Learn how to complete the top right corner of the messenger bag. This corner of the bag features a reversible stitch pattern and slightly jagged crochet stitches. As Mary Beth says herself in this video, one of the main things you need to know about crochet is where to stick the hook, and here you'll learn just where to do that to achieve this pattern. Plus, though this pattern looks like it contains a lot of color changes, you'll only be working with one color at a time.
