M & M Candy Crochet Hook Holder

How to make a 
Crochet Hook Holder out of the 
M & M Minis Candy container.

First, Buy a M & M Minis Container, 
and eat the M & Ms.
They are usually located
at the checkouts.
FYI :  the entire container only has 250 calories.
Next, remove the label. 
What you will need:
H - Crochet Hook
a few oz. of Worsted Weight yarn-
(I used Red heart black light)
1 cute small button

Single Crochet  (sc)
Slip Stitch ( sl st)

Pattern :
Note-Stitched in the round
R : 1 - Ch 2, 6 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, ( 6sc)
R : 2 - 2 sc in each sc, (12 sc)
R : 3 - *1 sc in the 1st sc, 2 sc in the next sc, Repeat From *, ( 18 sc) 
R - 4 - 1 sc in each sc, ( 18 sc)
R : 5-25 -  Repeat R : 4 
R : 26 - Sl st around the top of tube for a finished Edge.

Lid: Repeat R : 1-4, the sl st to the 9th sc, ch 10, sl st in the same st, this forms your button loop, sl st the last 9 sts, tie off leaving a 9 inch tail. use that tail to sew the lid onto the tube.

Finish: Slip the container into the tube, push the lid up inside the lid portion, use the loop to button the lid in place. 
The lid of the container will not snap shut. 
You can cut it off, but I left mine
 to help keep the form of the lid.
Slip your hooks inside and 
keep this in your to go 
Yarn project bag.
 You can also add a clip 
and clip it to the inside of the strap
of your bag.
