PATTERN DETAILS

I divide my time between southern California, the island of Kauai and Barcelona ... so I need a durable cotton beach/pool tote and hat. The tote is an easy knit: it's knitted flat and the side edges are seamed together. The edging and handles are I-cords. I've attached a handy plastic key ring. Add a floppy cotton hat that doesn't mind a little sun and water and you're ready for fun in the sun. The hat is a simple design knitted in the round and the Sea Star is an easy to knit but if you prefer to add an embellishment of your own design, go for it! I hope you'll treat yourself or somebody you love to my cotton knitted tote and hat ensemble. If you have any questions as you work through the pattern, just contact me. I want you to have an enjoyable, successful experience and I'm always eager to help. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Cast on, knit, purl, increase one stitch, bind off Single crochet seaming (instructions are included in pattern directions) Make an I-cord (instructions for an unattached and attached I-cord are included in pattern directions) Optional: Do the Kitchener stitch (instructions are included in pattern directions) Pick up stitches Knit 2 together decrease Slip a stitch GAUGE Tote: In seed stitch, 3 stitches = 1 inch Hat: In stockinette stitch, 5 stitches = 1 inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Tote: Approximately 12" long by 13" wide when empty.

Follow my blog at: http://lenaslegacyhandknits.wordpress.com I am certified as a Level 1 Master Hand Knitter by The Knitting Guild Association. My grandmother Lena taught me to knit when I was 4 years old and told me that a lifetime of knitting pleasure was her legacy to me. I love to design and knit and enter my work in competitions. I've won numerous awards and ribbons over the years and that's a lot of fun, but the greatest pleasure is the actual creative process. I specialize in Beginner and Intermediate level designs that teach new skills and promote excitement for the art that is Knitting. I think new knitters should have the opportunity to work with a well-written design that reinforces their current skills, teaches them new skills and gets a "WOW, you made that?!!?" response when showing off their completed project.
