 'knitted cable purse'. Guess that's because it's called a bag, not a purse !
