  1. Take around 40 plastic bags that are clean and 'not' made of degradable plastic. Degradable bags are often marked proudly as such, and will disintegrate after a few months. Cut the seam off the bottom of a bag and remove the handles. Flatten out your bag and cut it in a long spiral from top to bottom, into one long strip 3cm (1in) wide. See this artice for more information on preparing the bag prior to knitting.2
  2. Cast on as many stitches as you want with needles around size 3-4mm, until your work is as wide as you want your bag to be.
     
  3. 3
    Knit until your work is twice as long as you want your bag to be. If you get to the end of a piece of "yarn", tie the end to the end of another piece and continue to knit. (Alternatively, you can knit with two strands for a few inches and then drop the old "yarn" and continue with the new.)
     
  4. 4
    Cast off and fold your work in half. Sew up the sides of your bag with more strips of plastic - use a crochet hook, as it won't make as many holes in the existing strips as a yarn needle will.
