Who doesn’t like the nautical theme during the summer. It is a theme that just says vacation. Well here is a fun crochet beach bag to help give you the vacation vibes.
I was lucky to have two Uncles that had condos on the water. My Uncle Ken had a place on Table Rack Lake that we would visit now and again. His places was decorated with anchors and light houses and all the sailing motifs.
My Uncle Randy had a shared condo in San Destin Florida and it a collection of sea shells, anchors, rope and fish nets. Every year we would visit during a big fishing tournament.
There is nothing that reminds me of my childhood vacations like nautical themed items. The Yacht Club Crochet Beach Bag just leads me down memory lane back to those childhood vacations on the beach and spending time with family.

Of course it wouldn’t be a good beach bag if we didn’t make it out of cotton and I am continuing to use Red Heart’s Scrubby Smoothie for it’s bright rich colors.
Now I know what you are thinking. This bag looks complex, but I promise it is actually quite easy. We will be making a basic double crochet bag with a mesh bag on top. Our very last row will joined these two bags together and we will tie ourselves some handles with a piece of thick cotton rope. Let’s get started.

– Do not count the turning chain as a Stitch.
– Written in US terms.
– Pattern is made in two part then crocheted together.
– I work the first stitch of every row into the same stitch we slip stitched to join the last row.
Solid Bag Base:
Note: Do not turn at the end of the rows.
R1: Dc in the third Ch from the hook, Work a Dc into every Ch across. Working down the other side of the Ch, Work a Dc into every Ch on the opposite side of the work. Slst to the first Dc. (130sts)

Mesh Top Bag:
Special Stitch: Quadruple Treble – This is similar to a double crochet just more loops. – Wrap the yarn around the hook until you have 6 loops on the hook. Insert you hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull the loop through the stitch. You will now have 7 loops on the hook. *Yarn over and pull the first loop through the next 2 loops* repeat from *to* until you only have one loop on your hook. Your Quadruple treble is complete.
Ch 35, Mark the last St with a Stitch Marker.
R1: Ch20, Slst to the Ch with the Stitch Marker, *Ch 12, Sk 7 Chs, Slst to the next Ch* repeat from *to* a total of 8 times.
Your last Slst should have been to the last on the foundation Ch. Working down the other side of the Ch. *Ch 12, Sk 7 Chs, Slst to the next Ch* repeat from *to* a total of 7 times. Ch 6, work a Quadtr st into the same Ch as the Stitch Marker. (16 Chain Spaces)
Use your stitch marker to mark the top of the Quadtr.
R2-12: Turn your work, *Ch 12, Slst to the next Ch space* repeat from *to* a total of 15 times. Ch6, work a Quadtr St into the top of the Quadtr of the last Row. (16 Chain Spaces)
Slip your solid bag into the mesh bag and line up the bottom corners. Start row 13 by Single Crocheting into the Sc that lines up with the last St of Row 12.
R13. Work a Sc a stitch from the solid bag, Work a Sc into the next 6 Sts, Work a Sc into the next Ch space AND the next St. *Work a Sc into the next 7 Sts, Work a Sc into the next Ch Space AND the next St.* repeat from *to* a total of 14 times, Work a Sc into the last 8 Sts. Slst to the first Sc. Fasten off and weave in your ends. (130 Sts)
Take some extra yarn and a yarn needle and sew a small stitch in the bottom corners of the bag to secure the two bags together.
Add Your Rope Handle
Cut two 33” pieces of rope. Push each end of the rope through one of the chain spaces created in row 23 and tie a knot. Repeat for the other side of the bag.
Now your bag is complete. You make need to adjust a few Slip Stitches in the mesh bags and you are ready to rock your Nautical look.
