My friend Ronnie has crocheted several hook holders. So has DJ. So has, I think, everyone else in the St. Louis Crochet Club. I keep my hooks in a variety of holders – the one I carry around is a zipped leather purse, just the right size to hold a bunch of ‘regulation’ size hooks, scissors, markers, a ruler, etc. The overflow, if one can call my mess of hooks that, are contained in a variety of flower pots, Crystal Lite cylinders, and ceramic mugs missing their handles. In other words, not very well contained at all.
So, I decided I’d find me a pattern to crochet the definitive hook holder. I can create my own pattern, but might be easier to use that of someone else – someone who has already made the mistakes and correct them. LOL. Here’s what I found online – mostly free.
Now, I think even I can make this one without a pattern. The project looks straightforward enough. BTW, the blog this came from is pretty interesting. Go there and browse around, especially if you enjoy other crafts too. Note: this site loads slowly on my DSL.
This one is cute:
This next one is really pretty. It won’t hold ALL my hooks, but I might make it anyway. Scroll down just past half way for the picture and pattern. Lots of other eyecandy on this blog too.
Isn’t this one a beauty? Don’t know if I have spare wall area for it. My craft room is jammed FULL of ‘stuff’. This one is for steel hooks. There’s a similar pattern for aluminum hooks too.
NOTE – not a free pattern.
Felted! I love felted crochet fabric. It’s so lovely and has a nice ‘hand’. Maybe I’ll make one like this. No need for a pattern. In fact, one of the fun things about felting is never knowing exactly what size the finished project will be!
Maybe there are just too many choices. Anyone else have a link to a great hook holder pattern, free or otherwise??
