Crochet Remote Holder

Why is there never any room on my nightside table?! I can barely find space for my glass of water let alone an iPad, phone, book, ball of yarn, back scratcher, tv remotes, glasses and this tiara that my four year old crowned me with that I’ve forgotten has been on since breakfast! I look over at my husband’s side and his is overflowing as well. That’s when I realized we needed help. When I saw the gap in between the bed and the table I could instantly envision a crochet organizer hanging there beaming with light as the answer to all our problems.

Fast forward to a future trip up to bed, all our gadgets in hand, there was no shuffling, pushing things off, having things fall, or playing remote Jenga. There was miraculously space on the table! All thanks to this awesome remote holder crochet pattern. Lives. Changed.

About This Crochet Remote Control Holder

The pattern is super simple! It’s my favorite simple stitch – just single crochet and double crochet, which you see in a lot of my patterns (such as my Simple Baby Blanket). It’s often called the Lemon Peel Stitch. With this awesome, textured, easy stitch, you make the back and front pocket and single crochet them together. Then with your yarn needle you weave your yarn in and out to create the pockets and tada!

Now in addition to yarn you will need two hooks to hang this on. I highly recommend the Command 3D size small. I’ve had them on my side table for 4 years with my crochet remote control holder hanging from them and they’ve never flinched. They are removable and the package says it won’t damage your furniture (please ensure you follow the Instructions for your furniture. While I don’t guarantee anything, we use them all over the walls at Christmas and they’ve never damaged a thing).

When it comes to crochet gift ideas, this truly is such a unique, practical, professional-looking item that is sure to be used and loved by any recipient.

Crochet Remote Organizer Pattern Notes

• Chain 1 never counts as a stitch

• The holder is worked from the long side up meaning your chain row will be the long side of the holder.

Assembly

Place Piece B – the Pocket (B) over Piece A – The Back of Holder (A) with both bottom rows and bottom corners in line with each other. Pin in place.

Remote assembly directions

1) Attach CC by inserting hook into the top right corner stitch of B and into the closest stitch of A. Pull through yarn and slip stitch.

2) Working in only A, sc in each st up the right side. At corner st, sc into corner st 3 times.

3) Sc across top of A. At corner st, sc into st 3 times.

4) Sc down left side of A. When at the middle where B is, join by sc into both pieces. Continue to sc down left side into both A & B. When at the corner st, sc into both corner stitches of A & B 3 times.

5) Sc across bottom into both A & B

6) Sc up into both A & B until the place you joined the CC. Insert hook into same stitch where you joined and sc into both B & A. Now working only into B, sc 2 times into that same stitch that you just joined to A but now 2 sc into just B.

7) Along the top of piece B, sc for 8 stitches. Sc into piece A (there’s no exact stitch to sc into, just find a stitch nearest to where you are. You won’t be attaching B to this stitch, the yarn will just help form the top of the pocket {a pocket connection] that you will later sew).

*Sc for 10 st, sc into piece A.* repeat from * to * twice

Sc for 8 st, at corner st, sc 2 times. Insert hook into same st and sc into both B & A.

8) Slip st into the next CC stitch below the middle. Fasten off and weave in loose ends.

Sewing the Pockets

Thread yarn needle with main color and insert it from back below the first pocket connection stitch (the sc you made with the CC to piece A on the previous row). Sew piece A & B from the pocket connection st in a straight line. When you get to bottom weave in loose ends to piece A. Don’t sew into CC.

Repeat for each pocket.

Hang from removable hooks and enjoy!
