Many crocheters and knitters use project bags to store their ongoing work at home or to carry them to knitting cafes, commute, or, to knit outside.
There are a lot of different bags to choose from out there with different functions and styles.
Some of them are more for storing your WIP:s at home or maybe to toss into another bag to take with. Others are made for you to carry and knit at the same time.
This list presents a selection of the bags that are, in my opinion, the best project bags available online right now!

Carry your WIP:s in a cute pink backpack
If you often take your knit or crochet projects with you when you are out and about this may be the bag for you!
A backpack is easy to carry with you and leaves your hand free. This backpack also has grommets so your yarn can be safely put away on your back and you can still knit while walking, waiting in line, etc, this is so smart!
And of course, it has a ton of pockets to store a water bottle, spare needles/hooks, and all your notions!
The backpack is available at Amazon in pink, black, grey, and a white and beige pattern. If you have Prime you even get free delivery. (And if you don’t you can sign up here for Prime Video and get free 2-day shipping on this bag and millions of other items!)
