This month for our Designer Review and Giveaway, Carol Hegar from Shady Lane Original Crochet Designs has donated a copy of her e-Pattern for 3 Native American Totes to be given away!
Title: Native American Totes
Author: Carol Hegar
Native American Totes Pattern Review
Carol uses her popular afghan technique of single crochet in the back loop of the stitch, and double crochet in the front loop of stitch 2 rows below (which forms the design) to create these 3 amazing tote designs.
These three colorful tote bags feature traditional Native American inspired themes. The geometric shapes really lend themselves to the dropped-dc format.
These crochet patterns use sc, hdc and dropped dc stitches to form the design. Carol has also included two options for an easier one-color center section. The written instructions as well as optional graphs are included. The three Native American Totes are crocheted using worsted weight cotton yarn.

Other Patterns To Try
This technique works really well for geometric designs and you can see other examples of Carol’s available patterns for Native American designs, hearts, diamonds, teddy bears, choo-choo trains, kitty cats and castles on her website.
Only simple stitches are used to make the potholders, so I feel a determined beginner would be able to make these projects. You will only need to understand where to find the front loops and back loops of your stitches, single crochet, double crochet and slip stitches. I love how easy this technique makes it to crochet mosaic designs.
