Beach Towel Crochet Pattern

Gauge and Swatch, Crochetville’s sheep and alpaca mascots, are enjoying their first trip to the beach. We are here in lovely Gulf Shores, Alabama, enjoying the sun and the surf. Although we made a mighty search through all the souvenir shops, we simply couldn’t find any beach towels that were just the right size for Gauge and Swatch. Thank goodness I brought a bunch of yarn with me, so I was able to quickly whip up a beach towel for each of them.
