Summer Stripes Sunglasses Case - Part of the Charity Stash Bash CAL

Hello friends, it's time for May's Charity Stash Bash pattern (I know it's a little late) and this month we have this super cute sunglasses case.  This pattern may also be used as a pretty pencil case or to keep your hooks in.  I will be making these as pencil cases for the shoe box appeal and adding some colouring pencils to go with them.

Work 2 rounds of surface crochet in contrasting colours, over rounds 2 and 3 on both pieces.





Joining & Finishing

With front on top and wrong sides together sc both pieces together.  You might find it helpful to place stitch markers at intervals holding both pieces together to ensure sts are joined correctly. 

Start at top left corner of front piece working through both pieces.  




Sc around until you reach the top right corner.  




Now working in front piece only, surface crochet across the top sts of round 4 until you reach the other side, sl st to first sc.  Turn.




Continue around the top of the back piece, sc in each unworked st until centre st of centre 3dc group, [sc, ch6, sc] in next st, sc in each remaining st, join with sl st to 1st sc of join.  Fasten off and weave in ends.




Sew on button.






Pin it for later...




I hope you enjoy the pattern and if you join in with the CAL be sure to post your photos in the Facebook Group or use #lullabylodge on instagram.


Take care for now...
