This N That Sunglasses Cover

By now, your brain must have properly stored that in designing, we always go for the focal point. Two many embellishments are overdone. Be it in fashion, interior decoration, art, designing etc. Keeping it simple and minimal is the modern mantra!

Bored with the same old plain black Bulky sunglasses cover, the customer asked me for a funky, colourful and bright cover. Something which was sturdy to hold the sunglasses and stylish to carry along. So, I chose a bright funky cotton yarn ombre and decided to follow a simple basic pattern. Voila! I achieved that.

Process:

The procedure to make this pouch is very simple. to give a closer stitch look, I have used a smaller crochet hook than what is generally recommended to make this sunglasses cover. The design is alternate Single Crochet Back Loop only (SCBLO) and Single Crochet Front Loop Only (SFLO).

R 1: Ch 11, Single Crochet (SC) in the 2nd ch from the hook, SC in each remaining ch to end; turn. (10 sts)
R 2 – 3: Ch 1, SC in each st across; turn. (10 sts)
R 4: Ch 1, SC in 10 sts across, SC 3 along the side, SC 10 across the foundation chain, SC 3 on the other side; join with a Sl st in first SC of the round, do not turn. (26 sts).

R 5: SCBLO, SCFLO around 26 stitches.  Continue this step until you reach the desired length of the cover.

R 6: Reverse Single Crochet/ Crab Stitch around to give that finishing touch to the edge.

You can create the edging with one round of SC only. It all depends on what kind of finishing look you prefer.

Brim with side loop:-

R1: Change the yarn to white and Chain 2; Double Crochet (DC) around; join at the beginning of the row.

R2: Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Double Crochet alternatively around till the brim is 1″.

  • in the last row add chain 3 in the end and join at the beginning of the row.

R3: Finish off with Reverse single crochet stitch or crab stitch to give a fine edging; Single Crochet in the ch 3 space; join at the beginning.

Brim without side loop:-

R1: Double crochet around with white yarn.

R2: Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Double Crochet alternatively around till the brim is 1″.

R3: Finish off with Reverse single crochet stitch or crab stitch to give a fine edging.

Crochet Wristlet: Chain 60-70 based on the wristlet length. Sew the ends in the inside of the pouch. 

Product Specifications:

Dimensions:-

  • Height: 6.5″
  • Width: 3″

The sizes can be altered based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.

Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
