Looking for the perfect bag to grab and go to the beach? This giant crochet beach tote is big enough for your beach trip essential items. It allows the sand to spill out before getting in the car.

You can make in a whole spectrum of colors to use all throughout the year. It is designed as a beach bag but it's also a good size to take to the market. Thanks Micah York, Joanne and B.hooked for sharing the wonderful free crochet pattern. The link for the free pattern is provided below photo. Happy crocheting.
"This Afternoon Market Bag is named for how quick and simple it is to work up. Using a very simple pattern repeat, this market bag works up in an afternoon (or two!). This bag is very beginner friendly. This bag has a mesh structure for the body of the bag and a closed bottom to make sure that none of your items fall out but to give you a little stretch for more farmers market vegetables, more yarn or oddly shaped items."
Don't go to farmers markets without a tote of your own - make sure to bring along the 1 Skein Farmer's Market Bag. In the designer's own words, "this slouchy farmer’s market bag is perfect for shopping and hauling all kinds of goodies! It only uses one skein of yarn and can be used countless times instead of those icky plastic bags that really hurt our planet. I recommend using a cotton yarn for durability but photographed is an acrylic (I Love This Yarn in Pasha). Hope you guys enjoy this one, don't forget to post as a project so I can see your beautiful bags!
