A few years ago now, I crocheted a lovely little sunglasses case with some left over yarn and to this day, I still love this pattern. When I first started blogging, I used to have little series for patterns, one for winter, another for summer, and this pattern belonged to one of those collections of patterns. The colours are just fun and summer and it’s easy to work up, and super functional. It’s a free pattern, as it always has been and one I hope you love. With sunnier days ahead of us, I hope you’ll give this pattern a try. It’s perfect for lipglosses too! Or even your crochet hooks if you like to crochet on the go. I like to crochet in the car and having a safe place to store your hooks while you’re out and about is ideal if you are carrying around multiple projects. Repurpose the finished piece as you like, the sky is the limit.

I’m excited to share with you today a pattern a for crochet sunglasses case. Using a worsted 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!
