Hi everyone!🙂

Today I'm sharing my Arcade Market / Beach Tote Bag crochet pattern with you. It's perfect for market trips, beach trips, day trips, etc. 
This pattern is written for those with basic crochet knowledge.To make this tote bag, you should be familiar with basic crochet stitches and terminology. You should know how to crochet in the round as well as how to work in back and forth rows. 
I used Worsted / Aran weight (#4) cord type yarn and a 5 mm (H) crochet hook.

You will find the written pattern and a video tutorial below.
