Summer is upon us and there is no better way to get away from the heat and enjoy the sun than a day at the beach. The music of the waves, the fruity cocktails, the fun in the sand, and the display of beachwear are but a few of the reasons we all like our sunny days near the sea or the ocean.
As we are also passionate about knitting, I thought a quick list of free patterns for beach related knits would help us all. Nothing like a colorful tote or a quirky hat to fuel our passion and allow us to express our own style! Here goes, a selection for all your beachwear knitting needs, all free, all waiting for you to knit them!
For your head
Stay stylish and safe from too much sun!
This a beautiful and lightweight sun hat, also relatively easy to knit.
2. Colorful bands
Nothing like the beach breeze to mess up your hairdo. The Three Beach Bands are an easy to knit solution to that problem. They also just happen to be gorgeous!
Beach bags and totes
Going to the beach implies carrying a lot! Your book or kindle, sun lotion, money, other cosmetic products, a wrap or a sarong, your hat, your phone…. See where I’m going? Here are a few bag and tote designs to help you with that.
3. Chippzan’s Beach Bag
It’s colorful, it’s stretchy, and it only takes a few hours to knit!
4. Wave Beach Bag
This one is a bit sturdier, perfect if you’re carrying things that need to be kept safe during your day at the beach
5. Not a Sandy Bottom
Yes, sand getting everywhere is a problem for us all. This particular knitted beach bag solves that particular problem.
Wraps, Sarongs, and Beach Parties
This is a swimsuit cover up that not only is perfect to wear at the beach, it is also easy to knit while you’re lounging in the sun.
7. Playa Beach Cover Up
While it is a swimsuit cover up, to me this looks perfect for a beach party! Well, if it’s the beach party that comes with a nice fire, otherwise you might get cold.
8. Beach Dress for stylish little girls
If your daughter, niece, little sister or cousin is joining you at the beach, she should have her own knitted dress for the occasion.
9. Knitted Sarong for Summer
It’s colorful and sexy, and not very hard to knit. This sarong is just perfect!
And a little fun!
10. Mini octopus
I find octopi funny and sweet. So getting your own mini octopus to remind you of the beach or to have as a toy to distract children sounded like a good idea 😀
