It has been designed with 100% hemp yarn in lace which is super light weight but strong enough to carry your loose produce and one of the most sustainable options of yarn.
The pattern is written in English and you will receive one PDF containing two patterns, one with U.S. crochet terms and one with U.K. terms. They include plenty of progress photos to help you on your way and full descriptions of each stitch used.
