Handmade Knitting Needle Organizer (Free Pattern)
A homemade case for your straight knitting needles is an easy sewing project and a great way to store your needle stash in one compact place. It would make an excellent gift for a friend who knits, especially with a few pretty needles in it. Once filled, it easily rolls up and ties shut with a length of coordinating ribbon. You can make this case with many pockets for needles of different lengths, or customize it with more or fewer pockets to suit your needs. It's an easy project, even if your sewing skills are at a beginner level. And if you don't have a sewing machine, you can hand sew the case in a few hours.
I can hardly believe how long I’ve been without a storage solution for my knitting supplies. Today, I’m sharing this simple tutorial for making a knitting needle organizer to finally keep supplies in order. Over the years, I’ve accumulated almost every size and type of knitting needle, although it seems I never have the right one when I start a new project! But that could very well be because of my lack of knitting needle storage. I have them all thrown loosely about in a few different bins and boxes around the house so it’s no wonder I can never find what I need, when I need it. When it’s time toput it aside, I’ll simply roll it up and wrap the suede lace around to secure the supplies inside. Simple!
