MR. & MRS. SANTA CROCHET PATTERN ♥

  13. Ana! Tengo tus dos libros y me encantan mi mama me hizo muy feliz cuando me regalo el segundo! en fin tengo una pregunta. El punto que usas es tomando los dos lados de la cadena? me queda el punto muy abierto y se ve el relleno, y no es que teja flojo. Cambio de gancho a uno mas delgado y sigue el problema. Que me sugieres gracias!
