Summer Day Beach Bag
If you're searching for a summer design that's both colorful and easy, this Summer Day Beach Bag is just what you need. Knitting bags doesn't have to be difficult and this pattern proves that. Composed mostly of knit stitches, this pattern will allow a new knitter to practice the yarn over stitch as well as k2tog (knit two together).

CO 40 STS.

Repeat these two rows until piece is 9 inches or desired length, then knit 4 more rows.

Sew bottom and sides up. I made a twisted cord and threaded it through the first row under the garter st. rows.
Note from designer: This bag is small but it holds a lot and is perfect for the beach. Easy to stash under a towel, beach chair or in a locker.
