Day at the Beach Bag


Tamara Kelly


The Day at the Beach Bag was weeks in the designing – but it’ll be a lot quicker to crochet! And I think it was totally worth it. I love all the little details, from the four”ropes” that run up to the handles, to the surface crochet on the handles themselves, to the stripe stitch pattern – borrowed from the Vintage Wobble Afghan! Every way you look at it, this bag is full of interest – for both the crocheter and the user!
