Free Pattern: Crochet Glasses Case

glasses case 1

This glasses case is a quick and cute project that will keep your glasses from getting scratched in your purse or backpack. Find the free pattern below!

Cheap sunglasses have long been a necessity for me, because I have a bad habit of tossing them into backpacks, resulting in scratches all over the lenses. No more! I designed this fast, easy, and cute crocheted glasses case to protect my sunglasses, and I hope that it will save you a few pairs as well. 🙂

  • 25-30 grams of worsted weight cotton yarn, about 50 yards (shown in Knit Picks Dishie and Rowan All Seasons Cotton)
  • 4.5mm crochet hook
  • yarn needle for weaving in ends

Ch. 13. Starting in second ch. from hook and working only into the BACK LOOPS of the chain, sc 11, then 2 sc in last st. The pic below has the wrong number of chains, but you can see where I’ve inserted the hook through only the back loop.

Next, rotate the chain 180 degrees so you’re working around the end and into the front loops of the same stitches. Sc 11, then 2 sc in last st (26 st total).

This is how your first round should look when you’re done:

Working around the chain creates a nice bottom edge of your case and lets us work in continuous rounds for the rest of the project.

Now sc in each st around until your case is 6.5 inches long (or whatever your desired length below the drawstring is).

For the drawstring, we’ll work one round of dc stitches. Ch. 2 (counts as first dc), then dc 25. Sl st into the ch 2, then sc 2 more rounds, ending with a sl st into the next stitch. Fasten off. Using a few yards of your yarn, make 2 braids about 14 inches long. Thread each braid in between the dc stitches so that both ends of the same braid are on the same side of the case. So the ends of one braid are on the left, and the ends of the other are on the right.
