Crochet Pattern: Roll Up Hook OrganizerBy Amy – 8 Comments
|Using a beautiful stitch called the Catherine Wheel, this pattern is a delightful blend of shells and clusters, perfectly displayed when using two colors, but just as pretty with one.
I first discovered the Catherine Wheel when making a baby blanket, my first. And now I believe it has to be the prettiest stitch I’ve had the pleasure to crochet.

Single crochet evenly around entire piece. Please see tutorial: Crochet Finish Technique: “Crochet Evenly Around”
With crochet hook G, ch 50, finish off.
Cut a piece of material about 9” (23 cm) x 10” (25 cm), fold raw edges and seam. Sew to crocheted piece by hand or use a machine. If using a machine, pin a layer of tissue paper to the crocheted side to avoid getting the yarn caught in the machine, and sew a wide stitch.
|Cut five 9” (23 cm) strands of ribbon. Line 2 strands side to side on piece, tuck ends under folded edges of liner and glue. When the glue is dried, sew 4 small stitches reaching from liner to ribbon on both ends. With the other 3 strands of ribbon, line them perpendicular to other strands and attach the same way. Sew a small “x” in each spot where the ribbon intersects, straight through all thicknesses. You should have 6 “x” ‘s.|
To further divide the slots, use a small dab of fabric glue between ribbon and liner. You could also sew a small stitch instead, but I found the glue to be easier.
Roll your hook organizer up and tie with your chain.
