This is a really interesting pattern since it combines both crochet and knitting techniques. Im not sure I can handle this one, since my knitting skills have never really progressed past knit one, purl two. If I played around with it, I might be able to figure out how to swap out the knitting portion for more crochet. One for the future, maybe.

Not a big crocheter but this is too cute to pass up and the little motifs are easy and go pretty quick, great to chuck into your bag for on the go crafting.
