"Free Beach Bag Pattern"

My free beach bag pattern may be worked in many different types of yarn, creating a range of different effects. The tension will vary depending on which material you choose to use. The appropriate hook size for your chosen yarn will also affect the finished measurements of this bag.

The finished beach bag shown in the photograph is worked in nylon crochet ribbon. This produces a very strong bag capable of holding all your beach necessities – towel, swimmers, sunscreen, hat, water bottle, and even your weekly fruit and vegetable shopping if you wish. Moisture won’t damage your beach bag, and it will dry out quickly. The design can be machine washed if necessary. It also makes a great diaper bag.

I hope you enjoy crocheting it as much as I did.
