I love all those knitted and crocheted market shopping bags I’ve seen around, but I wanted something that will still leave my hands free.

The drop stitch pattern and the cotton yarn means the bag has some give and will stretch to accommodate your shopping or your beach essentials

The webbing straps won’t stretch out of shape, even with all your summer market purchases on board, and also add a nice contrast to the yarn.

As for the name? Traeth is Welsh for beach.

NOTE: The Inside Loop website will cease to exist sometime around the end of January 2010 so I have uploaded the pattern to Ravelry
