Crochet Hook Roll

I had crocheted the outer cover for this some weeks ago, so it was a real pleasure to get it finished. It was a real bonus that it was so relaxing to do.

I blocked the crochet over night and then cut the felt to fit. It had to be long enough that when folded back, it would form the pocket for the crochet hooks. I pinned the felt into place and then stitched into place using running stitch.

Once that was done, running stitch was used to divide the pocket to hold the hooks. I then had to crochet a button loop. This was a lot more successful than the cord I tried to crochet before. I t joined the ends and sewed into place. All I need now, is a button.
As always, it is a relief to finish something and find that it works!

Now I wonder how many hooks there are in a full set

This is so pretty and practical that it makes me want to learn to crochet!
As always, thanks for your encouragement on my blog.

That's a clever idea. And you did a great job on it. Here's a list of hook sizes. Not sure if it's complete, but it's pretty close.

That would be my luck...make a place to store something and then find out I didn't make it large enough! Hope all your crochet hooks fit in this one. It's lovely! :0)

nice crochet hook roll - i like the fact your crocheted the cover! and it should be plenty of space for hooks - there arent that many - mine is way too big.

What a great idea. I have plenty of crochet hooks, but they're mostly there for show, or picking up dropped stitches when I knit. I have to learn to crochet.

Wow! What a great idea! Not only pretty but practical too!

Great idea and I find that even though I own most of the hook sizes I probably really only use 6 - if that?
