The BYOB Market Bag is a stylish shoulder bag just perfect for your local Farmers' Market. It is a variation of the "BYOB 2.0 - Bring Your Own Bag!" pattern, available separately, and was originally worked alongside a series of Tutorial / Knit-along blogposts. The pattern includes links to the posts so that you can follow them as you work this pattern.
The bag is worked in a single colour and features a long central openwork panel to give extra flexibility and two shoulder-length handles with a button detail. The handles can be left as plain knitted straps or could be backed with fabric or woven bands for extra strength.
