BYOB 2.0 - Bring Your Own Bags v2.0
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.
BYOB 2.0 Pattern:
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.
Now all you have to do is remember to take them with you! Put a few BYOB 2.0 bags and some linen carriers by the back door or in the car and then you will be sure to have them on hand when you head to the shops.
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.

Errata on Pg 6 of BYOB_2.0-v2.1-01JAN2015:
The 3rd line down read: “Wk 1 (3, 5) more rnds in patt as set.”
and it should have been: “Wk 1 (3, 5) more rnds in Seed St patt as set.”
This is now corrected in the current version, v2.2
