After the hubby and I got married, i self gifted myself a set of clover crochet hooks. I can’t even begin to tell you how in love I am with this set of hooks. The handles are soft and smooth and the different colors make it very easy to identify which hook you’re working with.
Since I am a fan of all things organization (you can blame the hubby on that one), I figured I should make a case to keep my hooks and stitch markers. I had also just bought a skein of Bernat baby coordinates in ‘Posy patch’. The colors happen to perfectly match those in the hook handles. Can you say match made in heaven?
The zipper was sewn by hand, although I’m sure you could choose to do so with a machine. I haven’t yet tried to sew anything onto my crochet using my sewing machine. Perhaps it’s about time to try!
Without further ado… here’s the VERY EASY pattern for this hook case
Crochet hook color me case
Crochet hook 4 mm (G)
Less than 1/2 skein of Bernat baby coordinates in ‘Posy patch’
A 9 inch zipper in a contrasting or matching color
Sewing needle and thread or embroidery floss
Round 1: ch 31. Hdc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch to end. Turn. (30 hdc)
Round 2: Ch 1, hdc in each st to end of the row. Then hdc in the side of the first st of the first round. Turn and hdc in the each ch of the starting ch, opposite of the first row of hdc. Turn again and hdc in the side of the last st of round 1. Join to the first stitch of round 2 using a slip stitch.
From now on you’ll be working in the round
Rounds 3-17: 1 hdc in each hdc around. Do not join or chain at the end of rounds.
Weave in ends and sew the zipper along the opening of the pouch using a needle and thread or embroidery floss. I used green embroidery floss to match my zipper.
