I hope I'm putting this post in the right spot. I have just begun to crochet now so I decided I needed a "roll-your-own-HOOK" case. Hope you like it.  Smiley

How funny...I just decided I needed to crochet too and convinced a friend to come over when my girls nap and we would park her child in front of the television and we would work on together and I was go to make a pair of cases one for her and one for me before we started as a way to show my appreciation...

I really like the of the pocket...

Did you stitch tubes for each hook then? Do you have a tutorial or a place where I could find instructions.

Yup I stitched tubes for each hook. In the first SnB bitch there are directions for making this kind of case but no specific instructions on how big each tube should be. I pretty much just eyeballed this whole thing.

For the tubes on the far left, each tube is about 5/8" wide. I did a few of those, then switched to 4/8", did a few more. For the littlest ones (kind of in the middle) I made the tubes between 3/8" and 4/8". I just used the measurement lines on my sewing machine.

For the scissors I made the tube wide enough to hold them but then stitched across the bottom of the tube about an inch or inch and a half up from the bottom to make the pocket more shallow. I wanted the scissors to stick out a bit so I wouldn't have to go digging for them.

Since I didn't bother measuring this before I started, I ended up with a couple more inches of fabric on the very right so I just made 3 or 4 more pockets. They could be used for extra hooks or tools.

Hope this helps  Smiley

Oooh! I have an old pouch that looks a bit too 1972. I love the colors and the ease of use.

I have made a couple of these.

The first one I made for knitting needles before I ever learned to knit, (and what I learned to sew a bit on)and the I did the same thing and did a variation of it for crochet and made quite a few.
As for the slots.  Unless they are thread crochet needles, I used half inch spacing up thru about H and then  three-quarter inch for h-kish and then L-Q are one in slots.

I have since bought even more needles including a set of crystalites for when on the airplane.  So I need to make a bigger/serperate case for them, however crystalites don't have anything on them that says the size so I am thinking of doing little iron tags for each needles section on the case for those.

But I always get compliments on my cases, and as long as I put the needles back, I always have the needle I need.

They actually do say what they are. Its on the handle, in little raised letters. I thought the same thing and I was really annoyed for a long time, until a friend pointed it out.

haha thanks!  about 2 hours after posting this I discovered the same thing while messing with one.
But yes, I was rather put out about it until I noticed as well, so thanks for telling me just the same. Smiley
