@marydwyer 4771603, I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. I have two options for you: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. 2. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance! Here is the link:

Hi, I have been knitting for 25 years and am having trouble knitting with these instructions for the above Cable Bag. Are you suppose to alternate between the Cable Pattern and the Cable Panel and if so when does that come in. Really confusing to me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I think the cable panel worked over 4 rows is for the handles only. I hope it helps! Rob

.let me know what you are willing to pay...we might work out something...

Just looking for someone to make me a chocolate brown cable bag to carry all my small medical stuff to and from the hospital! Its the perfect size for rubber gloves, masks, and sick bags!
