Seaside Sunglasses Pouch

It’s almost summertime! Sunshiny days full of lemonade, bonfires, friends, family, trips to the zoo, trips to the spray park, and so much more!

But what is one thing that is a MUST-HAVE for summertime? Sunglasses!

Now, this isn’t a post about the importance of proper eyewear when out in the sun, but rather a post about what you need to PROTECT that eyewear.

Enter, the Seaside Sunglasses Pouch!

This pouch came about after I had made a simple pouch for myself and then my mom asked me to make her a couple pouches for her own sunglasses. I had a few issues with my own pouch and decided to work on a fresh, new pattern for hers.

My goals were to have a pouch that worked well with variegated or self-striping yarn, as well as one that looked cute with a tie and tassels because any boho tassels on my yarn creations are life. #bohotasselsforever

This pouch is perfect to throw in your bag to keep your sunglasses free from damage, plus it’s super cute and I’m sure all of your friends will want you to make one for them after they see how cute yours is. Any reason to crochet, right?

Seaside Sunglasses Pouch


Begin cluster: Chain 2, (Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through first 2 loops on hook) 3 times, yarn over, pull through all 4 loops on hook.

Cluster: (Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through first 2 loops on hook) 4 times, yarn over, pull through all 5 loops on hook.


  • 100% cotton yarn, worsted weight (I used Bernat Handicrafter in ‘On the Sea’)
  • 4.0mm (G) crochet hook
  • 5.5mm (I) crochet hook
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle


Using the larger hook, leave a long tail and chain 24. Join with a slip stitch to make a ring.

Round 1: Chain 1, sc in same, sc around, join. (24 sc)

Round 2: Ch 1, sc in same, dc in next, (sc, dc) around, join. (12 sc, 12 dc)

Round 3: Ch 1, dc in same, sc in next (dc, sc) around, join. (12 sc, 12 dc)

Round 4: Begin cluster, ch 1, skip 1, (cluster, ch 1, skip 1) around, join to the first cluster. (12 clusters, 12 ch-1)

Round 5-16: Repeat rounds 1-4.

At this point, your pouch should be approximately 6.5″ high. If you want your pouch longer, feel free to repeat rounds 1-4 until your pouch is about 1-1/4″ shorter than the desired length.

Rounds 17-19: Repeat rounds 1-3.

Round 20: Ch 1, sc in same, ch 1, skip 1, (sc, ch 1, skip 1) around, join to first sc. Fasten off. (12 sc, 12 ch-1)

Flip your pouch so it is wrong-side out and whip stitch the bottom together, going through the outer loops only. Weave in your ends.


Using the smaller hook, chain 60 and fasten off. Before weaving in the ends of your tie, thread it in and out through the chain spaces on the top of your pouch.

You can leave your drawstring as is and weave in your ends, or you could add tassels. I just wrapped my yarn around my hand about 30 times and tied the top with the end of my drawstring to attach it. Finish off your tassel and cut off the bottom of it so it’s about 2″ long on the bottom.

I also added wood beads, though it was tricky to add them to the chain – I used my darning needle to try and stuff the chain into the hole on the bead and that worked! I did my first tassel and drew the bead down to the top of the tassel and made a knot on TOP of the bead to secure it. Then, I strung my drawstring through the chain spaces, added my next bead, and finished the second tassel.


Farmhouse Wash Cloth Crochet Pattern

Whenever a person starts their journey with knitting and crochet, the first project people recommend is usually a dishcloth. Dishcloths? Wash cloth? BORING, right? Wrong!

Both dish and wash cloths are the perfect project for newbies and intermediate knitters and crocheters; they are the perfect projects for learning new stitches on a small scale, they take very little yarn, and they are super fast to work up! Plus, they make wonderful gifts or add ons to gifts for friends and family. Whip up a few of these wash cloths, tie them up with a pretty bow, toss in a handmade or locally-made soap and voila! Perfect gift.

These Farmhouse Wash Cloths are beautifully textured and easy to make. I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton which is a braided, mercerized cotton that lends itself to beautiful stitch definition and it comes in a variety of colours. Honestly, I’ve used many different cottons for any kind of cloth and I love how this yarn works up.

100% cotton yarn (Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton, worsted weight, 186 yards/170 meters per 100 gram/3.53 ounce skein)

6.0mm (J) hook
Darning Needle

Gauge is not important

While gauge is not important, you do want to make sure your wash cloths works up into a square. If you find that by the time you reach the end of the pattern repeats and you haven’t made a square, you might have to add on more repeats. If you add on more, keep in mind you’ll have to add more sc to the border.
