Who’s ready for a new crochet pattern? 🙋 I have a sweet little pattern for you guys today. The Happy Daisy Crochet Glasses Pouch is a simple little glasses or sunglasses case with a cute graphic floral flap. I love easy little crochet projects for warm summer days, don’t you? Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean you need to pack up your yarn and hooks! I mean, I need something to keep my hands busy while I’m watching The Bachelorette! Hahaha… anyone else watching? (Psst – If you are, tell me in the comments! I want to hear your thoughts.)
But okay back to these cute little cases. Maybe you are like a real adult who has a glasses case and doesn’t just throw your sunglasses into your bag to bang around and get scratched up and bent and broken and lost like I have in the past. If so, I’m really proud of you. Good job. If not, hey – maybe you could make a super cute daisy glasses pouch to help with that whole situation. 🙂 Let’s make some, okay?

This pattern uses American crochet terms. HEREThe main pouch portion of this pattern is worked in what I call the Lemon Peel Stitch, which I have a photo tutorial for right .
Crochet Glasses Pouch Pattern
Row 1: With Color A, begin by making 12 foundation single crochet stitches. (You can find a video tutorial on the foundation single crochet stitch here.) OR Ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each remaining ch (12 fsc or sc).
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in same st, dc, *sc, dc, repeat from *4 times (6, sc, 6 dc). (In other words, alternate sc and dc stitches. In rows 3 on, you will always be working sc into dc and dc into sc.)
Rows 3 on: Repeat Row 2 until piece is about 14 inches or 35 cm long. I did 43 total rows. Finish off, weave in ends.
At this point you should have a strip of fabric about fourteen inches long that we will sew into our pouch. Start by folding the strip in half width-wise keeping the edges matched up. Next, thread a length of matching yarn onto your yarn needle and sew the edges of the strip together. Finally, weave in your yarn ends to secure the seam.
When your little pouch is finished, it is time to crochet that cute little daisy flap!

Isn’t that little half daisy cute? I love those loopy petals. With your flap and pouch crocheted, you are ready to join them together. Start by lining up the edge of your flap with the top edge of the back of the pouch. Using Color B (the color of your daisy center), work single crochet stitches through both the flap and the back edge of the pouch. Using single crochet stitches gives you a more finished edge along the top of your glasses case.
You are almost done! The final step is to use a sewing needle and coordinating thread to attach your button to the front of the pouch. Be sure to line up the button with the chain 10 loop.
And that’s it! Slip in your sunnies and glasses to keep them scratch free and ready to wear. What do you think of my little crochet glasses pouch? I think it’s pretty cute. 🙂
That’s it for today, friends! Happy Making!
