How to crochet a hook organizer pattern
A large size crochet hook organizer free pattern. I designed this because commercial hook organizers do not hold all of my hooks! By the time you buy a set like this, add in a few pretty or special ones here and there you can accumulate two dozen hooks in a flash!

This crochet hook organizer is customizable not only for how many hooks you would like to store but also the ability to make some wider slots and some slimmer slots to snuggly hold all your prized crochet hooks.
This is for a comfortable beginner due to the unconventional pocket making style. You should be comfortable with basic stitches, yarn tension and joining rows.

Ch 1 and turn to long side. Hdc across edge. Ch 1 slip st into stitch above. Size shown has 73 hdc sts across. Row 2: HDC across. Finish row by slipping into corresponding stitch above on short side row as shown in figure 1 below.
This is creating the pocket. Finish each row like this. Keep mindful as you go back and forth you will slip into 2 stitches above to accommodate the previous row worked.
Row 3: Working in back loop only, HDC to create the curve.
Row 4: HDC across Make sure on this row you work into the top of the stitch, you may have to turn your work a bit so that row faces you as shown in video.
Create invisible pockets:
Row 5: *hdc 3. On 4th st, Yo, go through stitch and connect to corresponding stitch in main body. Yo pull through.* Repeat *to* end. Do smaller spaces of 2 hdc between if desired for narrow hooks.
Row 6: HDC across.
Rows 7-12: Alternate row 5 and 6
Work the external tie detail
Ch 6. in second ch from hook work 5 sc. Ch1 turn. SC across. Secure and weave in ends.
Using tapestry needle, attach top and bottom of tabs (to allow yarn strands to pass through) where shown in image below. Use tiny invisible knots to secure and weave in end before cutting yarn. Reminder if you made a longer base to create a flap, turn the flap down so it is not included in the placement of exterior.
Create 6 even lengths of contrasting color yarn (shown, each length is 36”), plus two strands of the yarn used for body of organizer.
Group yarns 3 each contrasting color with one each of the body color.
Feed them through tabs as shown in video leaving same amount of free strand length on each side. Divide yarn for braiding: Three sets of 2 strands of contrasting color, two of the three sets will have one strand of body color. Braid snuggly then secure with invisible tassel knot (shown in this video).
