Nautical stripes in a classic palette make this tote perfect for
accessorizing on ship or shore. Its roomy interior provides ample space for stowing beach reads and other summer essentials. A pocket on the tote’s front adds extra storage and a splash of color.

The tote is worked in joined single crochet rnds around a rectangular base. The alternating striped pattern is accented with a single band of a third color on the tote’s top edge. Cotton worsted weight yarn worked with a smaller than typically recommended hook creates the tote’s sturdy fabric.
