We are all aware of the need to “reduce, re-use and recycle” especially when it comes to plastic bags, yet millions of these are still used every year. However, we knitters have solutions! Using the skills of our hands we can make bags that are not only functional but decorative and long-lasting too.

The BYOB 2.0 pattern includes instructions for four different sized bags, including an extra-small size perfect for Junior shoppers - after all you can never be too young to start saving the planet! The bags are worked in a crisp cotton yarn which holds its shape well even after multiple uses.

Difficulty: Intermediate

Formats available:
The pattern is available in two formats ready for printing onto US/Letter-sized paper or UK/A4 stationery. Please select the file you wish to download from the two available.

Blog Tutorial / Knitalong:
There is a separate pattern for a BYOB Market Bag which is supported by a Tutorial/Knit-along. Please click here for the first blogpost in the series and then follow the links at the end of each post.

Stitch Pattern
