In July, I posted about the original BYOB bag and two different colour variations: an autumnal colourway with lovely earthy tones, and a simple but effective two-tone variation worked in pinks, blues and white. Then last time, I explored some bags that were worked entirely in Seed Stitch, one of my favourite stitches.
The version I am featuring today is another solid-sided bag, but this time I have replaced the central mesh part of the bag pattern with Basketweave. This stitch is taken from our book Reversible Knitting Stitches and is a good-looking stitch with a lot of flexibility.
This is a good variation of the basic design as it is still quite flexible so can accommodate awkwardly-shaped items but gives just a little more support. Working a couple of these alongside the regular BYOB Bags would make a lovely co-ordinated set.
Please click here for more details about the BYOB pattern and have fun trying out some variations of your own.
For more information about our Reversible Knitting Stitches book, please click here. The book has includes details for more than 250 double-sided stitches and is available for instant download.
I'll be back next time with one more striped version of the bag, this time with Fibonacci stripes!
Until then – Happy Knitting!
