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.

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?

"Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize." I just copied and pasted the quote from the front page of the contest. So Yes, you may enter twice, three times or more. Thanks for your comment. Enjoy!
