Hook organizers ideas and patterns

*This post may contain affiliate links.


I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

 Do you remember the crochet hook organizer we posted some time ago? It’s great, if you want to store and organize your hooks and scissors. It can also be made with double rows, should you need to store LOTS of hooks in a compact and very attractive case. Link to the free pattern of Hook Holder Case designed by Priscilla’s Crochet is at the end of the post.

However, if the holder case above is not your metier, and you need something more portable, then how about the Star Hook Case? It can also hold a great variety of hooks, in fact one or more of every hook you use, but it rolls up really compact for travel, or for storage in a small place (like a small apartment).  Designer of this pattern is Alli Hyer.

Hold on, hold on! What if you don’t need portability, and you don’t need compactness, but you are looking for versatility and storage for EVERYTHING? And, on top of this,  do you still want to have ready access to all your crochet supplies? In that case, why don’t you try the adorable organizer below? The Amigurami Granny Doll designed by Zhaya Designs Amigurumis is everything you need for organizing your craft tools. It is a scissors pocket, pin cushion and hook divider all in one… plus it has a bunch more useful nooks and crannies. Link to that pattern is below.

  11. Sally Jones says:

    hi. when I click on the link, it says that it is forbidden and I do not have permission to access it . Is there something I need to do beforehand. I have never had this problem before.

  12. I can’t download this pattern. Error message say I do not have permission to download. 404. Please can you tell me how to get it. Thank you.

    1. Thank you, we fixed the link.

  13. Laurie Bigler says:

    I have tried to download the crafty granny pattern all day with no luck. When I push the “here” button it takes me to a site that says forbidden. I really want this pattern, can anybody help?

    1. Thank you, we fixed the link.

    2. After much searching and frustration I finally found the pattern for the Granny. Go to the Ravelry link and the free pattern is there to download.

  14. Crafter granny apparently isn’t a free pattern. I get to the site and it says there is a mistake its a forbidden free pattern!

    1. Thank you, we fixed the link.

  15. What do you use to tint the cheeks?

  16. Can you please show a picture of the back of the granny? The pattern doesn’t have one. Thank you.

  17. I can found the pattern

  18. Thank you for sharing. She is adorable. But, you should have had someone who knows how to CORRECTLY write patterns type this up for you. There is a reason there are standard abbreviations and standard pattern writing terms. I understand the time it takes, but the way it is written now is difficult to understand, for someone who has been crocheting 40+ years.

    1. @Dianne: This page isn’t the owner nor the publisher of this pattern. It’s just a link to my page (www.zhaya.de).

      You know, it’s a FREE pattern and you don’t have to crochet it. But just so you were complaining.

      I’m German and I’m translating my patterns to English for the many many people they where asking for. I’m not a native speaker and I do my very best to make the patterns understandable. I wrote it the way the English patterns are written for Amigurumis I know.

      Most of the feedback I’ve received so far is very positive, they can work well with it, except you.

      Maybe you could write it a little more kindly and show a little more gratitude. However, have fun crocheting.

      Greetings Zhaya

    2. Iam in the middle of doing this it’s American terminology as you already know I guess, the bottom i Thk is wrong little and Iam yet to do the apron which Iam going to have good read over

      I’ve tried to get the Crafter Granny pattern but can’t seem to find the link. Thank you for your help.

  23. Hi there, I love the granny with the blue / green dress, grey long hair and glasses. Do you have this pattern, or do I have to improvise of the other pattern? Thanks 🙂 Kind regards, Kristina, Denmark

    1. It is based on the pattern Crafter Granny – link to that pattern is at the end of the post.

      1. So sorry for the frustrated reply, but myself, like hundreds before me, cannot find the “link” at the bottom of the curly haired granny pattern. All the links suggested simply return to the pattern picture in a constant circular trail never ending in a pattern. I have asked for assistance from other computer savvy friends and no one can get the pattern past all the “start download” requests. I am sure there is a very simple solution to what I am missing here as I’m sure you want this pattern delivered. Can you help me? Thanks

  24. Where do i find the Curly hair granny pattern? Everything I click on it Sally or the other granny.

  25. Becky Morrison says:

    Hello, I would like to make the granny that has pins on top but I can’t find a link for her

    1. Hi Becky, thank you for your comment. Link to that pattern is at the end of the post, it’s Crafter Granny what you are looking for.

  26. Beautiful crochet inspirations! It is a pity that it is difficult to find free crochet patterns on this site.

    1. Hi Joanne, thank you for your comment. Pattern for each hook organizer is at the end of the post.

  27. Virginia Jurkowski says:

  28. thank you for a great side, I cant get the free pattern for the granny with curlu=y hair and glasses, in the end of the post only comes the one with pins in her hair. is it only me .or is there a problem, thank you

  29. Where is the link for the Curley hair granny? I can’t find it anywhere.

    1. It’s a modification of Crafter Granny.

  30. Jill Struemph says:

    I am not able to find the
    Free Crochet Pattern
    I’d appreciate your help.

  31. I know this is much later and I thank you for being so patient with people and I just want to say- PEOPLE! Please use your imagination and do yours different as is the one with the glasses and curly hair! There are videos to make glasses and videos for curly hair if you do not know how and this person has linked you to the pattern of which they used and made it THEIR way! If you want to make it as they have then do so and be nice to these kind people who offer these patterns so kindly and FREE! Blessings to ALL <3

  32. Horrible design to not put links AT THE IMAGES and make users TRY TO FIND IT somewhere “at the end.” Ridiculous.
