Royal Antler Crochet Mock Cable Bag

Sharing is caring!

The Royal Antler Cable Crochet Bag is made with simple knit look-alike stitches that give it a mock cable appearance. this one is really special because it's a mimic of the knit antler cable. This has been something that's been difficult to achieve in crochet, until now.

Royal Antler Bag Notes:

The Mock Cable Crochet Bag is a crochet mimic of knit stitches, but not tricky! The unique
way of working ssc and blo sc with increases and decreases creates that ‘knit-look’, resulting in
a beautiful fabric without any bulk.

Working in continuous rounds, we will first work up the optional yarn bag handle, then the bag body. Next, working in rows, we will create the base and stitch the two together. Lastly, if using a store-bought handle, it will be added to the bag.

Special Stitches:

Split Single Crochet (ssc): also known as the waistcoat stitch. This stitch is worked as single crochet but where the hook is inserted is the only difference. The hook will
be inserted between the ‘V’ of the stitch.

Insert hook between the legs of the stitch (on the back of work the hook should be under the horizontal bar and between the upside-down ‘V’ shape as well), yarn over, pull up a loop to the height of a single crochet, yarn over, pull through both loops on hook. Keep your hands loose and comfortable. If your hands are starting to hurt, then the tension of the stitch is too tight. When entering the stitch, pull up the loop a bit more than you normally would; it will give the ‘V’ more space for the next round and make working the ssc comfortable.
