2-way cabled vest/cowl - *Inspiration* this one is knit but you could easily crochet this so pull out your favorite scarf pattern and get to crocheting. You may need to adjust the width of the scarf. Once your scarf is long enough, wrap it around yourself and tack the ends to each other then tack the 2 back edges to each other, take it off and sew where you tacked using matching yarn.

Blogger, "I have been having a little trouble keeping track of all my knitting supplies. I needed something to hold all of my supplies and current projects that could easily be tucked away in a closet. I thought that a bucket organizer would be perfect and with knitting needle and crochet hook storage on the outside I could use the inside to hold yarn caddies and works in progress."
