Kipster Knitting Bag

A round drawstring bag designed to carry your small knitting projects, such as socks and hats.

I worked on this design with a customer who wanted a bag that she could use while walking and knitting.
After a bit of Googling, on my part, I discovered this is a growing trend and this type of bag is commonly called a KIP bag, for Knitting in Public.

Fabric design by Celeste Gagnon

Layout varies on each bag


22.86 cm

5 1/2"
13.97 cm


Two zippered pockets circle the exterior
Great for stitch markers.

19.05 cm

A d-ring is located between the two pockets.

This provides a place to hold while zipping the bag closed
also a place to attach a pair of scissors, or other tool, to avoid leaving them behind in some random waiting room, on a park bench, or on the bus. The scissors can still be dropped into the pocket, but are secured to the bag as well.

Needles pictured are 7" long

A set of pockets circle the bag’s interior

This allows you to...

My bags are made to last! My background has long been in the world of outdoor gear, so I use top quality nylon webbing, linings,zippers and hardware. I take pride in my high quality standards. I use large seam allowances and copious amounts of reinforcements on stress points.

Customer service and high quality work are the life blood of my business, Zoë Designs Ltd. I have over 25 years professional experience and have been in business since 1995.


"I cannot recommend these bags enough. Her shipping is fast, her bags are very well made, and she has excellent customer service.
Note to knitters/crocheters/spinners:
1) Suebee and Kipster drawstring style bags are large enough to fit socks, shawls, and I've even carried my spindle and some fiber in them.
2) the lining fabric is smooth, so if you want to carry your spinning, the fiber won't get caught on it!
3) For those who "cake" their yarn on a ballwinder... the cake fits perfectly on the round bottom.
Get one! Or 2... Stephanie"

"Hi Karen - I've gone through at least 5 knitting bags, some costing a LOT of money (as in over 150), and the Kipster is hands-down the best.

As some of your reviews say, the Kipster holds a cake of yarn, or two, perfectly. All of the pockets are well-placed and handy sizes to hold everything, the zippers and rings on the outside are far more useful than one might first expect, and there is NO VELCRO, which is a huge, huge deal. They are finished so well that I have never had a yarn snag on anything. I use mine even when I take the huge sweater-project bag, because all the tools are so much easier to get to inside the Kipster, and the yarn can't escape and cause problems.

I'm sure more knitters would love the chance to buy one!

Thanks lots - Valarie L"

"Your work is excellent. I couldn't find anything that even made me go "Hmmm" on close examination and three days living with it.
The design is great - sits up, steady when I'm pulling on the yarn, nothing catching, all my goodies in the bag where I can find it, there are several sets of needles, crochet hooks, circulars in it without crowding the bag or keeping it from closing. I added a set of 7" double pointed needles and it didn't burp. :)
I like the ring on the top of the bag, I find I end up carrying the bag by it. I need to get a carabiner out and hook it to my purse like I do my keys.
Summary: YAY!

“The fabric you use inside the Kipster is brilliant -- certain types of my very expensive skeins can begin to develop a "halo", especially when a WIP takes me a long time, and even mohair looks perfect when I use the KIPSTER. Friction inside a project bag is not a good thing, even if you always use a center pull cake/ball. Just one more selling feature for your bags!” AMG
