    Swift

    Clear pockets for accessories + no zippers to snag yarn = your and our requirements for a great knitting bag.

    The Swift is a shoulder bag specifically for knitters and crafty types, designed by Tom in collaboration with the readers of Knitty® magazine. The 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.

    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.

    The Swift is available in multiple colors and fabrics, although the features, layout, and size remain the same in all versions.

    Also available is the The Little Swift, which is — you guessed it — a smaller version of the Swift.

    Inside the 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 O-ring with a key snap attached. On each end of the bag's interior is another O-ring. The O-rings are designed to allow you to clip the included Medium Yarn Stuff Sack (Clear Bottom, color matched to the interior lining of the color the Swift you choose) to the left or right side of the bag. And, of course, you can clip additional Yarn Stuff Sacks to the O-rings.

    The included Medium Yarn Stuff Sack is made of the same Dyneema®/nylon ripstop fabric that backs the clear urethane pockets of the Swift. This Yarn Stuff Sack can accommodate a large 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. The clear urethane bottom allows you to quickly see what the Yarn Stuff Sack contains.

    Additional Yarn Stuff Sacks, available in a wide variety of sizes and colors, are available for purchase here.

    The remaining interior of the Swift is devoted to space: lots of it. For custom organization, add Clear Organizer Pouches or Clear Quarter Packing Cubes. 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.
