What is the one thing thatmost beachy totes are missing, I asked myself one night while contemplating yet another fun meshy carry-all for myself. Why a solid pocket of course? But where would it go...Most traditional pocket placements would interfere with the meshygoodness of this staple. Why not put this pocket where a solid piece of fabric is desired! So I schemed up a mesh beachy bag with a nice solid bottom. Then added a second bottom inside to create a pocket! Even without securing this pocket with a zipper or button, it provides and excellent place to stash the phone and keys at your favorite summer watering hole (a bit more classy than just shoving them under the towel).
This pattern also includes a wonderful clutch purse to take the essentials along for dinner after a day at the beach.

There are a three obvious issues with this pattern that could be an issue to an inexperienced knitter. The first is with the stitch pattern listed as linen ridge stitch. The “right side” ends up on the inside of the bottom pocket. The next issue is that the directions say to bind off. The very next direction is to purl one row. There is no indication that you are to pick up stitches. The last issues is with the handle. The instructions say to slip the first stitch of every row on an i-cord. Can’t be done nor does it look from the picture that that is how the sample was made. I also have some issues with the design, but those are a matter of personal choice, so will not include them here.
