Free Pattern: Knitting Needle Case
All my needles needed a home and I decided to sew a needle case for them: One case for the normal needles and one for the circular knitting needles. There are several tutorials about needle cases on the Internet and I picked up ideas here and there to make my own. A needle roll would probably be to clumsy for all my needles, so I decided to make a case that can be folded.
0,5m Amy Butler fabric in green
0,5m Amy Butler fabric in matching green
0,5m interfacing (vlieseline)
5m ribbon band (skråbånd)
Cut the following pieces from the fabric:
For the outer fabric 54cm width x 52cm height
For the inner lining 54cm width x 52cm height
The interfacing is 54cm x 52cm
The big needle compartment is 54 x 31cm
The medium 20cm x 54cm
The small compartment is 15cm x 54 cm
Cut 2 x 25cm bands and 2 x 60cm bands. Fold the bands and sew them together, so they become narrow bands.
Sew the upper edges of each compartment.
Sew the big compartment onto the lining, then the medium compartment and at last the small compartment. Make as many pockets as you need and keep in mind the big needles need more space. When sewing the medium and small compartment, sew exactly on the same seams as you did with the big compartment. This way you will have enough space for the big needles in the big compartment.
Make sure when you sew the pockets, that you divide the needle case in 3 equally sized parts, so it is easy to fold the case when you want to tie it with the ribbon band.
Place lining, interfacing and outer fabric on top of each other and pin together with pins. Sew all 3 fabrics together with the band (skråbånd). Place 4 ribbon bands at the right side and sew together with the band.
With upper flap folded, so the needles don’t fall out when handling the needle case:
