BYOB 2.0 - Bring Your Own Bag!
from Wyndlestraw Designs Follow

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 have a shaped base for easy loading at the checkout, a sturdy lower section to prevent items falling out and a mesh central panel for flexibility. The handles feature a comfy grip and the bags are worked in a crisp cotton yarn which holds its shape well even after multiple uses.
