My Spooky Tarot Bag

What do you do with leftover wool?

Personally, I love turning it into all sorts of bags and purses. And when I recently discovered a skull pattern in a book, I decided to knit a special bag for my favourite Tarot deck, the Bohemian Gothic Tarot.

The easiest way to knit a bag is by just making a start and let the needles and your imagination guide you.

The yarn of this bag is for size 4mm needles, 35 stitches width x 30 rows.

The picot edging and handle are crocheted. I added a loop and button on the back for closure.

I love bags!


  1. I love this tarot bag! You are such a talented knitter! I can barely knit a scarf, lol! I love the pictures you took for this entry, too!

  2. Hi Kiki,

    thank you for your comment ;-) I enjoy knitting and crocheting bags like this, cos they're quite quick to make. If you enjoy knitting, keep going until you've mastered it - it's rewarding making your own things.


  3. Hi Christiane, these are great! and guess what... I've started knitting too :-)

  4. Hi Alison,
