Save this Pin

And then you remember about the other five WIPs that have been long forgotten or avoided. What hook size what that again? Which yarn did I use? How about telling me the name of that fancy stitch that looks like erm… a half-star?

Yes! We have all been there! Guilty as charged.

The Smart WIP tag


This smart Work In Progress (WIP) Tag is what we all need. It holds all the info about our WIP project nicely in one place, plus it even has a little nook to hold a piece of your yarn sample.

  • Project Name: What project you are working on
  • Yarn Type: by Weight or Category or Fiber
  • Yarn Brand: So we know what brand to buy when we need more
  • No. of Skeins: Amount of yarn needed or yarn used
  • Hook: Size and which brand used (if we have multiple hooks)
  • Started on: Great to see how long this WIP has been put on hold
  • Due by: Perfect for motivation!
  • Notes: This section can include: Color, type of Special stitch used, Beads or Buttons needed, and other useful reminders

How to use this WIP TAG

This WIP tag comes in a printer-friendly PDF file that you can print and reprint over and over again. It’s about 3.5 x 2.5 inches (9 x 6 cm) in size and comes with 3 tags in one sheet. It is printable on any regular A4 size paper but for better quality, it would be best when printed on an art card sheet. (An A4 paper size is 8.3 x 11.7 inches / 21 x 29.7 cm).
