Pattern Update:
Please note that there is an updated version of this pattern, the BYOB 2.0, now with instructions for 4 different sized bags.

There is also a long-handled version, the BYOB Market Bag which is supported by a series of blogposts as a Tutorial/Knit-along.

Pattern information:
Linen bags are great for carrying bottles and heavy items home from the supermarket, but for the bulky awkwardly-shaped items you can’t beat a stretchy knitted bag.

These bags have a wide shaped base making it easy to load items at the check-out, and the lower striped Seed Stitch section ensures that small items will not drop out. The central area features a flexible openwork design which is quick and easy to work. An upper handle worked in Seed Stitch with a separately worked hand grip is soft to hold and has extra reinforced stitches at the edges for strength.

Stitch Pattern
This design uses a reversible stitch pattern from the book: Reversible Knitting Stitches - A Sourcebook of 200 Double-Sided Stitch Patterns by Moira Ravenscroft & Anna Ravenscroft. For more details, please click here.
