An easy Summer Patriotic craft, this Crochet Sunglass Case uses up very little yarn. An easy Red White and Blue crochet, this pattern uses simple stitches to create a case that is both cute and useful!
Not only is this a quick Crocheting idea, it hardly takes up any yarn at all. This means you can just gather up all of your scrap left over yarn balls and create something beautiful and useful. You can easily crochet a sunglass case for each member of your family!

Since Fourth of July is just around the corner, I chose a Red, White and Blue Crochet Pattern, but you can change the colors easily to suit your occasion.
crochet sunglass case tutorial:
Start by creating your foundation chain and joining it to form a ring. You can make this chain as big or as small as you want your Crochet sunglasses case to measure. I have the exact stitch numbers I used in the free pattern below.
TIP: Make sure you don’t twist your chain while forming a loop. Double check to avoid ripping out your stitches and redoing it (which yours truly had to do!)
Work in a stripe pattern, with entire single crochet rows.
Because we are working in the round, it is easy create the single row stripe pattern without any messy carryover of yarns.
If you are uncomfortable crocheting in the round, you can alternately create two identical rectangle piece and join them together.
Next, it’s time for the blue! I added a fun shell stitch like pattern with Treble Crochet stitches.
I love the treble crochet, makes this part of the project go super fast!
To finish off the project, I added a border row using a crochet hook one size smaller so that the stitches would fit in neatly.
There is no sewing to finish up this project! How cool is that? Simply crochet the bottom edge shut with a row of single crochet stitches.
I had initially planned on adding small velcro fasteners to close the top edge. But the sunglasses fit in the case so snugly and comfortably that I found the velcro totally unnecessary.
And thats it! This Crochet Sunglass case is also so colorful and easy to find in my purse or the beach bag. So useful!
