You will be ready for the beach with this Beach Bag free crochet pattern. This groovy bag is crocheted from the top down using the seed stitch pattern for the top and a shell stitch pattern called “Arches” for the body of the bag. This bag would be great to use as a shopping bag or maybe a dance bag for your ballerinas. However you use it, you’re going to love it, and you can tell your friends you crocheted it yourself!

The yarn we chose for this project is Cotton Fair by Premier. In addition to the solid colors, Cotton Fair also comes in some beautiful multi-colors. Cotton Fair is a lightweight #2, acrylic / cotton blend that creates soft, luxurious garments and accessories.

For this project you will also need 2 crochet hooks, sizes F-5 and H-8. Tulip Etimo crochet hooks are “crochet-all-day” hooks that are superior to any other. The have a signature soft comfort grip handle that you will never tire of holding. Combine the crochet-all-day handle with the highest quality aluminum hook and you have the Etimo.
