Here is a free pattern for a fun tote bag that is perfect for taking to the beach or pool. The main portion of the bag features a square mesh pattern that will allow wet towels and swimsuits to breathe. It is also great for carrying toys, sunscreen and beach reads. This crochet pattern is fairly easy and quick to work up. I hope you will enjoy it!

Love this easy to follow pattern! Works up quickly. The bag ends up to be very big!
Loved makibg this for myself! As i don't like when my bags have 2 steaps, i changed it up and love the way it turned out!
This beach bag is huge, which is a good thing..it holds 4 beach towels, sunscreen, sun hats, beach toys...and with room to spare! The cotton yarn lets me throw it in the washing machine, without any worries. The open squares keeps air flowing around wet towels. So glad I made it!
I have made MANY of these bags now. I give them as gifts, so I keep one or two made up in advance. My children wanted me to make each teacher a bag as an end-of-the-school-year gift, so I had to make some up. The teachers love them, and I like that we gave them something they'll never get from anyone else. Now, if only we can talk the designer into making a beach cover-up to match, I'll get started on one to match my bag...
This pattern is very simple to follow and works up very quickly. It's quite rewarding to start seeing the mesh pattern emerge so quickly. Be aware that the bag ends up much larger than you might expect. It's pretty ridiculously large, actually!
Loved every minute of making this bag! (: Great pattern, definitely recommend giving it a try. It is not too difficult and you will end up with a great item that will receive lots of compliments! :D
I love the clever way the mesh is done so it looks doubled. Very inventive pattern!
I had so much fun making this bag for my daughter's birthday gift. She and every one else love it. The pattern is very easy to follow.
