The Lakeside Tote

YAY summer is just about here! I love being outdoors during summer, whether it's for a picnic in the park, shopping the farmers' market, crocheting by the lake, heading to the pool or attending festivals. These activities inspired my newest pattern, The Lakeside Tote.

The Lakeside Tote

The name came from an Instagram follower. I'm not the best at naming patterns, so I asked for help and offered a little giveaway for a name. The winner was The Lakeside Tote. How perfect since I live by Lake Erie! So a little shout out to @teapraycrochet on Instagram, thank you for this awesome name!

This bag is a great size for toting around this summer. It's not too light, not too heavy, beautiful and sturdy! I have incorporated the double crochet bolster stitch in the design along with the criss cross stitch and my favorite half double crochet stitch.

I had a few testers work on the pattern before release and the results were amazing!

Pattern is written in US terms and includes photos and a video tutorial on the double crochet bolster stitch and the criss cross stitch. The Lakeside Tote pattern is now available in my Etsy Shop and Raverly.
