MISS SIXTY

Making a shoulder bag and mittens is a good combination of crochet projects. Suitable for own use or as a gift.

 

One colour shade can work with a mix of different crochet stitches. Crochet cable is a great technique that adds extra texture to the projects. Make it more fun by adding buttons or wooden beads.
