I have put together a collection of 5 easy crochet patterns for functional crochet hook storage from hook holders to hook pouches, find your next crochet project.
We all have that one favorite crochet hook that is just perfect. It is our favorite size and color, it is comfortable to hold and the yarn glides over it smoothly.
Maybe you had a custom crochet hook made just for you by the many talented small business owners making crochet hooks.
If you come from generations of crafty people, maybe you inherited one from your mom or grandma. Crochet hooks make great gifts too, from friends for birthdays or from your lovely kids for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day since many fathers and men are picking up this craft, too. Whichever hook it is, they are all super special.
Just imagine this for one moment- you lost it! I know all hooks can be replaced with another one but sometimes hooks are like that favorite T-shirt. It just won’t be the same! It won’t be the same to work with or to hold. And no replacement will hold the same sentimental value as the original!
I have been on the lookout for the perfect crochet storage for quite some time now! However, I was never fully satisfied with any store-bought crochet hook roll or holder. Why? We all have different collections of hooks and notions. So, thinking that one hook holder is going to be perfect for all of us is crazy, right?

Custom Crochet Hook Storage Ideas
I always find the hook rolls do not have enough space for all my hooks. I am sure we all have a favorite crochet hook size and end up buying about 5 different hooks all in our most used size.
But where do you store them safely? Most store-bought crochet hook storage has 1 pocket for each hook size. If you try to put 5 different 4 mm hooks in there, it won’t fit in the smaller pockets and will easily fall out of the larger ones.
This brings us right back to where we do not want to be as crocheters – losing our favorite crochet hook.
Let’s not forget that we are holding one of the most powerful tools in the fiber world – crochet hook! So why not create the perfect storage solution for crochet hooks with an actual crochet hook?!
This way you can completely customize the crochet hook storage to your taste! You can adjust the size of each hook compartment to fit all of those five 4 mm crochet hooks.
And why have a pocket for 1.5mm hook which you do not even own! You can also add extra pockets for other notions like scissors, stitch markers, tape measures and many more little gadgets.
I have even incorporated a large pocket for printed patterns into one of my designs for all the old-school paper pattern crocheters. You can absolutely make your crochet hook storage as functional as you want.
