Quick and Functional

The Dockside Bag was actually designed using a stitch pattern similar to my Any Way Skinny Wrap pattern! I loved the stitch pattern so much I knew I needed to adapt it to a bigger project that would really show off the design!

The bag is worked bottom up, first in rows and then in rounds. I designed it with a flat bottom so there would be more area space inside, making a great bag for the beach or shopping! The Body of the bag is worked in a 4 row repeat.

You can use any sort of colour combos you like, or even a gorgeous solid. You can see some of the testers colours below.

The Tester Pictures

My testers ROCKED this pattern test! I just love how they look with different colour combinations! Some of the yarns they used were: I Love This Cotton, Lion Brand 24/7 cotton, Lily Sugar and Cream, and Bernat Handicrafter Cotton.

Aren’t they just fabulous?!

The Materials

Dockside Bag Free Crochet Pattern

For this project I was after a durable, soft and quality cotton to hold up to good use. The lovely gang over at *Wecrochet kindly supplied the amazing *Dishie Yarn for the Dockside Bag. This yarn is amazing and if you have yet to try it out you for sure should!

I also used my trusty *Furls Odyssey! The Turquoise hook let me have that matchy-match feel I just love!

Row 50: Sc in each st across, ch1 (7).

My base was approx. 13″ long unstretched.

Continuing from the ch1 of your last row

Rnd 1: Sc in the end of each row going down the side of the base, 2 sc in the corner st, rotate work to continue along the starting ch, sc in each starting ch across, 2 sc in the corner st, continue sc in the end of each row along the opposite side, 2 sc in the corner st, sc in each st across the top, 2 sc in the corner, join with a slst to the first st, ch1 (116).

Strap

Make 2

Row 1: Sc in the second ch from hook, and each ch across, ch1, turn (7).

Row 2 – Row 90: Sc in each st across, ch1, turn (7).

After 90 rows sample strap was approx. 23″, unstretched. You can adjust strap length by adding or subtracting rows.

Fold the strap in half lengthwise, matching up both sides. Join yarn to one end and slst along the open end to hold closed, tie off and tuck in ends.

Attaching Straps

Lay the bag flat and count approx. 12 sts in from each side, place stitch marker. Repeat on other side of bag. Using long tail on end of the straps, sew onto the outside of the bag. I lined up the bottom of the strap just above rnd 44, and the inside of the strap with the stitch marker.
