The Best Knitting Bags Ever

All knitters are not created equal. Some practical souls prefer form over function. Some are the image of fashion, and demand a stylish knitting bag. A good knitting bag keeps a knitter organised and never far from a knitting project. It can be both functional and attractive.

High Fashion

The Suzannah Knitting and Crochet bag by Offhand Designs looks like a large and stylish handbag. Handmade in San Francisco, the Suzannah boasts four internal pockets and four inside pouches and is large enough to hold a sweater project and all required tools.


The Swift by Tom Bihn is made with knitters' practicalities in mind. Its sparse nylon exterior is minimalistic. Inside the Swift are two clear pockets; it comes with a separate yarn sack. The Swift will hold sweater-size projects and smaller.

Down to Business

BagSmith's Attaché looks like a soft-sided briefcase. Inside are two main compartments with multiple pockets. Clever design enables you to knit right out of the bag as you stand waiting for anything from lattés to airport security.

Pretty Functional

The Vera Bradley Villager has long shoulder straps and one large zippered opening. The interior is lined with pockets to hold yarn, patterns, needles and notions, with plenty of room left over for your current knitting project. The Villager comes in a multitude of signature Vera Bradley floral and paisley patterns.

Active Knitter

Knitters will find the Knit Knack Sack the ultimate bag for practical, on-the-go knitting. These sacks are designed to be worn around the waist, enabling you to knit as you move about, wherever that may be.
