I haven't actually tried this out yet but give me a few days and I'll get back to you.
Let me know if you have some tips.
This bag that I bought is lovely and soooo useful but it was only while sitting by the pool in Sicily that I realised why I love it so. Of course it's the crochet (double) and also it's totally within most people's capabilities. The clever-clogs side is the embroidery which I have analysed as single crochet applied to the double crochet panels. I think that this could be an answer to not having fairisle at a crocheter's command. We can do colour and pattern as well as knitters (well, almost).
I'll keep you posted on what I find out.
