Here's an ACTUAL crochet hook roll.  I moved the first one I made to the knitting board, since it was much more appropriate for needles instead.  This is a Christmas present for my Mother-In-Law (the bestest ever!), and I don't know much about crochet.  I DO know her needles are stashed all over her house and could use some organizing!

This one is 12" tall (when the flap is opened, see the blue ruler for scale), so it will hold 8" needles with a 4" flap to cover the tops of them.  It has a few pockets in the front row as well, for scissors, patterns, etc.  The Sharpie markers are for scale, the are about 5.5" tall.


It has interfacing in the lining, and with the binding on the Left and Right edges, it is very sturdy.  Also, the tie is on one side, so it can be rolled correctly.

Here is the size when rolled up...about 9" tall.  Very compact to slide into her knitting bag.


Is this one better?  Thanks for the comments!

(P.S. I edited this because my first version was more of an appropriate knitting needle roll and TOO big for crochet hooks, so I posted it on the knitting board instead.  I used the suggestions of others to make a smaller, more suitable size for crochet hooks.
Here's the larger knitting one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=133607.0)

I crochet...I "purchased" a hook holder and it's not nearly as nice as yours...most of my hook slots are too small to even fit my hooks, only about four of my hooks fit in it...so I  use the other slots to hold needles...BUT...one like yours would be perfect....I think your MIL will love love love it!....I do...

I'm a little concerned that the pockets are too tall.  Aren't crochet hooks only like 7" tall or so?  They'd end up getting lost in these pockets, especially the back ones.

That's what I was afraid of...I wasn't sure how the size varied with hooks.  I will sew a seam above the top of the bottom pocket line if this is the case.  The top pocket is 9" tall (so a 9" hook could fit all the way to the bottom, and it would'nt peek out), so if I do this, it will change that to 5"...so a 7" hook would stick out 2".  I hope that makes sense.  I can do a quickie paint illustration if I need to.

Any more opinions on this?

I looked a few places, and they all say that crochet hooks are about 6" long.  I hope that helps.

Thanks!  D'oh!  If only I had thought to do that instead of just searching everywhere for roll tutorials.  I guess I was getting them confused with knitting needles (since I am yarn craft ignorant!)

Acutally, yes.  The bag you made would be nearly perfect for knitting needles.  Shorter knitting needles are 10" long and longer knitting needles are 14" long.
