Made with Red Heart With Love, the first section of the Bedside Organizer slips between the mattress and box springs (or along the inside of the couch) to hold it in place.

Cozy Couch and Bedside Organizer Caddy Tutorial
Switching Colors at the End of a Row
Beginning with Row 58, carry or "float" the unused color along the side to avoid additional ends to weave in - click here for a tutorial on this technique.
Row 1: With Color A, ch 49, skip the chs closest to the hook, hdc in each rem ch across; turn. (48 hdc in every row of the pattern)
Row 2 - 29: Ch 1, hdc in each st across; turn. At the end of Row 29, finish last st with Color B, and break Color A.
Row 30 - 58: Rep Row 2. At the end of Row 58, finish last st with Color A.
Row 59: Ch 1, blo hdc in each st across; turn.
Row 60 - 62: Rep Row 2. At the end of Row 62, finish last st with Color B.
Row 63: Rep Row 59.
Row 64 - 66: Rep Row 2. At the end of Row 66, finish last st with Color A.
Row 67: Rep Row 59.
Row 68 - 70: Rep Row 2. At the end of Row 70, finish last st with Color B.
Row 71: Rep Row 59.
Row 72 - 74: Rep Row 2. At the end of Row 74, finish last st with Color A.
Row 75: Repeat Row 59.
Row 76 - 78: Rep Row 2. At the end of Row 78, finish last st with Color B, and break Color A.
Row 79: Ch 1, blo sc in each st across; break yarn.
Step1: With odd numbered rows facing out, fold at Row 59. Rows 59 - 79 will form the front of the pocket.
Step 2: Use stitch markers to hold pocket in place.
With Color B, join to the side of Row 59 with a sl st, ch 1, and sc through front *and* back layers of pocket, enclosing any yarn carried along the side.
Continue to sc along side of Color B section, switching to Color A to crochet along the side of the Color A rows.
At the corner, ch 2, and sc across the foundation chain. Then, ch 2 again, and sc along the other side, switching to Color B for that section.
Sc through front and back layers of opposite side of pocket, finishing this row at the opposite end of Row 59.
Step 3: Use stitch markers to plan your pocket divisions.
This is a custom feature - place the lines where you want them so that the pockets are the right size for the items you want to keep in the caddy.
Once marked, use surface crochet (tutorial linked above) to crochet along the line, from Row 59 to Row 79, going through both layers of the pocket, switching colors to match the stripes as desired.

Beautiful and so practical! Thanks 😀
Are you going to do a to Torio on the bedside caddy?
Yes, it came out today! I'll link it now! 🙂
How do you keep it from stretching when you put something heavy in there?
Using a non-stretchy yarn helps, but you could also line the back with fabric if desired. 🙂
Can you make this wider to hold more remotes 🙄 there has got to be 4 at least sitting around, always getting knocked off the table. My hubby also has a tablet for his game playing/book reading that lats about.
Absolutely! The width is totally up to you - there's no particular stitch repeat! 🙂
I'm planning on making the bedside organizer but when reading through the instructions I was confused on row 76-78. Instructions say to rep row 2 than to finish the last stitch with color B at the end of the row74 shouldn’t that be row 78? Could be a type error but I need to know before I start . This is a beautiful caddy and want to make it for a family member for Christmas Happy Hooking Virginia in Arkansas
Whoops, that does look like a transcription error! Thank you for bringing it to my attention, I have edited the post!
