The Crochet Hook Case

I don’t know whether its just me, but crochet hook cases seem hard to come by. So with a growing collection of hooks it seemed like the next logical idea would be to make myself one!

I can’t take any credit for the pattern, I simply scoured Pinterest until something interesting jumped out at me. Always up for a challenge I was happy when I found the star hook case.

This was what I was able to produce…

In other words, you are just producing a a simple rectangle, that you roll and tie to close. EASY!

It didn’t put me off the design and with time I can see  the stitches and therefore the shape relaxing. One thing I would do differently for next time however is to make the case twice the recommended size, the picture above only shows a third of my crochet hook collection!

    1. Some may argue that its more intermediate but it is really easy once you get the hang of the technique! I suppose what throws people off is where to pull through and how to get the six loops onto you hook. It looks more daunting than it really is! If the written pattern doesn’t feel clear enough a good youtube link is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLFuiVy-Obg. Otherwise, just keep at it and keep the tension relaxed and you’ll get it in no time 🙂
