Kitties In A Row Tote Bag Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

I Love This stitch Pattern. 
It is fun to crochet and looks really cute when it is done.
But because I have and love Chihuahuas,
 I decided to call it "Chihuahuas in a Row".
 Just kidding. 
You will see I didn't stitch my tote bag up 
in the traditional way of 
doing the "Kittens in a row" Stitch pattern..
I changed colors every 2 rows, not every 3 rows.
You know me,
 I like to change things up a bit.

I Love These Bright colors too!
And the yarn is Redheart Supersaver.
So it can be washed easily.

I really do think they look like Chihuahuas in a row!
