I am working on the walker organizer and have a question. What colors are the flaps or do they follow the same color pattern of the 3 panels?

This is a great idea. I would love to have one of these and I do not have a walker. I take a rolling shopping basket with me when I go to the market and this would be a great attachment to place in the inside of the shopping cart. I can place my coupons and and sales ads in there just to be sure I have everything I need.

So my Auntie would love to have this to attach to her walker. She is still so very active and having this attached to her walker I know would make her life a lot easier. I hope to get her input on how large to construct the panels so that it is tailor made for her needs.

This is great! My mother has a walker now and it can be difficult for her to maneuver around while trying to be independent. I like the idea for sections for different things to carry around. I'd even consider making two of them, one for home and another for being out in the public at doctor appointments etc.

Tried this craft? What did you think?

This is a truly wonderful idea. I volunteer at an assisted living facility and there are a lot of residents that could use these. I think I will use this pattern to get my crocheting friends to make up a bunch at our next get together. It would really be a great surprise for them.

This crochet walker organizer is very practical, very functional. Perfect accessory to attach on grandma or grandpa's walker to accommodate all their stuff while going for a walk, going to the hospital, to see a doctor, going to the park, and many other activities. Color used here is perfect for the oldies.

I made a walker organizer for a couple of ladies with MS a few years ago and they loved them. The only main difference was I made buttonholes and used buttons to hold it on instead of velcro.

This is a simple project that I can make in a hurry. It would be very handy for my mothers walker, both in her apartment and outside of it. It would also be a very handy accessory for a stroller. You could have bottles, cups, toys, etc within easy reach.

This is a wonderful grand daughter is learning to crochet and some of her friends wanted to learn so we started a crochet learning circle for the summer. I think this is just the project they need. It will not only teach them about crochet but when they are finished we can take them to a nursing home. I know they will be appreciated and what a great way for them to learn sharing at the same time. Thank you for offering this.

I recently retired from an administrative position at an assisted living facility, and I probably saw just about every version of a walker organizer out there. They are incredibly useful but some designs do have their faults. One adjustment I would suggest to this project is to make the pockets on both the inside and outside of the walker. It balances better that way.

I had been looking for a pattern for two dear friends that are using walkers now. I was hoping to find one in my favorite hobby of crochet. Today it popped up and I can't wait to get started. My plan is to line the back with a heavy fabric to give it strength and keep it from slipping. I think I will make a few extra's and donate them to our local nursing homes. I had my knees replaced and it is hard to carry anything when you are using a walker

Wow this is The Best Crochet Walker Organizer is have seen yet. It has pockets for every thing and it straps on with velcro. I can see my mother-in-law using this with her walker. So much better then hearing her say, "Here, carry this". LOL She can put quite a bit in this and it will be organized. The pattern is well written and easy to understand. I think I'll do it in her favorite colors to add a little more spark. I like that the pattern is right here on this page and there is a print tab. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is a terrific idea. But it definitely needs more bright colors to cheer Grandma up. There is lots of roomy pockets in this organizer so she can stash lots of her important belongings to more around with her. Should make her feel a little more indepent. The grand kids will probably like hiding stuff in there too.

If you know a group of crocheters that need a project to work on this is ideal. This would be a great pattern / item to make for donation to charitable organizations, care homes, women children shelters, hospitals, senior centers and plenty of others I cant think of right now.

I completely agree. This is a perfect charity project, especially for groups that are looking for something that wouldn't require a lot of time or yarn to make and donate. And this is a useful gift as well. This would definitely be a practical way for many elderly people using walkers to carry important things with them, especially the men who wouldn't be carrying a purse.

What a great idea! I'm quite a novice crocheter, and I'm going to make it for my mother (96 next!), then see if the Care Home would be interested in more for other residents. )

Great little pattern. My first thought was to use for baby stroller. Can't wait to try with some pretty colors and happy buttons!

Love it! Its brilliant and can be put to so many different uses.
