Strand.ding is a colorful shoulder bag. The one that makes me dream of sitting by the sea (blue bottom), looking up at the lighthouse at the end of the bay (white/red stripes) and enjoying the sun (yellow) with my head in my neck.
The bag is knitted in one piece. Begin in rounds at the bottom of the bag. Then the desired length is knitted and with short rows the strap is formed.
The beach bag can be knitted in one color or perfectly from yarn leftovers. However, you should use a yarn that does stretch too much.
