Red Heart Free Pattern

Pencil Can Holder Project

Get creative without needing to knit or crochet! Cover a can with yarn to use for pencils, brushes, scissors, glasses or even your knitting needles and crochet hooks. Great gift idea!

This free pattern is simply called a Pencil Can Holder. Great idea to store those crochet hooks that we loose between the cushions of the couch.

    I always knew that yarn had many, many more uses than crocheting or plastic canvasing.
