Did you see yesterday’s post for an Easy Eye Glass Case? Today I’m sharing a different version of the same project.
#6 knitting needles
approximately 25 yarns of worsted weight yarn
a pair of double point needles – optional
Using the long tail cast on method, cast on 16 stitches.
Row 1: knit all stitches
Row 2: Purl all stitsches
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until the rectangle measures 13 inches in length. Bind off, leaving a long tail.
Fold the rectangle in half and using the tail of your bind off and cast on, sew the side together and weave in all of the ends.
Sew a small button on the back of the eye case.
Using a pair of double point needles create a three stitch i-cord piece that measures approximately 2 inches. Sew the i-cord to the center of the front to create a loop. If you prefer you can create an easy, single strand loop like in the first project.
New knitters can use this project to complete Needle Arts Merit Badge requirement #3, #9, or #17.
NOTE: The requirements have been simplified here. Please be sure to read the full text in the Girl Handbook to make sure you fully understand the requirements.
