Learn how to crochet the purple and white "X" pattern at the top left corner of the Groovy Berry Crochet Messenger Bag. This panel features the surface crochet technique. Perhaps the best part is this two-color stitch pattern requires you to only use one color at a time. In other words, you can expand your crochet colorwork vocabulary and learn various techniques by only using one color of yarn at a time!
