Crochet Beach Tote Bag Pattern – With the incredible weather we live in on the west coast, we spend most of the day at the lake. Sometimes I feel like getting all my stuff to and from the beach (I know this is a really hard problem).

Hanging out on the beach also means I usually have free time to watch my daughter swim and build a sand castle. I decided it was time to come up with a fun new but rewarding crochet project – a crocheted beach bag.

Size N (9mm) Crochet Hook
Yarn needle (optional)
2 yards of 3/8″ twisted rope (I found mine at Joann)
1/2″ Fashion Grommet Kit (Also found at Joann)

This bag is made from Bernath’s new streetwear thread using star stitching. I was so excited when I came across this rope! I had a lot of ideas, but settled on the bag because it could be versatile. It works as a picnic bag, park bag, beach bag, or just a tote bag whenever you need it. The advantages of using street yarn is that you can literally take it anywhere without the worry of messing up like regular yarn.

This crochet bag is made from heavyweight cotton (# 4) and blends well with other fibers. It is a simple basic design that is very easy to customize. You can change where and how many colors you add; or change the number of colors, or if you want something more, add markers to the base and work longer.

Beach Please Summer Tote Pattern


Bulky Weight Yarn – I used Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn in Clay, Aqua, and Woodberry. This project took about ¾ of the skein of the main color (Clay) and then only a little bit of the other two accent colors. This yarn was really neat to work with. It’s a cotton and nylon blend in the shape of a knitted tube. The bag feels nice and sturdy in this yarn, but still soft. You can use another bulky weight yarn for this project, or double strand a thinner yarn, like cotton. Just make sure you check the gauge below to help you with your yarn substitutions so you aren’t surprised with a much smaller/larger bag.
Crochet hook – 6mm size – I always use (and honesty love) my set of Clover Amour hooks!
Yarn needle for weaving in ends

8 back loop SC stitches = 2 inches wide
7 rows of back loop SC stitches = 2 inches tall
