Star stitch pattern

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 ┬áthe 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!
