It has a nice open stitch pattern to allow for air circulation until you get home.

The Stitch Pattern

The stitch used is the blossom stitch, which gives you a nice lacy fabric, which is perfect for a summer bag. It’s created with double crochets, single crochet and chain one spaces. It is very easy to crochet, but if you need assistance you might want to check out this tutorial: Crochet Blossom Stitch

How It’s Made

This is an easy crochet beach bag pattern, which is worked in one piece from bottom to top!

Bottom. First, a rectangle is made for the bottom in single crochet stitches. I work my rectangles in the round, starting off with a long chain, and then working on both sides of the chains to create my first round. If you’ve never done it before, here is a tutorial to help with that. Working on Opposite Side of Chain

Body. The side of the bag is worked in the blossom stitch. It is a two round repeat, with each round joined after completion.

Handles. The handles are worked in the round as well, and in one piece with the bag. Instructions are provided below, but if you need more help this tutorial might be of help. How to Make Crochet Bag Handles

The Yarn

I used a #4 worsted weight cotton yarn, called Bernat Handicrafter Cotton. I love this yarn for bags. But, feel free to use whatever you prefer for your beach bags.

Optional Lining

Although labeled as a beach bag, this bag can be used as an everyday bag as well. As a beach bag, I wouldn’t add a lining, but if you want to use this a tote for personal belonging when you’re out and about, a lining can help to make it more durable.

The following tutorial not only shows how to insert a lining and a zipper, but also how make small pockets in the lining to hold small essentials such as your keys, wallet and phone. How to Line a Crochet Purse
