Never tried the helix method? Give this pattern a try!

This soft drawstring pouch protects eyewear from scratches. Use bright colors so you never lose your glasses again. It can also hold all sorts of small objects, such as phone chargers, pens, pencils, and wrapped snacks.

This project works up quickly, taking only one to two hours, so it makes a great last-minute gift. Worked in four colors, this pattern employs the helix method of crocheting in a spiral with four colors, which eliminates an awkward seam.

This is the expanded version of this pattern. A condensed, free version is available on my blog.

This expanded version contains a photo tutorial, abbreviations, detailed explanations for the needle join, extended dc, standing extended dc, standing sc, alternate tasseled drawstrings, and tips for keeping 4 yarn balls organized.

This pattern has been professionally edited by Amy Curtin (Ravelry ID: amerz), editor for Crochet Now magazine.

This pattern has also been tested extensively by my wonderful testers. See this thread in my Ravelry group for details.
