From Pattern Notes:

From “Knitty Gritty” episode DKNG-105

“What do you do with mountains of spare plastic shopping bags? Recycle them, of course. Simply collect the bags, cut them into strips and knit. This knitted carryall is such an easy project once you’re used to working with the different textures of plastic. The simple handle is made from leather throng -- looped through the plastic and knotted -- to give some needed contrast to the disposable plastic. Use the bag for storage just about anywhere in the home or garden (even in the kitchen as a container for collecting other plastic bags). Experiment with different colors, try regular or random stripes or use just a single color for a chic monochromatic look.”
