An awesome project for the beginning crochet student! This modular tray organizer pattern works up quickly with incredibly useful results.

Customize your workspace with these six modular storage cubbies.

The 9 page PDF file includes helpful tips throughout along with 28 full color, step-by-step photos.

Compartments are assembled with a blunt yarn needle using blanket stitch, although whip stitch may easily be substituted.

G-6 (4.25 mm) crochet hook
6.7 ounces (190 grams) DK weight yarn, divided into two equal balls, OR one ball of bulky to super bulky weight yarn
Blunt yarn needle

Optional materials:
Safety pins for holding compartments together during assembly
Bamboo kitchen skewers to slip inside seams for additional shaping; tray shown uses two 11 inch (28cm) lengths, two 3.75 inch (9.5 cm) lengths, and two 1.5 inch (4 cm) lengths

You can sell bowls made from this pattern, of course.

When selecting yarn for this project, keep in mind that cotton makes a soft and sturdy fabric, acrylic is a tad floppy alone, but works well when blended with other fibers, wool creates cozy texture, while blends such as alpaca, linen, or metallic fibers add unique depth and richness to your final project.

Final measurements of assembled tray: 12 inches long, 10 inches wide, and 1.25 inches deep (30 cm long, 25cm wide, 3.3 cm deep).

Gauge:

Gauge is not critical for this project. Any hook and yarn combination that gives you a dense, tight fabric will work.
