So I thought I’d try crocheting something summer-y, as the sun’s out! The past few weeks I’ve been making beach/market bags using cotton yarn. Some of them I followed a pattern which I will link to, and others I either adapted patterns or designed myself. For all of them I used Drops Muskat 100% cotton DK yarn, and a 4mm hook.

For this one I adapted the instructions for doing a round chevron blanket which I found here: crochetville forum. Then I just stopped increasing once I achieved my desired width. At the top of the bag I did 2 rounds of SC’s and then made the handle the same as for the two beach totes in the section above

I made the pattern up for this as I went along. I basically made 2 identical mandalas, and then made a strip of a few rows of double crochets to join them together and give the bag depth, and then I added a single crochet strap. If anyone is interested in the pattern, comment on this and I’d be happy to add it.
