Knit, Purl, Fog sweater bucket

  • Handmade to last, fabric that tells a story.

    A Little Skein project bag is for the knitter who loves making and reading with equal passion.

    You put your knitting and your time into a project bag, and we put in kindness, good feelings, and an authentic connection to a story you love.

    Be inspired every day. You don’t need a special occasion to use special things. A Little Skein bag is like a favorite book that fills you with happy memories every time you see it.

    Delight in beauty. Our handmade touch is distinct, from covered zipper ends to fully enclosed seams. When you use your Little Skein bag, you will know that it has been made with expert care, designed to last for years.

    Feel good about what you buy. We believe in people who work creatively, and we put these values into everything we do. Your project bag is made by a team who are compensated fairly for their expert craftsmanship, from the artist who draws the illustration to the person who hand-wraps your bag.

    Size info and more on the tabs (above).

  • Sizes to match your knitting process, not just your project.

    Each knitter’s process is as unique to them as their final project so we make project bags that suit how you like to knit. There are options for knitters who like to travel light, who need a bigger bag to keep their supplies all together, or who want to add a just little more to their project bag like a book or notions pouch.

    Sweater buckets:

    • Ideal for very large projects – sweaters, blankets, or even multiple WIPs

    • Holds 20+ skeins of yarn. Seriously, this bag holds a lot of knitting.

    • 14” wide, 8” tall and 9” deep with a rectangular base

    • Capacity of approx. 1035 cubic inches

    • Interfaced with extra-lofty fleece, which lets the bag squish down so it can be folded and stored away safely, but enough heft to stand upright when full.

    • Drawstring closure to keep your project safe from little hands (or paws)

    • Built-in fabric handles so you can carry your bucket wherever you need to

  • Beauty in difference. Each bag is carefully handcrafted, so there will be some variations in where the fabric print is placed, and minor variations in size or shape. We think that’s part of what makes each bag perfect – they’re not identical.

    Care for your Little Skein bag like you would a fine sewn garment. Use it with pleasure, take care to keep it clean, and know that it can be washed when needed. If your bag ever gets stained, I recommend spot cleaning with a Tide stick. If you need to wash it, machine wash on gentle cycle with a mild detergent and cold water wash/cold water rinse. Let dry naturally and iron with a very hot iron. More advice on washing are in my FAQ.

    Do you have allergies? I keep a well-organized and sparkling studio, without scents or stray threads. But, the studio is also beagle-friendly. I keep Molly safely away from sewing and packing, but if you are highly allergic to dogs, please be aware that your bag will not be hypoallergenic.

Sweater Knitting Tote

This is a lovely bag for my sweater knitting needs. Nice and big to hold several skeins plus whatever you like to keep handy - a notebook, notions, etc.The fabric is fun and durable and I especially like the drawstring top closure to cinch up my work when I have to put it away. Keeps my furry critters out of my yarn.

Fabulous large bag!

Well made. Fabulous fabric. And the sweater bucket is huge. I have a blanket's worth of yarn inside (twenty 100-gram skeins of worsted yarn) and it still easily closes. I'm thrilled to have such a great bag for my largest projects.


Love love the stargazer sweater bucket, almost as much as I love how Anne stands by her principles, and it shows in the bag itself. It’s a great bag, fits all 11skeins of DK needed for a 2XL sweater and then some, and I know it’s sold by someone who values truth, empathy, and compassion. 5/5 stars for the bag and 5/5 stars for Anne!


My new Rainbow Sweater Girl Sweater Bucket exceeds my expectations. It is roomier than I expected and the fabric is delightful. What a fun addition to my knitting world.

What a great bag!

I love this bag, just the right size and already have gotten a lot of compliments.
