Bags of Bags!

I wanted to put a page together with links to all the BYOB - Bring Your Own Bag! variations I have been blogging about recently. Keep up the good work by knitting your own bags and say "No Plastic Bags for Me!" at the checkout.

Click on the photos for more information: 

Centre: BYOB - two bags using different MC yarns 

Centre: Basketweave variation in blue/pink and white 
R: BYOB's in "Fired Earth" colourway 

L: Broad striped variation 
R: Purple BYOB and Fibonacci variation

L: New BYOB 2.0 pattern 
R: BYOB 2.0 pattern now with four sizes

Above: BYOB Market Bag knit-along blogpost series 

Set of bags ready for the supermarket with: 
a linen bag 
a bottle carrier 
1 or 2 solid-sided basketweave bags 
and a BYOB or two in various sizes 

I usually put several of these "sets" of bags together ready to grab as I leave the house then I have everything I need when I arrive at the shops. Have fun making your own bag variations and then you can say with pride: 

"No plastic bags for me!" 

Download the latest version of this pattern, BYOB 2.0 from the "Bag Pattern" page on my website. Here you will see details of this pattern together with information about the long-handled BYOB Market Bag pattern, and four linen-lined bags, the Southampton Collection

Happy Knitting!

  1. I love this. LOVE it.

    I was talking to a woman who works with children at a group home. She said that, when they come into care, after being removed from their homes, their things come with them in garbage bags. When I saw this it gave me an idea.

    I'm going to try to knit one a month and give to Social Services for those children, At least each can have something colorful to call her own. And it ain't a garbage bag. Thanks!

  2. That's a brilliant idea, Sue. They can keep their teddies in their own bag. Moi x
