Celtic cable

Here is my latest challenge. I am trying my hands at a Celtic cable design down the front and back of a red currant coloured shoulder bag that I will felt for this winter. I hope this strong braid design will remain once the felting is complete so it has an embossed look. I haven't done any cable knitting for at least 15 years so it's tricky getting my head around this pattern knitting while in the round on circular needles and shaping the bag at the corners also. My idea is good just hope the reality is as good. Further progress photos soon.
