Rhinebeck Celebration 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 handcrafted out of a full yard of my signature cotton-linen fabric and 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.

Love this bucket bag!

This is the second bucket bag that I own from Little Skein and I absolutely love it! It is large enough to hold my large blanket pattern and yarn and cinches up tight so little paws don’t get into it. It is well made and I love the pattern. I waiting for this pattern to come available and I am so glad I did!

sweater buckets are the BEST

I have been waiting for the Knit Purl Fog sweater bucket to come back in stock for almost a year, and it was SO worth the wait. As always, I love the sweater buckets for durability, style and the warm fuzzy feeling I get when I pack them with my favorite things. Though this is the most expensive project bag available from Little Skein, GET ONE! It is worth every penny. Thanks again Anne and team!
