Eye Glasses Cover

I love to crochet for ma… as she cherishes all my creations and whatever I have made for her until now she has treasured it … and I literally mean ‘Treasured’ … as the crocheted piece goes into one neatly packaged sheet of plastic and into her armoire which comes out only after my constant reminders that ‘have you put that particular crocheted object to use’ and only to go back again in her cupboard in a rather new dust free packing … ha ha ha





So the tough part is going to be to get her to put to use what I make for her … this eye glass cover which has room for a pen along with her reading glasses for her frequent bank visits. (I hope ma is reading this n gets what I am hinting at …)


Here's the pattern if you want to make one 



What you’ll need




Yarn: Laura Knitting Cotton (1 Ball , 50gms)
Hook size: 3.5 mm Boye

Stitches Used
Ch= chain
Sl st = Slip Stitch
Sk= Skip
Sp = Space
Sc = Single Crochet
Dc = Double Crochet


Pattern:

Ch 21



Row 1: In the third ch from the hook ( skipped ch2 count as first sc ) make *[ 1sc, ch1, 1dc sk 2ch ] repeat from * with 1sc in the last ch.




Row 2: Ch 1 turn, sk first dc, in the ch1 sp make *[ 1sc, ch1, 1dc] making * in every ch1 sp from the previous row with 1sc in top ch of the starting ch2.



Row 3: Ch 1 turn, sk first dc, in the ch1 sp make *[ 1sc, ch1, 1dc] making * in every ch1 sp from the previous row with 1sc in last turning ch 1.

Row 4-59: Repeat Row 3

Row 60: Ch 1 turn, sk first dc, in the following 2 ch1 sp make [ 1sc, ch1, 1dc], in the next ch sp 1sc ch4 and 1sc in next ch1 sp ( this is to make the button hole), again in the following 2 ch1 sp make [ 1sc, ch1, 1dc], with 1sc in last turning ch 1.

Row 61: Ch 1 turn, sk first dc, in the following 2 ch1 sp make [ 1sc, ch1, 1dc], in the ch1 sp between the sc made in ch4 sp make [ 1sc, ch1, 1sc] twice, again in the following 2 ch1 sp make [ 1sc, ch1, 1dc], with 1sc in last turning ch 1.

Row 62: Repeat Row 3

After completion of row 62 contine with the same yarn and sc along all four sides of the piece 3 sc making the corners.[1sc for each row means 62 sc  for each length and  19 sc for each width and 1extra sc on each corner making a 3sc corner]

Fold the piece till row 54 and sew along the sides with whip stitch making a 6 row flap for the cover with the button hole.




Sew the button aligned with the button hole.







I really liked working with wattle stitch. 



The simple combination of single crochet chain 1 and double crochet is super easy and gives beautiful texture to the woven material. I am tempted to make one for me as it’s also a perfect size to hold crochet hooks making it a hook case instead of eye glass cover.
  


Please excuse the indoorsy pictures (not in sunlight), as the tutorial was done in evening after getting back from work to get this ready before weekend.

Happy Crocheting and hope you all have a great weekend with family.
