It’s that time of year again, it’s hot, sweaty, bright, and we all live with our sunglasses permanently plastered to our face. No big deal, but sometimes you need a cozy place to put your sunglasses when your sitting in the AC awaiting the heat outside. Which means it's time to make your own crochet sunglass case!
You can easily crochet this project in under 30 minutes (yes, you read that correctly). It really is that easy! This sunglass case has a beautiful texture as well using the back loop of a single crochet stitch. You won’t regret making this project, and you will probably end up crocheting once for everyone in the family!
I strongly recommend a cotton yarn for this project. Cotton is durable, soft (we don’t want to scratch those glasses!) and the cotton fiber is unlikely to stretch over time.
