Summer Sandcastle

I’ve been down in NC for the past week visiting some college friends. The house they are renting is right near the beach, so I thought that I would bring a beach-themed craft to make while they were working.

I found this pattern via Club Crochet, but it was written by ravencraft_designs.

It was an easy project but it was made from 7 parts that had to be joined together. It could be made with only 2 towers, but I felt like a sandcastle needed the 4. It also has an optional drawbridge and some optional detail embroidery, both of which I skipped. It’s fairly small and fits in the palm of my hand!

That is so fun, and a beach memory “souvenir” you can bring with you.

Thanks, everyone! It was the one craft project I packed, knowing I’d be within a 2 minute walk to the beach. I didn’t have time to work on it until yesterday, when I got all of the parts stitched up. I assembled it this morning and made the flag- the flagpole is a toothpick.

It’s so itty-bitty! What size hook did you use?

It was worsted weight yarn, with a 4.0 mm hook. Easy to stitch!

This is so cute! I would be torn between keeping it as my souvenir and leaving it somewhere as themed found art for someone. Love it!

I was torn, for sure! I did end up taking it home with me, though. It’ll be a little model for my crochet club signups this fall!
