Slightly Askew 6-Pack Tote - Free Crochet Pattern



This wasn't originally supposed to be a free pattern, but honestly I'm not thrilled with how the pictures came out after 11,000 attempts, and I'm ready to move on.  So win for everyone else!  Now you can pick up your 6-packs of whatever in style and feel good that you're using a reusable bag.  The planet will thank you too.
