The Sunny Sunglass Case is designed with attention to detail and in a very simple way. The crochet pattern below provides you with pictures of every step of the process, which will make it so much easier for you to make your own sunglass case.

You crochet the sunglass case in one piece. You start by making to bottom which is crocheted in the round. The rest of the sunglass case is also crocheted in the round, which means no thinking about turning and minimum counting.

You change color as you go.

The pattern for the crochet Sunglass case can easily be customized to fit your needs.

The pattern can easily be customized. E.g.:

If you wish the sunglass case to be longer, just crochet more rounds before you make the round with holes for the string of chains to close your case.

You can also adjust the drawstring of chains to your desire – just add or subtract chains. If you crochet fewer chains then be aware to make the string long enough to tie a knot on your sunglass case.

Lastly, you can make the tassels just the size you want. All you have to do is make sure that they can fit through the holes in the case. If you know you want larger tassels must adjust the holes and make them 3 chains instead of 2 chains.

Whatever you prefer, there’s surely a color palette for your crochet sunglass case. First, choose the colors you want to use – it’s also totally okay to make it in one color. Then, all you have to do is follow to directions in the pattern and change color as you go.

Also, read more about colors in the “Yarn”-section below.

When you’re done crocheting the pattern, all you have to do is weave in all the ends and put your sunglasses in your new Sunny Sunglass Case☀️
