Spiral stow away shopper
I love a string bag, I don't love getting one out of my handbag and finding keys and headphones tangled in it. This nifty little bag folds away in to its self to keep it from getting tangled on the contents of your bag.
Any weight yarn can be used really but I do recommend a cotton yarn for lack of stretch.
