Pattern Description:

A Dominican beach, a glass of red wine and the love and company of your other half.
The foamy little waves colour the pink shiny sand into a creamy beige. Algae complete the scenery like a diamond necklace completes a stylish evening dress.
Red, orange, pink, a touch of mauve and a hint of green... the sun is setting.
Close your eyes, can you picture my evening?

The N2L Shellfish Backpack Keyring

A very practical keyring, a functional backpack and a cute item to have.

This is not your usual Keyring, it is an actual mini backpack. The finished product measures 10 cm/ 7.5 cm and it can fit all sorts of individual "must haves": a full size lipstick, an inhaler, a lighter, your hotel magnetic card, several folded notes etc.
Cherry on top, you can use the straps as a belt loop.
Personally, I would attach it to my bathing suit.

It is a fairly easy project that you could finish in a weekend.

I hope you will enjoy knitting it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
