The Little Swift is a smaller version of our Swift
tote/shoulder bag. Originally designed for knitters and crafty types,
the Swift was designed by Tom in collaboration with the readers of
Knitty® magazine. Since
its debut, the Swift has become popular among
The Swift Story:|
In 2005, we held a contest with Knitty® magazine and asked their readers to tell us everything they would like to see in the ultimate knitting bag — from colors, materials, and style of bag to functionality, accessories, and size. We received a flood of entries and suggestions. Tom made a few prototypes and sent them off to the editors of Knitty® for review; they responded with their ideas and thoughts. And, when the final design was ready for debut, the editors of Knitty® held a naming party. Many great names were suggested, but the winning entry was chosen because it has significance to knitters but doesn't designate the bag as solely for knitting: it's a great bag for all kinds of crafts, and many folks will find its clear pockets and stuff sack useful features in an everyday bag. Special thanks go to Amy and all the editors and readers of Knitty® magazine: we (really) couldn't have done it without you.
Inside the Little Swift are two
clear urethane pockets backed with our Japanese Dyneema®/nylon ripstop fabric.
The pockets mirror each other, and they close with strong #8 YKK zippers.
Above one of these pockets you'll find an
The included Small Yarn Stuff Sack is made of the same Dyneema®/nylon ripstop fabric that backs the clear urethane pockets of the Little Swift. This Yarn Stuff Sack can accommodate a medium or small ball of yarn. It has a drawstring top, and it includes a feature knitters will immediately notice as indispensable: a triangular clip open/close grommet to feed yarn through.
Also available separately are Knitting Tool Pouches, which 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
The remaining interior of the Little Swift is devoted to space for your stuff. For custom organization, add Clear Organizer Pouches or Clear Quarter Packing Cubes. The Little Swift's tote-bag design allows its contents to be easily found: you'll never have to waste time searching inside deep caverns for small, lost items. A button closure secures the top of the bag, which, unlike a zipper, won't fray yarn or projects. The handles are the ideal length for carrying in hand or on the shoulder, with the highest quality PORON® foam padding them.
