Small Eyeglass Case

This eyeglass case is good for children’s glasses because of it’s size, but if you or the recipient of this case have larger glasses, just add five more rounds and three more base chains.  I made mine using lime green yarn for the case and purple for the flower.  I didn’t use a button.

Materials:

Case:

  • 3.0 mm crochet hook
  • Astra weight yarn, any colour
  • darning needle
  • scissors
  • eyeglasses

Flower:

  • 3.0 mm crochet hook
  • WW yarn, any colour
  • darning needle
  • scissors
  • button, colour that matches yarn (optional)
  • sewing thread and needle

Dimensions:

2 1/2″ x6″ including the extra rounds after drawstring round.

Case directions:

Base rnd:  Ch 15.  Sc 13, sc 3 in next ch, sc 12, sc 2 ing last ch.  Do not join or chain.  [30]

Rnds 2-35:  Sc 30, do not chain or join.

Rmd 36:  dc1h (double and a half crochet, see tutorial) 30.  Do not join or ch.

Rnd 37-38:  Sc 30.  Fasten off.  Weave in yarn tails.

Note: I recommend saving your yarn scraps for stuffing other projects.

Drawstring directions:

Ch 70.  Fasten off.  Weave in yarn tails.

Little Flower

Dimensions:

1 1/2″

Flower directions:

Base rnd:  MR 6.

Rnd 2:  “Sc, inc” 3x.  [9]

Rnd 3:  “(Sl St, dc 3) in next st” 5x.  Sl st to join.  Fasten off, weave in the yarn tail on the outer edge.

Assembling:

Using a large darning needle, weave the drawstring through the dc1h rnd, and tie the ends together using a knot.  If you made a flower, sew it on now using the tail from the centre back of the flower.  If you are using a button, sew it to the centre of the flower.

      You’re welcome. And would you believe that my actual eyeglass case is green? I used the scanner for the image and it didn’t turn out green.

      A good idea however a glasses case today needs to be funky, try some bold colours to make the glasses case stand out.

  3. Hello! I have been reading through your blog articles and am pleased to tell you that as a fellow blog owner there is nothing that makes me happier than finding another blog owner that shares the same values as I do. I see that instead of using reused and recycled articles fom other blogs you are using your own unique content. I run several blogs in the pet and more specifically, dog niche. I would love for you to check them all out but unfortunately I am afraid that if I post all my links you will mistake me for spam. Therefore I will not post them all, but I would like to post the link to my most successful site for you to review. This is a community based site with forums, blogs, and many other functions. Please review it and contact me with your feedback. Thank you for your time. http://www.PetPedigreeDatabase.com/

      Nice blog–rather, site, Lucio. I’m a dog fan (even if I don’t have one) and this website intrigues me. And yet, I must say that I prefer to have crochet related comments. I must suggest, though, that you add pages of information on the breeds of dogs you listed, rather than just one small image and their breed name. Otherwise, a very nice website!

    Hello Katy,
    first i would like to say what a gorgeous pattern you’ve created with the eyeglass case, i absolutely think it is the cutest!! i am attempting to make this pattern and i’ve worked up to the beginning row of the dc1h but i don’t know how to do the dc1h stitch and i can’t seem to locate the tutorial. can you please tell me where i can find the tutorial? Thank you for sharing this pattern!!

      Um, that means “half-double crochet”, I just don’t know what the abbreviation of that is. Does that help? If not, you yarn over and insert hook in the stitch and pull a loop through. You have three loops on your hook. Now yarn over and pull the hook through all three loops. Half-double crochet stitch made, I think. It’s been ages since I made that, but I think that that is what a half-double is.

      • Raquela says:

        Yes, helpful indeed! thank you. I’ve completed the case, i did the half double crochet, it turned out great! Now i’m working on the flower. this should be my last question, but what is MR?

      • Katy says:

        It’s a “Magic Ring”, where you chain 2 and single crochet the said number in the 2nd chain from your hook. It starts a spiral.

  5. Raquela says:

    oh, btw, half double crochet = hdc.
    Thank you again.

    Awesome site I loved reading your info

    Love the case. I would like to make it for my granddaughter but don’t understand the base round. How do you do 12 more sc after Sc 13, sc 3 in next ch, if you only have 15 chains? I must be reading these instructions incorrectly.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Thanks, that makes sense now.
