Walk Along the Shore Mat

This picture of the Walk Along the Shore Crochet mat has been taken looking across the mat from the bottom left hands corner towards the top right hand corner. The design has three white beach huts on a background of sand, sea and sky. There is a light blue and white border around the mat.

The Walk Along the Shore Mat was my first published crochet pattern. I didn’t take the easy route and start with a simple scarf!

I have some amazing childhood memories of walking along the beach, both in the United Kingdom and in Europe. Vast expanses of sand that seemed to go on forever and the cool water splashing on my feet. 

Along the edge of many of these beaches were beach huts. The designs varied so much from place to place but their charm remained the same. I am not sure why, but little beach huts make me happy!

Bright colours, plain colours, stripes… People really seem to express their personalities through their beach huts!

With these memories, the Walk Along the Shore Mat was born!

I intentionally left the colour scheme of this design neutral. The plain black and white is a little nod to the white beach huts with blue doors and roofs that I saw in Normandy, France. However, you can let can make your beach huts as bright and colourful as you wish!
