Cable Band Bag

Coming up with projects to knit while traveling can be a bit of a challenge for me, they need to be engaging enough to be interesting, but not so difficult that I need to constantly refer to patterns or charts. I had recently done another project with a cable braid, and it seemed to fit the criteria pretty well, but this time I decided to try working a seamless cable band by doing a provisional cast-on, and an advanced grafting technique I found recently. Once the cable band was finished, the body of the bag is simply stitches picked up from the edge of the band and worked in-the-round. The only tricky part was the grafting, since I’d never grafted anything but plain stockinette before, but I found it to be quite easy once I figured it out. The bag turned out really cute, and I mastered a new technique, score!
