Prince Edward Island sweater bucket

  • A beautifully crafted, oh so practical, companion for your favorite knitting chair: the sweater bucket.

    I expect a lot from a sweater bucket. It has to be classic and stylish; it needs to close at the top to keep out small hands (or paws); it has to hold a lot of knitting; and it has to stand upright when full and squish down when I want to store it.

    It took a while for me to find the perfect combination of fabric weight, interfacing and size to meet this very tall order, and I'm so happy with the final result!

    The Little Skein sweater bucket is hand-crafted out of a full yard of my signature cotton-linen fabric and then interfaced with a fleece lining, which gives it a soft and slightly squishy feeling. When full, the bag will neatly stand up on its own, and when empty, it will flop down for easy storage.

    The best part is the top: it is fully lined with an interior drawstring that cinches shut to protect your knitting. It has sturdy carrying handles should you want to carry your bag, but I hope, like mine, yours will become a regular fixture next to your knitting chair.


    My sweater buckets are:

    • Approximately 14" wide, 9" deep, and 8 " tall

    • Made with 100% cotton and cotton/linen fabric

    • Able to cinch shut with a grosgrain ribbon and cord lock

    • Constructed with 2" wide fabric carrying handles

    • Machine stitched with beautiful top-stitching and fully enclosed seams

    • Created one at a time, with love, in a kid-friendly, dog-friendly, and smoke-free studio. (Our beagle pup, Molly, doesn't help with sewing, but she's around the studio so if you are highly allergic, please be aware that your bag will not be hypoallergenic.)

    Each bag is carefully handcrafted, so you should expect there to be some variation in fabric placement, as well as minor variations in size or shape. Your satisfaction is very important to me. Please let me know if you're not completely delighted with your purchase.

I bought my first sweater bucket last summer, and I have been waiting for more ever since. EVERYONE needs a sweater bucket from Little Skein, they are wonderful.

Sweater Bucket Makes a Fab Blanket Bag

I, along with many others, have fallen head over heels for the Cozy Memories Blanket, but it is a pain to attempt to keep the blanket in progress, along with the yarns used or being used or about to be used, all in one project bag without it just being one giant mess. This Sweater Bucket is perfection in a project bucket! I love the handles, I love the roominess, I adore the print (self proclaimed hedgehog lover), and it is so well made! Best of all, it sits in my living room. I pull out my blanket to work on a square or two, toss it back in the bucket, cinch it closed, and it isn't a gigantic eyesore. In fact, it's very lovely to look at, so very well made for the task at hand. I am so glad that I bought something of this high quality to house a very loved project.
