Beach Bag

Introducing this over sized cotton crochet beach bag. This bag is called the 4th of July Beach Bag.

There is no doubt about it, this bag is huge. A beach bag that can hold towels, picnic and even a blanket at the same time. I was surprised how big this really was.

The pattern features a chevron wave on the sides. In the tutorial, I show you how to carry the yarn instead of having to hide in loose ends all of the time.

Make one for yourself. This is part of Yarnspirations’ Summer Beach Bag Stitch Along for the summer of 2015.

  1. I’ve read the written pattern, watched the video, and am looking at every picture I can find of this, and I am *so* confused.

    Looking at the picture on the pattern and at the picture on this page, there are 14 “stripes” (28 rows) in the pattern
    C A B A C A B A C A B A C{with handle holes} A

    But reading the pattern directions it says to make the pattern up to B, put the handle holes in a pair of A rows, then work two more C rows.

    What am I reading wrong?

    Also, the pattern says to make it 14″ high then do the handle, but if I do the same number of rows as both bags show, I only get 12″ or so. And I did check my gauge. (and cursed as I frogged and tangled that much yarn!) What size should a handle-side panel be when it’s complete but before it is attached to the other panels?

    Help?
