Today’s post is dedicated especially to those organized people who value order above everything. 😉

With all the tools we have, knitting needles, yarn balls, tapestry needles, patterns, markers, pencils, scissors….trying to keep them organized and in their place can be a chore.

Having your tools handy when you need them not only simplifies your life, but also makes your work neater and more satisfying. They say that organization stimulates creativity and happiness.

For that reason, and because they’re so cute, we’re going to show you how to make a knitters tool organizer in crochet.

This pattern is really easy to make, and you can have it finished in just one afternoon to hang it wherever you like. Grab your hook and some cotton and let’s get started.

Tool organizer base

To form the base of our organizer, we are going to make a granny square in the size and color we like best. We made ours in one color so that you can see the contrast better.

We’ll make it like this:

Row 1

  • Chain 5.

  • Join the ends with a slip stitch to make a ring.

  • Make 2 double crochets and join them by making a slip stitch in the third chain made at the beginning of this round.

  • Make 3 double crochets in the same space.
  • Chain 1.
  • Make 3 double crochets in the next space.

  • Make 3 double crochets in the same space.
  • Chain 1.
  • Make 2 double crochets in the next space and then join it with a slip stitch in the third chain made at the beginning of this round.

In this manner we’ll see how our granny square starts taking shape and that in the corners there will always be 3 double crochets, 2 chains, and 3 double crochets.

Row 3

In this row we can see that spaces are formed between the corners, so now we’ll crochet the rest of the rows as follows:

  • Chain 5.
  • Make 3 double crochets in the space formed before in the corner
  • Chain 1.

  • Chain 1.

  • Make 3 double crochets in the next space in the corner.

Repeat this pattern for the remaining rounds. When you have the desired size, finish the edge with single crochet. You can use more colors to make it more decorative.

Tool organizer pocket

To make the pocket we’ll use the same granny square pattern that we used for the base, but we’ll make it a little smaller and with a different color combination.

Once we have crocheted our base and pocket we’ll sew them together with a tapestry needle leaving the top of the pocket open.

Now we’ll take a hanger (wooden pole, stick…) and join the base to it. You can also decorate the hanger with some cotton yarn to make it prettier.

Now we just have to hang our organizer near our desk, and enjoy the tidiness 🙂
