Recently, I found a pattern of an Aluminum Crochet Hook Case here:  http://web.archive.org/web/20010820230737/members.aol.com/lffunt/alhookcase.htm., by Priscilla Hewitt.  It made me really happy.  Only one problem, none of my hooks would fit into pockets as narrow of the ones in this pattern.  I have rheumatoid arthritis. I have put a layer of Sugru on all my hooks so that they are less painful to hold.  So I spent several days thinking of how to make these pockets, large handle, friendly.  I finally came up with an idea and it worked.  Hurray!  I have made 3 cases and all my hooks are now organized.  Double hurray!  I will be showing my version of the above pattern.  My thanks to Priscilla Hewitt, for her inspiration.

Step 1:

110 gm 4 play worsted yarn
4.5 mm crochet hook
Plastic canvas
Yarn needle

You will need to know how to do the following stitches:
Sc-single crochet
dc-double crochet
dct- double crochet turn (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LxYpo-tyi8)
<p>I'm having a lot of trouble with step 5 of this pattern. I think I'm following the pattern correctly but after completing step 5 I end up with 2 small open pockets instead of 1 large one. Could anyone give me any suggestions as to where/what they thick I'm doing wrong?</p>
I am too. I have tried and tried ti figure this out. Can someone please help me?
<p>You won't end up with the wide pocket until the end of step 6. </p>
I too cannot figure this step out &amp; I really want to make this for my Clover Amour hooks. Can someone help please?
<p>I am having problems visualizing what your 2 small open pockets look like. Could you take a picture or two and post them so that I can see what you are seeing. Then maybe I can figure it out, unless you live in American Fork, Utah, then I will just come over.</p>
<p>thanks!!! it was hard to do for me but i take it like a challenge and it came quite good :)</p>
<p>It looks great! Congratulations! and thanks for posting a picture.</p>
