So this is crochet video tutorial number 4! They’re trickier to put together than just my usual chats but there’s still a casual approach, which I prefer.
I decided to make a small version of my crochet beach bag for two reasons: one, I was curious about how it would turn out, and two, it would take an eternity to make and film the big version for a tutorial! I love what happened!! It’s such a cute little bag. Perfect for kids and perfect for those wondering what to do with that colour change yarn cake they’ve got stashed away.
Please take a trip to YouTube via this picture! Go on, give it a click!
I made the bag and poms poms and have just over 20grams left. The cake I used was Bernat Pop (140g) in Paisley Pop. My hook size was a 4.5mm but you might want to go down to a 4mm if you have loose tension.
There are some changes. The bigger bag used two 200g Caron cakes and has another increase round. The handles are also slightly different. Check out my blog post about that one here.

The changes? Well, this one only works up to Round 6 and then Round 6 is repeated 13 times. The next row after is half trebles. The handle has a couple of changes too: chain 71, and only work one row of treble clusters after the dc row. (remember that these are UK terms).
This bag measures approximately 28cm/11inches across and is 23cm/9inches deep. The handles (including the ends tucked inside) are about 47cm/18.5inches long.
Fancy making one? Let me know! And don’t forget to use #zeensandroger over on Instagram!
