Crochet Cool

I love these cool bags.  They are crocheted using Patons Grace cotton yarn from the newest free pattern offered by Patons. They remind me of the swinging sixties. Maybe it’s the colors or the shapes of the motifs or both. I usually go for the brighter, more saturated colors but the muted colors appeal to me as well. I haven’t tried Patons Grace yarn yet, but I intend to give it a whirl soon. I like to crochet more with cotton and rayon so I am drawn to this yarn. I love the color range they offer. Before I begin a project, I choose the palette of colors that reflect the mood I’m in just like a painter does with her paint. The Grace yarn colors attract my eye and entice me to “load my palette” and start crocheting.

Have any of you worked with this yarn yet? Let me know what you think. If you download the pattern and make a purse, please post a photo somewhere so we can all admire your work. Enjoy.
