The BYOB Market Bag is a stylish shoulder bag which is perfect for a visit to your local Farmers Market. It features a central openwork panel for flexibility and a sturdy base so small items don't slip through. The bag is worked in a crisp cotton yarn in a single colour and has two shoulder-length handles finished with a button detail.
The pattern includes full stitch charts, line-by-line instructions and tutorial blogpost links for more information on working each section of the bag.
