Felted Tapestry Crochet Skull Bag (for Right-Handers)

"With Tapestry Crochet, one yarn is single crocheted, while another is carried," explains Ventura. "Colors are switched while 2 loops of the unfinished single crochet stitch are still on the hook. This pattern is written exclusively for right-handed crocheters and it would be a great introduction to tapestry crochet since it's crocheted with a large hook and loose stitches. The bag shrinks and felts like magic in a washing machine. The pattern is visible on the inside and the outside and the felted fabric is so substantial, the bag does not need to be lined." One of the first things we were ever asked for while clerking in a yarn store was a pattern for a skull and crossbones in crochet. With this pattern, we feel like we're making good on that long-ago request. American crochet terminology. Gauge is 11 single crochets to 4"/10cm on a K US10.5/6.5mm hook. Special version for left-handers available here.
