Easy Crochet Hook Holder – Free Pattern

I don’t know about you, but in times like this I am so happy to have crochet as a distraction. The problem is, I’m having a rather hard time focusing on my projects. At least, on the bigger ones. Yesterday I was really feeling like I wanted to crochet to keep my hands (and mind) occupied, but I kept getting distracted by Facebook or news alerts. I’m thankful for both of those things – it’s pretty awesome that we can get news in an instant – but sometimes it gets to be a lot.

I decided a simple project would probably be best. It’s been awhile since I have made any sort of basket or holder, so I thought now would be the perfect time. This little hook holder would easily be adjusted to different sizes. Make it shallow for a ring dish, taller for a pencil holder, etc.

Difficulty: Easy

Yarn: I used Malabrigo Chunky – a bulky 5 weight Merino Wool. It’s quite pretty! I often have a hard time using bulky yarn with a small hook, but this was a dream to work with and it didn’t hurt my hands at all. Bernat Maker Home Dec or a similar yarn would also work well.

Hook:  G+ (4.5mm)

You’ll also need: Yarn needle, stitch marker, scissors

Abbreviations:
MC magic circle
ST/STS
 stitch/stitches
SL ST slip stitch
SK skip
CH chain
SC single crochet
LHDC linked half double crochet

Special Stitch, LHDC:
Insert hook into the vertical bar of previous stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on hook.
For your first LHDC of each round, use the second chain from the hook as the first vertical bar.
