Crochet Pattern: Roll Up Hook Organizer

By Amy Yarbrough – 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.

Finish off.

(Back Side) Roll Up Hook Organizer

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. (Open View) Roll Up Hook Organizer

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.

    How do I crochet 5 together?

    • Hi Marie, thanks for taking the time to try my pattern.

      If you are speaking of “5 dc in one st”, then simply crochet 5 separate double crochets in the same stitch.

      If you are referring to the dc5tog:
      Yarn over the hook, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull yarn through 2 loops on the hook. There should be 2 loops on the stitch, one from the previous sc and one from the stitch you just made. Work the same thing four more times and you should have 6 loops on the stitch. To finish dc5tog, yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through remaining loop. Now you have dc5tog.

    It’s good to see this stitch pattern is as popular as ever. I crocheted two blankets for my then newborn niece, one of them in using the ‘Catherine Wheel’. I’ve also come across it referred to as ‘star stitch’.
