About the designer

I don’t know if I think outside the box, but I usually color outside the lines. I definitely have my own sense of style, and my own sense of wonder, and I hope it comes through in my designs.

A Day at the Beach

from Wild Talents Designs
(6) Name: 'Knitting : A Day at the Beach
A Day at the Beach A Weekend at the Dunes
A Day at the Beach A Day at the Beach

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • provisional cast-on
  • working flat and in the round
  • picking up and knitting from edge
  • basic increases/decreases

Pattern Description:

Who doesn't like spending a day at the beach? Lying back on the warm sand, while the waves lap gently on the shore . . .

This bag won't just let you carry everything you need for a day of leisure, it lets you carry the beach with you wherever you go!

A Day at the Beach starts with a garter stitch square for a base, then stitches are picked up around the edges, and the rest of the bag is worked in the round.

The lace pattern for the waves is both written and charted.

This pattern takes less than a full skein each of two colors of Knit Picks CotLin. In fact, if you want to make it in a single color, you can probably do it with one skein, but have a second one on hand just in case.
