Today I’m introducing a new weekly series for the month of July, the Sunny Days Crochet Collection. The series will feature a new crochet pattern perfect for the summer months, and I’m excited to share with you today a pattern a for crochet sunglasses case. Using a thick cotton yarn, this case is sturdy and will protect your sunglasses from scratches and dirt while housed in your purse. Just what every girl needs, it’s functional and pretty.
I used juicy coral colours, and a combination of stitches in this pattern, but this is certain to be the perfect project for an experienced beginner. I was once a crocheter who thought some projects beyond me, but I’ve learned that a lot of things that look intimidating are often far more easy than you might initially think. So believe me, you can hook this up without too much trouble!
