Welcome to KAS, Eva. I'm a crocheter too. My knitting skills are not too good, but I love crochet. The front loop back loop stitch is great. I also love sc,dc across the row of odd number of stitches. It makes a nice textured square.
Your handwarmers are going to be greatly appreciated.
"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
