I made this for my BOFF cause she likes to knit me stuff. It's her favorite thing to do, actually. So I figured she might as well be stylin' while she's knitting. She I picked out the fabrics, and don't they look so awesome together?

It's your typical needle roll. I didn't really follow a pattern. There are three rows of pockets, each row has 11 pockets, varying in width from 1 inch, to... I think 4 inches (for scissors and circular needles, I think). It's pretty much a quick project unless you decide you need to make your own bias tape and/or get distracted. Roll Eyes Oh, but how pretty! The ribbon is not super shiny. It was just playin'.

I don't have a lot of needles/hooks, so use your imagination:

Then you fold the flap down:

And roll it up!:

Lovely fabric choices.  the colors go well together.  Looks like it has batting between the layers, giving it a quilted look. This is the nicest needle roll I have seen.  Nice job.

Thank you guys! I hope she loves it.  Smiley So she'll knit me more stuff.

It does have a very thin layer of batting between the layers. It makes it really soft. I flip flopped a few times about using it but I'm glad I did!

If you can't find thin batting, fleece will do the trick as well.

I love the bird fabric!  this is cute.  I need to make myself one of these because I lose my damn needles/hooks all the time and end up buying new ones...only to find the old ones later..

I've never seen a multi-level needle roll before.  Everything is fab about this one -- the fabric selection, the batting (which adds nice body), the pocket sizes.  Great job!
