The avid, and even the beginning, crochet crafter will find themselves with a variety of hooks to keep track of. This is a guide about handmade crochet hook holders.
I saw a beautiful pattern to crochet a crochet hook holder. The pattern was costly and I could think of ways to personalize it, so I set to making my own.
I made this with all scrap materials, so it was very thrifty, and it is more useful to me than anything I've seen in stores.

Love it! Thank you for the really good instructions too. I gotta make one of these. :-)
Thank you for the suggestions, Julia! I hadn't thought of using pin backs for the flowers, but I'll be heading to Michaels to get some. I hadn't thought about selling the holders, either, but I do have a lot of fabric remnants...hmm. You have so many good ideas, Julia!
I really like your craft idea and I'm going to make something like it for my embroidery projects. I love doing ribbon embroidery in combination with regular embroidery and the addition of crystal beads. I never seem to have everything I need in one handy place. With a few alterations, this would work just great.
Thank you for sharing your nice craft idea.
I'm "hooked"! I agree with Julia, you should sell them and I'd gladly be your first customer seeing my sewing machine is still down.
Besides putting pins on your crocheted flowers (I put mine on hats too) I've glued magnets to them for the fridge.
You could make some good "seed" money! : )
Great photos and easy instructions.Thanks for sharing and good luck with winning on this one.
This craft just won 3rd place for Crocheted/Other at the State Fair here in Salem. It's a fun craft you can make with any scrap yarn.
Find yourself a good sized scrap of 2x4 (layout your crochet hooks to decide how big it will need to be). Run the router with a beading bit around the top edge of the 2x4 while laying it flat. Sand thoroughly until smooth.
With a drill and drill bits: drill holes to fit the size of your crochet hook's bottoms so that the crochet hooks can be stuck in wood with the hook side up.
Stain and varnish now or try these options. Embellish with some decoupage on either end of the board with the holes for the hooks in the center. You could personalize this by decoupaging pictures on the ends for the person you are making it for. You could also wood burn a saying or write the recipient's name before you apply the stain and varnish.
Add the crochet hooks when it is dry.

I would like directions for joining small granny square's poncho.(4 to 5 in squares)
This crochet hook holder is definitely not one to use for travel. I use a short wide drinking glass for the extra ones that do not fit in my quilted fold-up holder.
How come there's no photo of this?
I had commissioned something similar with 3 concentric circles of wood glued in a stack and holes drilled around all 3 rings, in various sizes - for my assorted pens and markers.
Little note here, from a UK resident, I have discovered that your crochet pattern instructions differ to those we use in the UK - Your Single Crochet (SC) is our Double Crochet (DC), and your Double Crochet (DC) is our Treble Crochet (TRC) - and so on. This should make life easier for anyone else struggling to make 'foreign' patterns (UK-/US and vice versa) ;-)
