It’s warm, and sunny out, and sunglasses seem to be a permanent fixture on many of our faces, especially at the beach! But when you aren’t wearing them, don’t just throw them in your bag, slide them into a handmade sunglass pouch!

I have really fallen back in love with working into the back loop lately, and so I decided that I wanted the whole case to feature this ribbed technique. This technique is achieved by using a basic single crochet, but working into the back loop only. Single crochets require a little more time and patience, but the finished fabric is just gorgeous!

To give it a little more, I decided to combine one of my favorite colors - the creamy Ecru, with a fun, bright, Summer-y color to give a dip dyed effect. This is right on trend, and would be awesome in any fun bright color, or even an ombre effect!

The pouch is finished with a snap button, but an alternative to this would be to leave off the flap, crochet a chain loop instead, and sewing on a respective sized button.

In addition to the yarn and hook, you’ll also need: Waste Yarn or Stitch Marker, Tapestry Needle, Sewing Needle and Thread - Recommend Silamide Thread and a Size 2 0.5” (1.27 cm) Snap Button
