When I did my article on 10 smart ways to organize crochet hooks I included a spiral fabric hooks organizer that I thought looked awesome. I just saw that there is a free crochet pattern on Ravelry for something similar that you could make for yourself. Cool!

Free Crochet Pattern

This crochet pattern is called the Tower of Babel because when it’s all ready it looks like this:

The design is by Eleanor Howe and the pattern is offered as a free Ravelry download.

The Fabric Version

If you’re curious about the organizer that I had seen first it’s the Seabury Spiral Organizer:

Would you be more likely to buy the fabric organizer or more likely to crochet your own?

    I’m definitely going to have a go at crocheting my own Tower of Babel – the pattern is downloaded and waiting to be printed!

      @craftgirl78 Yay – I’m glad I shared it then. I’d love to see how yours turns out!

    Great crafty idea! i have seen the fabric ones and they are lovely and $$$$ however I have too many needles and sets to realistically consider for organizing. I could see a use for the small crochet Tower of Babel for a table during a class or open knitting night, swatch yarn tasting night.

    Thanks for sharing the pattern. Will I actually make it? Who knows, but now at least it is an option :).

  5. I DID IT TODAY !~! I crocheted one like yours today during the Jack Frost detective show that my husband and I have enjoyed watching. I used Wool of the Andes by Knit Picks in Pumpkin and it came out perfectly cool. I glued a leather circle to the bottom to keep the hooks from falling out when I picked it up but the rest is just like yours.

    Thanks so much for the pattern.

      @Lynda M O I haven’t actually made this one yet, although I’ve got it in mind to do so, but loved the pattern and that’s why I wanted to share it here. The leater bottom makes perfect sense! I’d love to see a photo of yours if you get a chance!
