There comes a time in every knitter’s life that the number of needles and crochet hooks they own starts to get out of hand, and they have to find somewhere to store them all!
Your hooks and needles should be somewhere that is convenient, safe, and well protected – and don’t forget pretty!
If you can identify with the previous statement, don’t worry, we have a solution for you: use a couple of balls of our cotton to knit this original needle case.
You can make it bigger or smaller depending upon your needs (and the number of needles you own), and it’s a quick and easy project.
It’s fastened by two lengths of chain stitch tied closed, and on the inside you’ll find two cabled panels that serve to hold your needles and hooks securely. Slip your needles inside as you wish, and then roll the case closed so you can take them wherever you want to.
