I don’t mind trying generics/off-brands and more times than not, have been rewarded with getting an equally functional item for a much lower price. This isn’t the case with combination needle organizers. Any that I found at a lower price didn’t seem to accommodate circular knitting needles, or they didn’t accommodate the 14″ straight needles, or they only held a max of maybe 12 sets of needles, or didn’t have a piece of fabric to fold over the top to help prevent all of your needles and crochet hooks from sliding out should the organizer get up-ended. This one fits the bill and more. * It has 28 pockets: * 18 are narrow pockets for straight knitting needles, double-pointed needles, and/or crochet hooks. These pockets are about 1-1/2 inches wide by either 5, 8, or 11 inches deep. I have put my dpns and smaller hooks in the bottom/short pockets, my 10″ straight needles and medium sized hook (a 9″ size I) in the middle/medium pockets, and my 14″ straight needles in the top/tall pockets. It even accommodates my pair of 14″ size 17 (12.75mm) needles with room to spare * 10 of the pockets are wide for accommodating circular knitting needles. All are about 5″ wide by about 5-1/2″ deep, except the bottom two: the last regular pocket is 5″ wide by only 5″ deep and the zippered one on the bottom is about 4-1/2″ wide by 4″ deep–this little zippered one is perfect for holding yarn needles, stitch markers, and other tiny notions. * Overall, this organizer is currently holding 19 sets of knitting needles and 5 crochet hooks and I have room for more. * It came with little iron-on (or maybe they’re sew-on) pocket tags pre-printed with crochet and needle sizes (cr sizes A-N, kn sizes 000-19). Since I’m still playing around with how I’m organizing mine, I haven’t tried attaching any to the pockets yet. Instead I used those super-skinny 1.75″x0.5″ Avery return labels to mark my pockets until I decide on a permanent org-chart. 🙂 * I actually dumped this upside-down just to see how many needles would fall out and I only had 2 of my skinnier hooks and 3 dpns slide completely out and onto the floor. Not exactly a scientific test, but it gave me an idea of what kind of mess I could expect if my toddler got ahold of this. I also suspect if I tied the bundle tighter that I might have even less loss of needles. So, like I said, this is well worth the money to protect and keep your needles and hooks organized in one place (instead of rattling around in the bottom of your knitting bag or sitting at the bottom of your giant plastic tote full of shopping bags full of yarn). 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 7 of 7 people found the following review helpful You’ll be amazed by the many pockets in this case., October 1, 2013 By Amazon Customer “vodkarockstar” (Sacramento, California) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: della Q Combo Knitting Case for Straight & Double Point & Circular Knitting Needles; 004 Red Stripes 101-1-004 I am relatively new to crochet and knitting but in the past year I’ve collected a whole lot of needles. I simply adore this case and all of its brilliant colors. Additionally the amount of pockets for various size needles are great. The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because my larger needles (US 17+), require the use of one pocket per a needle. That means the larger needles combined take up two pockets per. At the same time sometimes I’m able to fit 4 needles per pocket with my much smaller needles. So I guess it’s a trade off. What’s nice about this case is that I don’t have to worry about my needles falling out. The big flap that flips over the needles keeps them very secure when traveling with my needle set. There’s even a pocket with a zipper to make sure my markers, tape measure and yarn cutter are not lose. This della Q may seem a little pricey compared to other needle carrying cases but it is well made with its double lining and the fabric is so luscious and bright. I will have this case forever so I don’t have to worry about shelling out more money later due to sub-par manufacturing. Also, I’ve seen the exact same case at a local yarn shop and they were charging 20 dollars more for it. I liked this product so much that I also bought one for my boyfriend’s mother about the same time I bought mine and she absolutely loves it! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 5 of 5 people found the following review helpful Della Q cases make a great gift, November 14, 2014 By Amazon Customer (Texas) – This review is from: della Q Combo Knitting Case for Straight & Double Point & Circular Knitting Needles; 023 Ocean Stripes 101-1-023 I am not a knitter. I have a friend who is and I have tried several times to give her a gift related to her knitting hobby. While gracious, I can tell I never get the right thing…until this year when I got her a Della Q circular knitting needle case and two of their combo cases. She was ecstatic. She was able to organize all her needles and she praised the design of the case. She said the quality and material were excellent. She has told me twice since, how wonderful these cases are. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
