Crochet Beach Tote

This crochet beach tote is perfect for all your beach items from a towel to a change of clothes. And if you’re not a beach person, you can always use this for your yarn and other items.

For bags it doesn’t really matter what yarn you use. I used the cheapest one I could find: Red Heart Comfort. But feel free to use any yarn you have on hand. Cotton especially, is a good choice for bags.

The bag is quite large to begin with and will stretch out even more. If you don’t want the stretch, you can always line it using this bag lining tutorial. I chose not to line mine as I don’t mind the stretch – it allows me to jam more stuff in when I need to. :)
