Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!
We are right in the middle of summer here in the United States and that means prime beach weather.
Today’s freebie is a retro crocheted beach bag pattern.
Fun and easy to do, the bag has a Plastic Liner, sewn with 3/4 yard of Plastic Lining Material and closes with a draw string using 12 one inch rings.
This beach bag uses four different colors of mercerized crochet cotton called “Puritan” by American Thread Company, now discontinued, “Puritan” was a 100% 4-ply cotton, No. 10 bedspread weight. A suitable substitute would be this DMC Cebelia Crochet Cotton, Size 10, 282 yards. The pattern calls for 2 – 250 yard balls of each color.
The entire bag is worked with a double strand of thread. A Steel Crochet Hook No. 1 is used or any size hook that will result in the stitch gauge — 7 sts = 1 inch.
