This organizer is very functional and practical for moms who love to crochet. Instead of having to place her stuff in a place that she may forget sometimes, make her an organizer like this so she can place all her yarns, hooks, needles, and other things all in one place.

Vannas Choice yarns are one of my favorite yarns. It is available in a variety of colors. The video tutorial was very informative and helped me with the attachment of the pocket to the organizer. I would have really liked to have seen a picture included with the video or a still image included with the written directions of how the organizer looks on a chair.

All the couch potatoes in my family would appreciate an item like this. I have to make one for myself first though.

I really like this and need to get busy making a couple for Christmas gifts. My aunt will really benefit from this. She has a remote, a note pad, pen, TVGuide, and a pocket cross word book. Now they will be close at hand, including her cell phone. I am going to line one pocket for small things like pens or candy.

Does General Hospital still come on? Seriously though, I really need this caddy. When sitting on the sofa with my hubby he is constantly asking me, where is my cigarette lighter or remote. Now, if he would use the caddy, I will not be hearing that question any longer.

This will make the perfect Christmas gift for my Mom! It'll help her to keep all the smaller things together like her remote, eyeglass case, crochet hooks, devotional book, so she's not having to search for them all. Thanks for this pattern and the video tutorial too. I'm adding it to my Christmas project list right now!

This is a great item to have on all of your chair and sofa arms throughout your entire house. My kids and my husband are always leaving their things on the seat cushions and then they get sat on. I am hoping that maybe just maybe if they had a pocket to stash their things in then maybe this would stop.

These are quick and simple to make, and the variation of stitches used makes it nice to look at too. I like these for holding small projects, magazines, or remotes for the t.v. They are also great for keeping my cats from scratching the arms of the couch and chair. It would be nice to have a way to secure them. Maybe a non-slip backing of some sort would help keep them in place better.

If you take a yarn needle from the bottom, depending how wide you want each pocket, and sew each piece together. Both up and back down. Instead of one big pocket you can make indivisible pockets.

I definitely need to make at least 2 of these, maybe 3. We need these for all of our remotes! Right now they are just sitting on the fireplace mantle, which can be a pain if you need a different remote after you sit down. The pattern looks easy to follow, and you could make this in any color you like, to match your decor!

I love projects that also help you stay organized. My husband is always complaining about my supplies laying all over the couch and bed, so this organizer would be perfect to keep it together and close by when i need it. Also, I constantly set my remote down and thrn can't seem to find it, so this would end that as well.

Excellent idea to keep your favorite spot to sit neat and organized. Looks like a very handy organizer for anyone that likes to keep books, pens, and other such items next to them in their favorite seat. Looks very simple and easy to make and every chair and sofa in my house could certainly use one of these.

Wow, this has so many possibilities. I have a small caddy that just doesn't hold enough items between knitting, crocheting and reading materials I like to keep handy. Pattern looks simple enough and I like the others idea of lining it and also using it in the car or van.

I can imagine making this organizer for my mom who is constantly writing something. My mom is still very much up and about at 85 but I see her in the future as someone who will spend longer hours in front of the TV set. I would like her to have the things she would need in her daily activities like pens, her favorite magazines, her sewing kit, pair of scissors, eyeglasses, hearing aide close by. So I imagine this Crochet Organizer Caddy from Red Heart is the perfect organizer for her. The color here is a good color but you may make this in a color of your choice.

This is a fabulous organizer, I made one for my daughters car, using a flannel liner she's got 4 children and things inevitably get tossed all over this has helped her a lot. I'm oing to make a few more for a couple of other people I can think of that lose things as well. Thanks for the pattern, it's a quick, fun and easy work up! -)

I just love this Crochet Organizer Caddy from Red Heart. I have made these for my van by making it longer and using a shower curtain to line the inside, placing it over the back seat. It's a great idea for the home too. I think the pattern is very well written, for me though like for the ones I have for my van, I will put a liner inside so things can't come though the stitches and makes for easy cleaning. Thank you for this free pattern.

This is such a genius idea - my mom is always losing her remote in the couch cushions, so I think I'm going to make her one!
