Beautiful Wooden Crochet Hook Caddy

Supplies:

  • 1 piece of cutoff 2x4 board
  • 1 small can of any color stain
  • 1 small can polyurethane varnish
Ad

Tools:

  • router and beading bit
  • drill and various sized drill bits
  • sander or sanding block

Directions:

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.

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.

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) ;-)
