In the designer's own words, "Bargello technique has long been used in embroidery (Florentine embroidery). I thought, why not try to crochet pattern in this technique? The essence of this technique is to use different blending colors and combinations of them so that there were flames, waves, peaks. In the Bargello technique, you can associate a square from the center, a circle or a round motif. It'd be chic to crochet Bargello blankets, bedspreads, pillowcases, and cushion for chairs."
