Big Hook Bucket


More details below.


Make this sturdy hook holder in one evening with half of a ball of a super bulky yarn (55 yds or so), and a recycled plastic ring. Using a ring for the rim of the bucket base makes it even more stable than it already is.

Big Hook Bucket’s honeycomb top has seven compartments for sorting your jumbo-sized crochet hooks and other project tools. I like to use the center hole for large scissors. I designed it to go with the five largest crochet hooks I offer at my website: Q, R, S, T, U (15.75 mm up to 25 mm). Get this pattern free as part of a kit: a set of all five jumbo hooks, this pattern–plus the plastic ring while supplies last.

Skill Level


Most of this bucket is made of tight single crochet stitches {UK: dc}. Front post trebles {UK: dtr} stabilize the sides.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn these skills:

  • How to crochet around a plastic ring reinforcement for the base.
  • How to add post stitches for sculptural structure.
  • How to create a quick seven-slotted honeycomb-like top.

Finished Dimensions

6″ (15.2 cm) wide across base and 4.5″ (11.4 cm) high. Height is easily customized.


  • Crochet hook: US M/13 (9 mm). Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.
  • Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick (80% Acrylic, 20% Wool, 108yds/98m per 6oz/170g), one half skein. Yarn substitution advice: choose a yarn thickness classified as a #6 Super Bulky Weight or look on the yarn label for a recommended crochet hook size range of US M/13 {9 mm} to US Q {15.75 mm or 16 mm, depending on the brand}. These yarns have also been called Super Chunky, Roving, or Polar Weight.
  • Ring with an outer diameter of 5.5″ (14 cm), such as a plastic lid with its center removed.
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends.
