Nautical Tote Knit Pattern





A simple tote with a touch of lace makes for a beautiful addition to your bag collection. With signature nautical colors, this bag is sure to catch everyone's eye. 

The Nautical Tote is a beautiful and simple bag that includes both knit and crochet. The body of this tote is knit while the handles are crocheted. The body includes some eyelet v-stitches to make it stand out a little from just a plain colorblock tote.
