You can never have too many tarot bags!

Tarot bags are pretty and functional. They keep your cards safe, provide a quick way to identify decks, and are perfectly portable when you need to grab your cards and go.

Ever since I learned to knit two years ago I’ve been looking for the perfect tarot bag patternβ€”and when I couldn’t find one that was just right for me, I designed it myself!

This is a drawstring pouch that is sized to a snug fit for a standard tarot deck. A garter stitch cuff with eyelets creates a channel that shows off decorative drawstrings. An eyelet row near the bottom not only is a pretty detail but lets you peek at what deck is in the bag. A slight shaping gives the bag a tailored look. Satin ribbon drawstrings adorned with colorful crow beads are a fast finish.

Instructions for a large size are included if you want a looser fit, room for additional items such as a pendulum or crystal, or something to fit your larger decks.
