Introduction: Crocheted Pencil Holders

Today I will be giving you some easy steps on how to crochet a pencil holder. If your desk or drawers are messy and full of pens and pencils and you want a fun, but cool way to make your desk cleaner, make sure to check out how to make this cool pencil holder!


inc= 2 single crochets in the same stitch

sc = single crochet


Yarn (any color you choose)

Hook (size depending on what kind of yarn you choose)

Beans or Beads(or anything else small and heavy)


Step 1: The Base

First, gather your supplies.

For the bottom...

Round 1: sc 6 in a magic ring

Round 2: inc until the next round

Round 3: sc 1, inc

Round 4: sc 2, inc

Round 5: sc 3, inc

Round 6: sc 4, inc

Round 7: sc 5, inc

Round 7-22: sc in each stitch

When you reach the end, tie off your yarn and move on to the next step.

If the pencil holder is not tall enough for your pencils, you can make it taller.

Step 2: Decoration!

If you want to add some decoration, you can crochet the base a little differently. When you are done with the single crocheting all the way around, you can follow these directions.

Find a piece of ribbon and wrap it around your pencil holder. To hold it in place, you can hot glue it or use any other type of glue. To make it look cuter, you can tie a bow out of the ribbon and hot glue it to the pencil holder.

Also you can put pom-poms on the top of pencils or pens by wrapping yarn around your fingers 50 or more times and then tying the middle of the ball you formed with another piece of yarn. Trim the pom-pom until it looks like a pom-pom.
