Cactus Tote

Cactus Tote
Cactus Tote

"Problem: You have one skein of Flikka or Comfy Cotton Blend in your stash and don't know what to do with it. Solution: I made you a tote pattern! And it's free! You’ll also need a little Worsted and a little Super Bulky. I used the Flikka color Dill Pickle because I couldn’t resist the adorable name. Once I got the yarn home it reminded me so much of a cactus that I hopped on the cactus trend bandwagon and whipped up my version of a cactus tote complete with a big blooming flower! This tote has lots of pretty details both small (a subtle fan stitch and surface crocheted strap) and big (aforementioned flower). And it doubles as a purse! The tote takes about 4-6 hours. I hope you enjoy the pattern!!"
