A different take on the string bag - this one uses approximately 20 plastic (nonbiodegradeable!) grocery bags.

Gauge is not important for this project.

I like to think of myself as a good steward of the earth. When I go shopping, I try to use canvas bags to cut down on the number of those cheap plastic bags that I accumulate. But still, I have an ever expanding bag of bags in my pantry. Every so often we foist off these bags on friends and family that have dogs but this year I decided to reduce, reuse, and recycle those bags into a new grocery bag.

This pattern was originally available via MagKnits. It has been radically reworked and is now available in my Ravelry store as a PDF.
