Assembly: Sew button to first section of Part 2, opposite the button hole. Weave in all ends.

And that’s it! The white inner part isn’t attached on the sides, making it that much easier to put the needles in/out, and leaving a space to slip a small pair of scissors as well! I can’t wait to see what you all make with this pattern – it’s ripe for personalization! Add appliques, surface crochet initials, or even sew on a patch or extra fun buttons, it’s up to you. Here’s to a more organized craft room!

    I love the way it looks! You could also use it for something else, like small crochet hooks.
    It’s pretty simple but very effective :)

    Have a crocheting new year!

    Took just a couple of hours to whip out. Thanks for the idea. Now on to cleaning all my milk crates for my skeined yarn.

    Cute! gotta make this one. I was wondering what you keep your crochet hooks in. I have the plan ones and some with the wooden handles in them. Please share your ideas. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

    The green print button doesn’t show up any more at the bottom of the patterns. Is there something I can do on my end to make them show up again? I love the pattern and can’t wait to make some!

    Awesome pattern! I’ll definitely be making at least one to hold my needles and little scissors (they’re always first to get buried in my hook bag if I’m looking for them!)
    I was wondering if you could describe the feel of the yarn (24/7 Cotton). Is it the same feel as mercerized cotton crochet thread, like Aunt Lydia’s Fashion 3? Thanks so much for the lovely free pattern!

    You say not to sew up sides- for white part- but if scissors go in there, and one side is not sewn, won’t they just fall out? Maybe I’m missing something, and I cannot see clearly on the bright orange side? Maybe the orange side is where there’s some pocket open on only one of 3 sides to put scissors in? I wish your pic would have a pair of scissors showing up in the area where ever they will be going-can you change pic here to show them please?

      Tamara Kelly says

      The scissors don’t fall out because when you button up the case, the white part holds them in on the top and bottom, and the orange part on the sizes. Does that make help?

    Love this pattern! A much needed accessory. About to try my hand at this right now. Thank you!

    Hi again! I have been working on this since last night. Have a little funny story. Let me start off by saying I have been crocheting since I was a child so I consider myself to be pretty skilled. As I was going along with the inner part, it just seemed off. Then I realized I was counting my rows all wrong. Long story short, I have a very nice new bookmark! Already started the outer part and am paying special attention to my rows. Going to do the inner part again once I’m done with the outer. THANX r letting me share with U and everyone!

    Kimberly johnson says

    Me again :) When I first found your pattern, my mind registered ‘crochet HOOK case’. Now that I am almost finished with the outer part, I was wondering why it is so small. Then it all hit me! Its for needles not hooks. I really do love this pattern so with your permission I am going to extend it to fit crochet needles. Finding your pattern has really helped me to broaden my creativity! Thank you again!

      Ahh! Sorry about the confusion! 😀 Some people have indeed “up-sized” it for hooks, I think it’s fantastic! Thank you so much Kimberly!

        Kimberly johnson says

        Oh no need to apologize! My confusion was due to not paying attention in my excitement!! I have completed the first case and working on the next. The original one works fine for my small hooks. Getting my measurements together for the 2nd to fully cover my larger hooks. Started the outer part first by chaining 36 instead of 21. I’m on row 3 of 35 sc stitches. So I got the length on point. Still figuring out if I want the same width for both pieces. Any and all suggestions welcomed! Is there a way to post here or send U a photo of my finished piece? I look forward to your response.
