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

 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 my website. Click on the "Bags" section for further 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
