Hook It Yourself
Isn't this bag amazing? The link doesn't take you to a pattern but the idea of using the Sirdar Beachcomber for a beach bag is brilliant. With it being 100% cotton it would be perfect. It would dry quickly if it got a little wet and by lining it you would get a sturdy bag to fill with all the beach necessities. You can crochet or knit something very similar and even use a contrasting or co-ordinating cotton yarn to make it bigger. Line it with something really bright to make it unique
Sisters Hat pattern by Janet Gallagher
This gorgeous hat is inspired by the Cascade Mountain Range in the Pacific Northwest. It's an adult size and uses approx 100yrds meaning you can make more than one project if you decided to use the Sirdar Beachcomber. This is a free pattern and recommends you use a 4.5mm pair of needles
Starry, Starry Night Shawl pattern by Elisabeth Davis de Herraiz
A crocheted shawl that can be adapted to use with any yarn and in any size. It is a paid pattern but is very well written. I would recommend not adding the beads if you make this using the Sirdar Beachcomber. The slub nature of the yarn doesn't lend itself very well to being threaded with beads, plus it really wouldn't need them. The yarn would do all the talking for you!
Desert Winds Triangle Scarf
So this pattern was created using an aran yarn whereas the Sirdar Beachcomber is a DK but it would work beautifully. The joy of this pattern is that it would be easy enough to lengthen the length of the scarf. I would recommend using all 3 balls of yarn provided in your box and use a 4mm hook
There isn't a pattern with this link but you can easily create a kindle or tablet cover using the Sirdar Beachcomber by either knitting or crocheting. Just chain or cast on your required number of stitches and off you go using your preferred stitch until it reaches the length you need. Decrease when you need to, add a button and there you have a fabulously quick project! You can even do this in the round or by creating a long rectangle and sewing up the sides.
