I go through a pair of sunglasses every couple of years. They get thrown in my purse, in the truck, and everywhere imaginable when we go on vacation. I’ve searched for a case off and on but none of them were tall enough for my sunglasses. Then I thought I could find a crochet case but it’s been really hard, impossible really, to find one to fit my particular pair of sunglasses. You see, I have to have the sunglasses that fit over my eyeglasses and the only ones I like are the ones from Walmart. They’re a bit big but they’re really pretty and get the job done. I’ve made a few of the cases that are floating around the internet but they just aren’t big enough for my sunglasses so I made up my own pattern and I would like to share it with you. I’m really confident when I say that this case will fit almost any pair of glasses or sunglasses.
Stitches used in this pattern (US terms):
- Ch- chain
- St(s) – stitch
- Sl st – slip stitch
- Hdc – half double crochet
- Dc – double crochet
- Yarn: Less than a half of a skein of any worsted weight yarn
- I hook
- Yarn needle
Row 1: Chain 11, hdc in 2nd chain from hook, hdc across (10 sts)
Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), hdc across; turn (10 sts)
Row 3: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), hdc in the next 10 stitches. Put 2 hdc along the side. Hdc 10 stitches across the foundation chain and then 2 hdc up the other side. Sl st to the 1st hdc ( 24 sts)
From now on you will be working in the round. Do not turn your work!
Round 4: Ch 2 (counts as a stitch), dc in the same stitch. “skip a stitch, 2 dc in the next stitch”. Repeat from “ to “ around 10 times. Sl st into the top of the ch 2. (12 v-stitches).
Round 5: Ch 2 (counts as a stitch), Hdc in the next stitch and around. Slip stitch into the top of the Ch 2. (24 stitches)
Repeat rounds 4 & 5: five times.
Round 16: Ch 2 (counts as a stitch), Hdc in the next stitch and around, slip stitch into the top of the Ch 2 and then tie off.
For the tie:
Chain 40 and tie off. Make sure you leave enough yarn at each end to attach the tassels. Weave it in and out of round 16 every two stitches.
Wrap it around your fingers fifteen times.
Then take one end of your tie and slip it under one half of the wrapped yarn.
Take a second piece of yarn and tie it really tight about a half inch from the top knot and then cut the bottom part to create the tassel .
