Beach Tote in Interweave Crochet

As pictured in Interweave Summer 2012

My first pattern to appear in Interweave Crochet is this beach tote. I completed the bag on a cold day in January, and the issue has finally appeared (available now for digital download) and will be on the news stands early June.

The tote has a circular, swirled bottom and is finished with grommets and a colorful i-cord. The i-cord is attached with cinches at top and bottom, so you can close the bag and carry it as a backpack.

Getting a byline in Interweave Crochet was at the top of my bucket list when I began submitting patterns for publication! Grab some bright yarn and start this bag . . . you'll be done in a couple of days!
