You should start by thinking about what you are going to need from this bag.
Where Will You Be Knitting?
Do you like to take projects with you when you travel? or do you prefer to keep your work on the sofa?
You also need to think about if you will be needing bags for large or small-scale projects.
If you want to carry small projects like gloves, hats, or even a scarf a tote bag would be fine for your project and your knitting supplies.
If you are knitting a large project like a sweater or a blanket then you are going to need plenty of space for all the supplies.

Work With What You Have At Home
Knitting Project Bags are very useful and a good tool for any avid knitter but that doesn’t mean you can’t work with what you already have at home.
Plastic bags and IKEA bags can easily do the trick, the latter are ideal for larger projects.
Any bag with enough space, a good shoulder strap, and durable fabric can work.
A diaper bag can be a good alternative, if you already have one, as they have plenty of pockets and a sturdy design.
Will You Be Using More Than One Color Of Yarn?
When you are deciding on a yarn bag you should also think about if you will be using more than one color of yarn.
For example, if you are really into intarsia, then you may need a special bag that can separate your colors and help you to keep everything tidy and untwisted as you work.
Or you may have many WIPs on the go and may need a variety of bags to keep all of your projects organized.
Choosing A Yarn Organizer
Once you decide on where and when you will be knitting, it will be time to decide on a yarn bag or yarn organizer.
A simple yarn bag can be a cotton bag or canvas tote with long handles that you can easily use or place inside your luggage etc when traveling.
A more complicated yarn organizer will have many side pockets and large compartments for you to store all of your essentials, knitting patterns, and of course yarn!
