BYOB - Pretty in Pink (and Blue)

BYOB – Bring Your Own Bag knitting pattern by Moira Ravenscroft, Wyndlestraw Designs

The BYOB - Bring Your own Bag pattern can look very different when it is worked in different colours. My original bag was worked in a Summer Limes colourway, with a fresh lime green main colour teamed with blue and purple contrast colour stripes. 

Then in my last blogpost I showed the bags worked with more earthy tones in a Fired Earth Colourway – just perfect for the autumn. In this post I am featuring some bags which have been worked in just two colours, with a pretty berry pink or gentle blue contrasting with bright white.

In the blue bag pictured above, I worked three narrow bands of white in the lower Seed Stitch section (3 rounds in white with 5 rounds of blue between). Then the rest of the pattern is the same up to the top band, where I again used the main blue colour to replace the second contrast colour in the original pattern.

The pink bags are worked in a similar way, replacing the second contrast colour in the pattern with the main colour of pink. The result is simple yet stylish and also involves less left-over yarn – always a bonus!

Next time, I'll be looking at working a variation of the pattern with broad stripes of colour instead. 

Until then – Happy Knitting!
