The beach was an influence in the color selection as well as its design in this crochet project. The ocean waves meeting the sandy beach simulated by the increase and decrease of row-colors. This cute trendy little bag to keep your daily make-up, pencils, valuables contained. The pouches dimensions are ca. 8 1/2 in. x 5 in. (ca. 21 cm x 13 cm).
This project is of easy difficulty level.
2 crochet thread cotton (size 3), in two colors (blue-green, gold)
1 crochet hook 4.25 mm (G-6)
1 zipper 7 in (18 cm) long (color camel)
1 sewing needle and thread (gold color)

sl st slip stitch
cs chain stitch
sc single crochet
Choose your own color combination. My stitches are tight, therefore the hook selection is larger then the recommended size for the threads.
Start your project with a slip-knot and chain 40 stitches (in blue-green).
- 1st round: 1 cs (chain stitch), 3 sc (single crochet) in 40th cs, continue with sc in each cs, in 1st cs make 3 sc on left loop-side and 3 sc on right loop-side, continue with sc in each cs, in 40th cs make 3 sc and connect with a sl st in 1st sc.
- 2nd to 36th round: 1 cs, from now on 1 sc in each sc, and connect rounds with sl st in 1st sc. Except change thread colors in:
- 15th round gold,
- 16th to 18th round blue-green,
- 19th to 20th round gold,
- 21st to 22nd round blue-green,
- 23rd to 25th round gold,
- 26th round blue-green,
