Crochet Tote Pattern Simply Beachy

The Simply Beachy Tote is the perfect crochet tote for some outdoor adventure. It gives off the perfect vibe of sand and seashells. Throw in your sunblock, sunglasses, a book, some snacks, and you’re ready to sit back and relax. It’s made with cotton to be extra durable. The use of the herringbone half double crochet and pineapple cluster stitch give this tote loads of texture.

It is a 6 page PDF with Special Stitch instructions. For those who are more visual learners, it also includes a photo tutorial of the pineapple cluster stitch. It is made with 100% Lion Brand 24/7 cotton. The pattern includes 2 sizes. A smaller 9″ x 12″ perfect for quick trips around town or a solo trip to the beach when you just need a good book, a bottle of water, and a small snack. The larger 11″ x 12″ will hold all that and more, especially if it’s a family trip.
