Hey everyone.
 Just finished my latest project. A Crochet Hook Case.
Now I've had this pattern link saved in my bookmarks for a while and recently decided to use it due to a home renovation.
While moving some boxes with my craft stuff; one them happened to tip over spilling all my hooks across the room. Not good.  
Anyway, they needed a safe place and this is what i made.





This case is for aluminum hooks. (trust me i have more than what the picture shows  Cheesy )
It crochets quickly and in one piece. No fastening off. YAAAAAA Grin
I now i have to make one for my steel hooks.

Here are the links:
Aluminum- http://web.archive.org/web/20010820230737/members.aol.com/lffunt/alhookcase.htm
Steel- http://web.archive.org/web/20010711180209/members.aol.com/lffunt/sthookcase.htm

WARNING : I found some errors in the aluminum pattern. ( or it could just be me. No one else seems to be having this problem hmmmm.  Huh ) Somewhere around the spine section where you are asked to stitch in the front loops only, you will realize that a row of your free loops that are suppose to be in the back isn't; so be careful. Also the length of the back piece is a little to long.
I will try to find out where exactly and post it at a later time and also if there are any errors in the steel pattern as well.

Happy Hooking  Grin

I absolutely love this! It's beautiful and you did a great job. I'm going to go get some yarn and make one for myself immediately.  Cheesy

Did you really make that in one piece? It's one of the nicest crocheted works i've ever seen!

 ???I'm having trouble with it too.  I have done this twice and still can't find directions for row 28.  Either that or I have mis-counted as I've gone along.  Very frustrating. Embarrassed

Sorry for the delayed response. I've been away from craftster for awhile. (work, work, work, blah Undecided)
Anyway I'll try to see if I can help you as much as I can, if you haven't solved it by now.
PM me if you are still stuck.

I appreciate you sharing this pattern with us! I had considered making one that rolled up instead of a tie or zipper. Would you have any tips on creating them from your experience?

As someone who has made it halfway through a prototype, I'd say if you leave out the cardboard that makes the case sturdy, and just keep on working the slots for the hook instead of switching to work in a back of fold, this should make a nice hook roll, too. You could give it a try, work the first half, and then decided if you can go on just repeating that half.
Let us know if it works!
