Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Beginning sewing, crochet and felting skills.
  • Will learn, decrease, working with multiple colors, crocheting with two strands of yarn and wet felting techniques.

Pattern Description:

Not too long ago I noticed that I had a couple dozen crochet hooks, but could never find the size I wanted when I needed it. I resolved to get things organized and in one place with some crochet hook cases - one for steel hooks, one for the really large bamboo, and another for the aluminum. This resulted in the crocheted cases pictured here, although I decided that a case for the steel hooks is going to need to be made of sturdy fabric - they just poke right through felted cases no matter how densely felted. This pattern includes directions for three different cases, all suitable for standard 6 inch hooks.
For reference instruction set A is for the green case, B is the purple case and C is the red and gold case. Case A can hold up to ten hooks, B can hold up to twelve and C can hold up to sixteen depending on size.

Gauge:

Case A - 18 stitches by 13 rows equals a 4 inch by 4 inch square. Felted it will measure 2 inches by 2 3/4 inches
Case B - 14 stitches by 11 rows equals a 4 inch by 4 inch square. Felted it will measure 3 inches by 3 1/2.
Case C - gauge is the same as the gauge for Case B even though B is made with worsted/aran weight yarn and C is made with doubled up fingering weight yarn.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Case A - 3 1/2 inches wide by 7 inches tall
  • Case B - 4 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches tall
  • Case C - 6 inches wide by 6 inches tall
