The story behind the ultimate tote
I received an email from a customer in search of something for her mother who is an avid Knitter. After searching the internet high and low she found nothing that was suitable. After a few drawings, changes to the pattern (a lot) I finally came up with the Ultimate Knitters tote. With 75 knitting needle pockets and space large enough to fit around 10-12 100g balls of wall and a project piece inside, its perfect for storing at home or while your on the go.
After proudly showing off the custom made tote to my lovely FB fans, i was then asked if i could make a smaller version suitable for crochet.
So that’s what i did. Then aaarrrrh ‘ i had a light bulb moment!!! A drawstring top was introduced, now its perfect!
