What to Look for in Project Bags for Knitting and Crochet

Technically, of course, you can stick your crochet project or knitting project into ant tote, large purse, or canvas bag. However, that’s not what’s best for your project. If you want to keep your yarn from tangling or snagging, have your hooks and needles nicely organized, and everything kept secure, then you really need to choose project bags specifically designed for crafters.

Here are some of the things that you want to look for when choosing project bags for knitting and crochet:

  • Knitting Project Bag Size: Most people want large crochet and knitting project bags. You want to hold everything for one project in one bag. However, you may also want separate smaller bags for crochet hooks, knitting needles, and other notions. That way you can move the tools from one bag to another easily as needed.
  • Material: Many crochet and knitting project bags are made from fabric, which is fun because you can choose from a variety of different prints. Plus these are usually washable (and sometimes reversible). However, you can find leather craft project bags as well as bags made from unique materials such as silicone. Whatever you choose, look for durability.
  • Pockets: You want a project bag with a lot of pockets in varied sizes. Ideally, one of these pockets will specifically hold crochet hooks and / or knitting needles in place. You might want a bag with clear pockets to easily see what’s stored inside. Make sure there’s a big section for yarn, smaller pockets for tools, and perhaps an additional pocket for your personal necessities so you don’t have to carry an extra purse on top of your project bag.
  • Where and How the Bag is Made: Many people want crochet / knitting project bags that are themselves handcrafted. Of course, Etsy and artisan sellers are great resources where you can support small businesses and independent makers who sell these types of bags. You may want a bag that’s felted or woven, as that will complement your crafty style. People also sometimes want to make sure that the bags are made in the US. Those details are included in the knitting project bags roundup below.
  • Bonus details: Some of the other things that you might want to look for when choosing your project bag include grommets that allow you to slide yarn through easily, a no-snag design (such as a nylon cord zipper or drawstring), and pockets that all close to keep the materials in place.

Recently the Unapologetic Knitter, Meghan Schmaltz wrote a helpful article on storing and organizing your yarn stash. It was filled with tips to organize and tame your stash so that you can easily find the yarn you want to use for your next knitting project. Here it is: How Do I Store my Yarn Stash.

Now that you have tips and tricks to get your stash under control, how do you organize your knitting projects? Do you have them in plastic bags all over the house? Shoved together in one big bag so that you don’t know what’s going on with any particular project?

Today let’s talk about how to keep your projects organized and some ideas for organizing projects based on size or where you knit.

Knit, Crochet, and Sew: Our Favorite Project Bags for On-the-Go Stitching

A good project bag can work wonders for your stitching game. Not only does one allow you to keep all of your knitting and crochet supplies—think: scissors, tapestry needles, stitch markers, and more—handy and organized, but you can also take it with you wherever you go. So, what elements are essential to a well-designed project bag? "For starters, it should be big enough for your tools to fit in but also comfortable for you to carry anywhere," says Alberto Bravo of We Are Knitters. "It should also be made of a durable material that won't puncture easily and that has enough compartments to organize your tools."

If you're in a crafting bind and don't have a project bag on hand, Bravo says there are a few do-it-yourself style measures you can take. For example, in lieu of stitch markers, he says you can use "wire or leftover pieces of yarn to tie around stitches or needles." No ruler or measuring tape in your purse? No problem. Bravo says you can use your own bare hands to measure materials in a pinch. "Measure the palms of your hands at home so you can use them as a reference when gauging samples on the go," he says. "You can also use pencils as an auxiliary needle and your phone as a notebook."

Ready to get your hands on a reliable project bag you can travel with, too? From foldable totes to bucket bags, here are several styles that will make knitting and crocheting, on the fly, a breeze.

20 of the best knitting bags and organisers

We’ve all been there: you have five minutes to leave the house and you’re frantically scrabbling around for a knitting project you can work on while you’re out. Where are the needles? Will one ball of yarn be enough? Did you remember the tape measure?

If, like ours, your knits live in a heap next to your favourite comfy chair rather than being neatly tidied away, you need to get yourself a knitting bag. With their specially designed pockets for holding needles and notions, knitting storage bags will help you get organised – and mean you always have a portable project to hand.

To help you choose the right knitting bag for you we’ve sorted them into three categories: knitting storage bags (with space for tools, yarn and works-in-progress), knitting tote bags (great for individual projects), and knitting needle organisers (to keep your craft space, or your other knitting bags, tidy).
