So here’s a beach bag ready for the summer ahead. This is Anna’s Nokomis Beach Bag, named for one of our favourite local beaches. Nokomis Beach is usually wonderfully quiet, and you can just sit and watch the sunset while children swim in the ocean or hunt for shark’s teeth along the shoreline.
Anna has perfectly captured the essence of the beach in this striped bag, with colours inspired by the sandy coast, turquoise sea and clear blue sky.
Anna has also added long canvas straps and a fold-under base to give a firm construction – well able to carry all the essentials for a day at the beach.
I am totally in love with this bag and wanted to squeeze it into our Reversible Knitting Stitches E-book. We had a few other new project ideas we wanted to add in as well, so I have just uploaded a new version of the E-book onto my website today! We hope you enjoy seeing all these new ideas for projects you can make with reversible stitches.
Oh and we’re always on the look-out for new stitches, so if you see we’ve missed a favourite stitch of ours from the book, do please let us know so we can include it in a future update!

Until next time - Happy Beach Knitting!
