Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “BY SKILLFULLY COMBINING HALF DOUBLE CROCHET WITH SINGLE CROCHET STITCHES, the designer has created the illusion of horizontal knitted ribbing in this fun and funky duo. A chunky yarn in vibrant autumn tones emphasizes the technique, and each garment works up quickly. The project is great for newer crocheters and a fun one for the experienced.”
