This summer we’re showing you how to make a crochet Beach Bag made from Katia Washi. A really cool project using jacquard stitch crochet as the key feature of the bags geometric design. This is the third crochet challenge that we’ve proposed in our Katia Crochet-Along Facebook group. After the practical Spring Bag and the YarnWoman super pattern, the amazing Sun, Sea & Crochet Bag, designed by Emilie from Lehandmade, has arrived. Proudly show off this beach bag, made by you, this summer! We’ve asked the Facebook Group members their opinion and this is the second most voted project. So you can see that we take the Group’s requests very seriously, which is why your knowledge and comments are so important to us. Are you ready to give it a go to learn, share and have fun with us and our CAL?
Crochet Beach Bag
If you want to make your bag the same as the featured design by Lehandmade you will need: 5 balls of Katia Washi in white col. 100, 1 ball in turquoise col. 116, 1 ball in jeans col. 118 and 1 ball in yellow col. 124. Of course, you can choose the colour combination that you like best from the Katia Washi range of 28 colours. Here are some colour ideas which we hope will serve as inspiration if you are thinking of using white (col. 100) or cream (col. 101) as the main colour for your beach bag.
In the crochet pattern you will find detailed instructions and images which we hope will be of help to you. In the Techniques section we explain how to work the jacquard stitch crochet so that the colour changes will not be seen. If you need to see how to work tapestry crochet or jacquard crochet more clearly you can watch the following video. We hope it will be useful, if you have any doubts, to help you make the colour changes successfully.
Of course, you can also count on the help of the CAL #KatiaSunSeaBag Facebook Group members. A meeting point for crocheters from all over the world where we are learning, sharing and having fun with each new crochet project. Throughout the next few weeks we’re going to crochet this beach bag in the Facebook Group. And once again, we are going to have two prize giveaways amongst all the people who take part in the project using Katia yarns. There will be one giveaway between all the participants from the Facebook Group and the other between all the photos published on Instagram that include the hashtags #KatiaSunSeaBag and @katiayarns. For this and so much more… join, share and have fun with our CAL!
