Crochet Glasses Case Pattern | Free Crochet Patterns

While I was sunning it up in Mexico earlier this year, I was inspired to create an easy crochet glasses case pattern that can be used, wherever you are. Not just poolside.

I’ve been wanting to use this highly stitch for some time as I’m a huge fan of post stitches, and the Raised Ripple Stitch (also known as the Alpine Stitch) is now one of my faves too.

This pattern is worked holding 2 strands of yarn together at the same time which means you can create your own colour combination for a truly personalised crochet project.

I chose to use Stylecraft Naturals Bamboo Cotton in green and blue shades to replicate the ripples seen on the pools surface.

This pattern can worked in 2 strands of the same colour if you don’t want your finished colour to be random as random.
