roll-up crochet hook case

I keep losing my crochet hooks… I’ve ended up with 3 duplicate hooks because I can never find the right size hook when I need it. I realised I needed a roll-up case where I could store all my hooks, arranged by size, and then I’d always be able to find the right hook.

I spent ages planning before I started cutting the fabric, and the whole thing came together very quickly (except the knotted strap, but I couldn’t find a ribbon to match the trim, so I thought I’d make my own… and it escalated from there).

I’ve written up a tutorial for how I made this. 

Here’s the finished crochet hook case (as always, click the images for larger versions):

The case unrolled. The top flaps over the hooks so they don’t fall out when the case is rolled up

Each crochet hook has its own pocket, so they all stay in order

Rolled up

I used a ‘bra strap’-type fastener so the strap loop can be adjusted. When the loop is large enough, it can be slipped off the top of the case so the case can be unrolled

Detail of the end of the strap – the bead prevents the end of the strap from sliding free of the fastener

    Hi there! Thanks for this great tutorial! I just finished my variation on this- left some space at one end for my tape measure, scissors, etc. Doesn’t roll up as neatly as yours, mind…
    Would love to show you photos- I don’t have a blog, but you can find me on ravelry.

    What were the dimensions – have to make one this week for a Xmas gift. Did you pad it with fibrefill?
