I made these colourful crocheted pencil holders for my children. Now, all their pens and pencils will be organised (hopefully).
To start with, I got a container (an empty yoghurt pot/coffee tin) and chose yarn/hook (I used size 3 cotton thread and 1.75mm hook). Then, I crocheted a flat circle as wide as the diameter of my container (1st. round – 6sc into magic ring, 2nd round – 2sc in each st around (12), 3rd round – *sc, inc* x6 (18) and so on, adding 6 sts to each round until needed size). After that, I continued making the rounds without any increases to match the height of my container.
