his is what the case looks like closed. It basically closes like an envelope, and buttons at the top. (red button is where it closes)
And here it is opened up.
Supplies you will need
Worsted Weight yarn in any color
Small amount of material for lining
1/8 elastic (optional)
Button for case closure
Anything you want to embellish the case with
With G hook, and ww yarn,
With G Hook, and ww yarn,
Ch 27 (or so, depending on the thickness of yarn)
1) sc in 2nd ch from hook, and each additional ch. Ch 1, turn. (26 sc)
Now, size the case…. Take your hook, and lay it down on the piece you just crocheted. If it seems too small, go back and add in a few chains to the beginning ch 27. If it seems way too big, go and take out a few chains. Remember, some of this will stick out at the bottom and top, around your lining.
2-22) Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
23) In Back Loops Only, sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
24) In Front Loops Only, sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
You just crocheted the middle seam of the case in 23-24
26-47) Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
48) In Front Loops Only, sc in each sc across, Ch 1, turn.
49) In Back Loops Only, sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
You just crocheted the top seam

Lining and pockets.
You will need to use the hook case as a guide.
Lay the hook case on top of a double thickness of your material.
Fold the top seam in. You now have a rectangle.
Cut out the material, using your hook case as a pattern.
This is your lining.
These can be made many different ways.
If you prefer, you can make the same pocket going across the entire lining.
Using your lining as a pattern, cut out 1 piece of material as long as your lining, and as high as the smallest hook you want to keep in this case.
You now have a smaller rectangle.
Fold over top edge of smaller rectangle you just cut, and sew along edge seam. (If you have a serger, I would suggest serging the edge, or even zig-zaging along the edge)
If you would like a smaller pocket, like is pictured, cut off a portion off the shorter edge of the rectangle you have just sewn. Fold this raw edge over and pin. Pin this pocket onto one of the pieces you have cut out for the lining. This will be facing out.
Now, you need to make a smaller rectangle/square to fit into the portion you just cut off.
Cut it long enough to tuck under the raw edge you just pinned, and as high as you want it. Fold over and sew just as you did first pocket.
Tuck it under the pinned edge of the first pocket and pin into place.
If you want to add elastic to your case, now is the time to do it. I put some elastic above my small pocket. Sew one edge to lining. ( I folded this edge over so the raw elastic edge wouldn’t show) Stretch slightly, and sew opposite end to lining. (If this end does not go all the way to the end of lining, fold over and sew to lining also…otherwise, the raw edge will be hidden in the lining seam)
