Learn how to complete the bottom left corner of the Groovy Berry Crochet Messenger Bag. As you'll see, this corner of the bag features a variation of post stitch similar to the checkerboard stitch featured on the bags bottom right panel. This stitch makes each color lay on top of the row below. The front post stitch creates a two-color row, but you are only crocheting with one color at a time.
