Case for Crochet Hooks

Materials:

  • 1 piece of craft felt or felted wool sweater : 10.5 x 12"
  • 1 piece of cotton fabric for the lining : 11.5 x 13"
  • 1 piece of cotton fabric for the pocket : 7 x 13"
  • 1 piece of ribbon to tie your roll: approx 16"
  • Iron
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pins

Instructions:

  1. Press your cotton fabrics with your iron.
     
  2. Iron a 1/2" hem all around each piece so that they now measure 10.5 x 12 and 6 x 12 repectively.
     
  3. Take the 6 x 12" piece that will be your pocket and sew across the top hem to secure it in place before we piece the whole project together.
     
  4. Lay your 10.5 x 12" piece of felt (wrong side up) and place your lining fabric (right side up) on top of it.
     
  5. Place your pocket piece 6 x 12" (right side up with the sewn hem at the top) on the lining piece.
     
  6. Line your pocket up at the bottom half of your project so that about 4" of your lining piece shows at the top. The 4" top area will flap down over your hooks when you roll your case up.
     
  7. Pin all 3 pieces together like a fabric sandwich.
     
  8. Sew around the whole rectangle with fabric side up securing all 3 pieces together.
     
  9. Measure 3.5" from the top of your case and sew a horizontal line across. (This marks the flap and where you will begin sewing your pockets for your hooks in the next step.
     
  10. Starting at the left side of the rectangle, mark 8 or 9 pockets that are 3/4" wide from the flap line down to the bottom of the pocket and sew down each mark to form the hook pockets. There will be one larger pocket on the right side to hold your embroidery scissors, and anything else you would like to put there.
     
  11. Flip your case over and sew your ribbon about 2/3 of the way down your case so that when you fold your flap over the hooks, it will actually look like it is tied in the middle of the case.

Love this! I have a couple of nieces I have been teaching to crochet and this will be the perfect Christmas gift for them. The instruction are letter on and extremely easy to follow. Thank you!

I made one of these 30 years ago , made up my own pattern. Mine is in the form of a book with flaps connected to the top of page (so the hooks wont fall out) and a tie on the side to keep it closed, made it out of upholstery material so it has held up well all these years.

A great project. I did the same thing two years ago but I used placemats I purchased around Christmas at Target. I got the placemats that looked like velvet. I made my "pockets" in several sizes as I use regular crochet hooks and those which are lighted and bigger and wider. I store a small pair of scissors in the larger pocket. I attached ribbon to close and beads on the ends of the ribbons for a little bling. Made two as gifts that year and kept one for myself.

It's a good pattern to use for several uses whether it be for crochet hooks, pieces of silverware or pencils.

I did a quick search for a pencil holder, similar to this case for crochet hooks. The bad news is that I didn't find one. The good news is, it would be easy to adapt this very case to that purpose... a little thought and some pencils and paper to use for a mockup will give you the materials you'd need to figure out what changes to make. You might not want the pencil pockets to be as deep because pencils do get shortened as they're used. You might want an even shallower pocket for erasers, which would need to have a cover flap to keep the erasers in the pocket while traveling. A piece of velcro would keep that eraser pocket closed until you need the erasers...

do you have a patern on pencilecase holder
