MY DESIGN IDEAS AND ADVICE
I love simplicity and I love the fact that one simple stitch can create an unique look. The stitch I have used is the double crochet. So this simple bag looks more complicated than it is! It uses just double crochet and chain stitches with striping. Simples! These are the things I teach on my Learn to Crochet Workshop or if you can’t get to Skipton then click on the link below for my How To Videos.
