Learn to make an open mesh bag for the beach, or to put your crochet projects and yarn into. Bring your own materials. Choose any two complementary or contrasting colors of your choice. Think summer colors--for beginners, we would suggest avoiding dark colors. If you cannot find cotton yarn, then get acrylic yarn. Avoid stretchy yarns

Supplies needed:

  • #4 (Worsted Wt.) 100% cotton yarn (1 skein color A; 1 skein color B)
  • #J crochet hook
