gochicken’s Knitting Tool Pouches review

“I just had a chance to try out the new Knitting Tool Pouches. They come in 4 sizes. Sizes 1, 2 and 3 are like short, medium, and long rectangular cases with reinforcements inside at both ends. The Size 4 is a 5.5” x 5.5” square that is perfect for interchangeable cables and stops.”

New: Knitting Tool Pouches

Knitting Tool Pouches

Our Knitting Tool Pouches are the latest design to debut from our ongoing collaboration with Amy Singer, Editor of Knitty®.

Knitting Tool Pouches can be used on their own, or together as a system. They offer a new style of tool organization allowing for modular and expandable containment of as many or as few tools as you might use. Each pouch features an O-ring on its corner, allowing you to connect the Knitting Tool Pouches to our optional Double Carabiner or to a Key Strap or Handle Loop.

Though designed with knitting and crochet tools in mind, these handy pouches can be used to organize and store anything you can think of that’ll fit in them.

Knitting Tool Pouches. $13 – $15. Available for order now; in stock and ships within one business day.
