If you wear regular eye glasses or sun glasses, you know a glass case is necessary to keep from scratching your lenses.

This premium PDF pattern includes 2 different styled cases that are both quick & fun projects. Both glass case styles would be great scrap buster projects. One case is a drawstring pouch (free patteren found below) and the other is a button case. Both are easy to adjust size to fit all your eyewear needs. They would be a unique item to make for your next market!

Materials Yarn: SOFT # 4 / Worsted Weight (I used Bernat Satin & Caron Simply Soft.) Yardage: 45-60 yds Hook: 5.0 mm Stitch Markers, Scissors, Darning Needle

Stitches & Abbreviations US Terminology ➤ * * = Repeat stitch pattern between * * ➤ Ch# = Chain number of times specified ➤ St/Sts = Stitch/Stitches ➤ SS = Slip Stitch ➤ SC = Single Crochet ➤ SC2TOG = Single Crochet 2 TOGether (worked over 2 sts as decrease) ➤ HDC = Half Double Crochet ➤ DC = Double Crochet ➤ DC2TOG = Double Crochet 2 TOGether (worked over 2 sts as decrease) ➤ PUFF = Puff Stitch: *Yarn Over (YO), insert hook, YO, pull through stitch & draw up a loop.* Repeat 2 more times, for a total of 7 loops on your hook. YO, draw through 6 loops, YO draw through remaining 2 loops. See “Notes & Special Instructions” for an alternative PUFF st.

Notes & Special Instructions ➤ Alternative PUFF st – For more stitch definition, you can use a 9-loop PUFF st: *Yarn Over (YO), insert hook, YO, pull through stitch & draw up a loop.* Repeat 3 more times, for a total of 9 loops on your hook. YO, draw through 8 loops, YO draw through remaining 2 loops. ➤ Stitch pattern increment is any EVEN number. ➤ Chains at beginning of a round/row NEVER count as a stitch. ➤ Total number of stitches per round/row in (#) at end. ➤ This pattern can be made in all 1 color or 2 (or more) colors: If using multiple colors, alternate colors every round. ➤ I tend to crochet TIGHT, so you may need to adjust your hook size to accommodate. First DC Options:  In this pattern, the 1st DC st in rows/rounds will always be noted as a regular DC.  There will be NO Chain instructions on rows/rounds beginning with a DC.    **Use your preferred method for 1st DC stitch of these rows/rounds.** 1 – Chainless Beginning DC:  This is the technique I prefer to use & this pattern is written using it.  I use this same technique for 1st DC/FPDC/BPDC of rows/rounds. Moogly Video Tutorial for Chainless Beginning DC stitch 2 – Stacked SC:  Stacking 2 SC will result in a similar look to a DC st without added bulk of a Ch2. Brianna K Video Tutorial for Stacked SC 3 – Ch2:  This will get your sts to height of a DC & then place a regular DC in 1st st of row/round. ➤ I suggest using the invisible join for a seamless look when finishing off.

Use 5.0mm hook for this section.

This piece is worked in Rounds.  At end of each round, SS to 1st st to join. & do NOT turn.

RIGHT/FRONT side of piece will be facing you at all times.

If you need it to fit a narrower/wider pair of glasses, +/- number of beginning chains.

If you need it to fit a shorter/taller pair of glasses +/- number of times you repeat Rnds 2-3.

Rnd 1:

TIP:  Be sure to chain loose enough to work into both sides of the starting chain.


Ch9, 3 SC in 2nd back bump from the hook, 1 SC in each of next 6 back bumps, 3 SC in last back bump.


Continue working in same direction (into back side of the chain):  1 SC in each of next 6 sts down back of starting chain.     (18)

Rnd 2:

REMINDER:  Pattern is written using a chainless beginning DC. Use your preferred method for the 1st DC.


1 DC in 1st st, 1 PUFF in next st.  1 DC in next st, 1 PUFF in next st.  Repeat around.     (18)

Rnd 3:

Ch1, 1 SC in each st around.     (18)

Rnds 4-17*:

Repeat Rnds 2-3 (*7 more times)


NOTE:  +/- repeats of these 2 rds to reach approximate desired height to fit glasses.

Rnd 18:

1 DC in each st around.     (18)

Rnd 19:

Ch1, 1 HDC in each st around.     (18)

TRIM:

NOTE:  You may want to use a smaller hook size so TRIM does not get wavy.

Fasten off.  Weave in ends


Drawstring (Cord) Pattern

DRAW-

STRING

OPTIONS

#1:  Use 1 color for complete chain.

#2:  Use 2 colors held together for complete chain.

#3:  Use 2 colors & alternate color for each st:  Make slip knot with both color yarns, then alternate which color yarn you pick up on each st.  Finish off with slip knot with both yarn colors.  You can find a tutorial of this method by tester Tonya Saunders, at the bottom of this blog post:  https://marshayarndoodles.com/2023/02/imagination-soap-sack.html 

Rnd 1:

NOTE:  You can +/- number of sts to make DRAWSTRING to your desired length.  I did 2 TIGHT slip knots at each end & kept a little tail (instead of weaving it in).


Chain 60-80 (desired length of drawstring).


Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Thread Drawstring

Thread DRAWSTRING in & out through DC sts in Rnd 18, ending a few stitches from where you began.
