Crochet Beach Bag: A Beginner Bag Project

Even if you’re like me and don’t live anywhere near the beach, you’ll find about a million handy uses for this crochet beach bag.

It’s great for kids, camping, barbecuing and pick nicking. It will also make a great craft bag for all your yarn and sewing projects. Even better if you plan on crocheting at the beach!

This crochet beach bag is a super easy, beginner friendly project that works up fast. If you use a beautiful yarn for this one, no one will believe how easy it was to make. I used Alize Bahar in color code 3673, which doesn’t sound nearly as beautiful as it looks. I love Alize and always recommend them. Great product, price and service.

If you’re looking for a more serious bag project, like a back pack or a purse, check out my previous posts. I didn’t put a lining in this bag since it’s meant for the outdoors, but if you’d like to put a lining in, I’ll put the video tutorial tutorial below.

Crochet Beach Bag Tutorial 👇🏻

If you want to add a lining for your crochet bag, here’s the video tutorial for the method I like to use 👇🏻

Crochet Beach Bag Pattern

Note : We ‘re going to work in spiral so make sure to place the stitch marker into the first st in each round.

Round 1 : ch 71,  1 hdc into second ch from hook, 1 hdc into each ch across, 1 hdc into each ch on the other side across. Total of 140 hdc

Round 2 : 1 hdc into each st around. Total of 140 hdc

Round 3 – Round 44 REP Round 2

The end of round 44, cut the yarn and weave all the ends.


Cut the cotton cord into two 30″ lengths (If you want longer or shorter straps, feel free to adjust the lengths).

Lay the bag flat and run your cord through from the inside to the outside. I placed mine about 3″ from the side and 1.5″ from the top, but you can play around with the placement. Tie a knot in the ends. We’re lacing the cord between the stitches, and since we used a larger hook, you can always change the strap placement later on the same way as before.

Repeat on the opposite end of the bag, then turn the bag over and repeat the same process for the other side. Check pictures A and B below.

Congratulations on your new crochet beach bag! It’s a super easy project, so don’t forget to make some for your friends and relatives.
