What to Look for in Knitting Bags:

When you’re buying a knitting bag, there are a few things you should consider before deciding which one.

Size: how big a bad you need depends on what knitting supplies you want to store or carry in it. If you only knit small projects, a small bag will be fine. If you knit bigger projects like blankets or sweaters, you’ll need a larger bag.

Durability: You want it to last, so it should be made from a durable material that can stand up to wear and tear. Look for bags made from sturdy fabrics like canvas or nylon.

Compartments and pockets: Compartments and pockets are the main reason you pick a bag over a basket. If you already have a good idea what size and how many compartments you need, you just need to find a bag with those options. If you’re not sure, look for bags with several different-sized pockets for holding needles yarn, and other accessories.

Comfort: Make sure it has comfortable straps or handles for carrying.

Style: the look of the bag may or may not matter to you, but they come in everything from wild patterns to very sedate solids. Pick something you will like, or that the person you’re gifting it to will like.
