If you knit and crochet, you are likely to want to do it all year. That sense of satisfaction that comes from accomplishing something with your hands would be missed if you give it up when the warm weather comes. And, what would you do if you didn’t have knitting or crocheting to de-stress for months at a time?
I’ve searched through our selection of patterns to find a variety of summer totes that will keep your hands busy and your nerves calm while you travel or just relax on the porch or the beach this summer. They are all made with lighter weight yarns and can be finished quickly and given as gifts (or to yourself!)
These market bags and totes can be stuffed in a suitcase and used as a bag to carry your souvenirs and gifts after a trip, or you can take these sturdy bags to the grocery store and use them instead of disposable bags. They are lightweight and casual, so they’ll work with the relaxed style we all enjoy in the summer. Whether you take them to the beach, the store, or on a trip, you’ll find the perfect tote for every occasion.
