It’s almost time for beach days, picnics, and fun in the sun! So you’ll want to keep your sunnies handy. 😎
I have a colorful quick and easy Crochet Summer Sunnies Pouch so you can keep your sunglasses close by. It’s perfect to throw in your purse or beach bag and the button closure will keep your sunnies from sliding out.

If you are looking for some new small scissors to add to your crochet tools, I love this Vintage Gold Embroidery Scissors Set. It is a set of 2 scissors, stork scissors and tiny shears, with leather covers. They are the perfect size to snip your yarn as you are working. I received them as a Christmas gift from my mom and I just love them!
You can find the pattern for the Sunnies Pouch below. I’ve also included a free PDF in case you’d like to easily print the pattern.
Crochet Summer Sunnies Pouch
Worsted weight cotton yarn (4) – I used I Love This Cotton in Eastern Nova
Stitches used US terms:
Chain – ch
Foundation Double Crochet – fdc
Double Crochet – dc
Front Post Double Crochet – fpdc
Back Post Double Crochet -bpdc
Single Crochet – sc
Slip Stitch – ss
Note: chain 2 at beginning of row counts as a stitch.
Row 1: work 11 fdc. Turn. (11 stitches)
Row 2: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st stitch. dc in next stitch and in each stitch across. Turn. (11 stitches)
Row 3: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st stitch, dc in next stitch. *fpdc in next stitch, dc in next 2 stitches* Repeat from *to* 1 time. fpdc in next stitch. dc in last 2 stitches. Turn. (11 stitches)
Row 4: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st stitch, dc in next stitch. *bpdc in next stitch, dc in next 2 stitches* Repeat from *to* 1 time. bpdc in next stitch. dc in last 2 stitches. Turn. (11 stitches)
Repeat Rows 3 and 4 until your piece measures about 15 inches, ending with Row 4. Turn. (11 stitches)
At this point, I have 32 rows total. Your total rows may be different depending on tension and yarn used.
Last Row: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st stitch, dc in next stitch and in each stitch across. (11 stitches)
Do not turn.
ch 1 (does not count as a stitch). sc evenly around piece, working 3 sc in each corner. Join with ss to 1st sc.
Fold the bottom up, with right sides together, to about 2 to 3 inches from the top. This will make your flap to close the pouch.
Sew the sides of your pouch together. I used the invisible seam method. This is a great tutorial from BHooked crochet.
Weave in ends.
Turn your pouch right side out, sew on the button, and slip in your sunnies.
