Knitting Project Bags Buyers Guide

Knitting project bags for all tastes

Most knitters will agree to the necessity of a good knitting project bag! These bags should be able to hold your WIP (work in progress) and, of course, all your knitting notions so that everything is ready and tidy when it’s time to knit.

There are so many cute, practical, funny, large, and small project bags available on the market that all fulfills different needs.

On one side there are simple tote bags with funny prints on them that can hold your project, on the sofa, or when you’re on the go.

On the other hand, you can also go for a big bag with a lot of space for multiple projects, all your notions, and holes to pull yarn through for knitting with several colors at the time.

In between these two extremes, there are also bags with a few pockets and features.

So, let’s figure out what you want your knitting project bag to do for you, and which of these bags will best fulfill your needs!
