Are you feeling the summer heat yet? I certainly am. And this wavy crochet sunglass case comes in handy to keep my shades neatly and safely.

I currently live in the Middle East and once it is March we begin to anticipate the heat. By June and July it is at its peak and sunglasses become our best pals.
It so happens that I lost my sunglass case, so what better time to crochet a sunglass case than in this desert heat? Plus, it was a quick summer crochet project to make.
I have been working with this wavy crochet stitch on a couple of yarny projects (which will be revealed in time). I am not sure of its original name, but I have seen it called Gem stitch in a crochet book I own. Talking of books, the one featured in the photo has been wonderful to read. The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down is all about mindful and conscious living and I am loving every moment of reading it.
The first design I made with this stitch is the River Gem Beanie and Scarf set. I liked the result but did not have the patience to create more designs with it.
This time around, I aim to explore the stitch design by creating the at least five projects with it, and this crochet sunglass case is one of many.
This sunglass crochet case is made in rounds, except for the last few upper rows. You will need to know how to do the Foundation Single Crochet technique, if you do not, it is alright. This video tutorial explains just how to do it. on Round 1, we will use the FSC technique as used in the Super Quick and Chunky Headband pattern I made on Crafther blog; as seen below, you begin working the opposite side from the last stitch.
I’ve been working with a lot of cotton yarn recently. Check out these other cotton yarn projects
