The Armchair Caddy is a free crochet pattern and ideal for a quick project in which to store your crochet hooks, books, yarn and more. Perfect for your couch and bedside, too!
My family watches TV almost every day. That is our time to get together, cozy up and enjoy a good movie or TV show. But we also lose at least 1 remote each day. Considering that we need 3 in order to turn the TV, cable, and speakers on, it can be frustrating when you lose one.
So, I designed the Armchair Caddy to make life easier and keep all the remotes in one place. It’s can be used for your chair, sofa, your bedside, a stroller or even a wheelchair. You can store your remotes, magazines, books and even crochet hooks and yarn.
In fact, you can make the armchair remote control holder as big or small as you like. You can add more or fewer storage pockets. On both sides or just one side. This is the perfect pattern that can be adjusted to your needs.
This armchair organizer is also a great solution for wheelchair storage as well as strollers. Add some straps to the side of the caddy to provide more stability and it will make your best multi-purpose storage caddy ever.
So let me now give you the list of supplies you need in order to make this cute Armchair Caddy pattern.
This pattern is also available as an ad-free, printer-friendly pdf pattern that can be purchased at the links below for only a small fee.

Instructions for Armchair Caddy:
First, this pattern can be made as big or as little as you like. I would first figure out how wide you want your caddy to be and then how long. Next, you need to know how many pockets you would like to have and adjust this pattern accordingly.
R1: starting from the 3rd ch from the hook, 1 linked dc in each st, turn (50 sts)
R2 – 105 (can be made shorter or longer): 1 linked dc in each st, turn
After you finish your long rectangle, fold over the ends to create pockets (you can also just have one side have pockets). Sew the sides together using the mattress stitch. Then sew a running stitch to create actual pockets. I have made this Armchair caddy with one running stitch in the middle.
The other side has 2 running stitch lines to create 3 pockets. But you could add more pockets by sewing more “lines” to divide up the large pockets on either side.
In fact, you could even add another smaller rectangular crochet piece to each side to have even more pockets. That piece would be sewn onto the front or into a large pocket.
Once you are finished you just need to fasten off and weave in your ends.
It is now ready and can be used for your chair or sofa. You can even use it for your bed if just make one side have pockets and the other side is tucked underneath the mattress. Sometimes people using this caddy for their stroller and wheelchairs.
