Here’s a quick scrap yarn project that to help keep your sunglasses scratch free when not worn.
You’ll need a 4.5mm/7/G 6-7 crochet hook
Aran/10 ply/Worsted thickness cotton or cotton blend yarn. I’ve used Drops Paris 100% Cotton.

1st Round: h11, dc in 2nd stitch from the hook, dc in next 9 sts and turn work 180 degrees to work on the other side of the beginning chain. Dc in each of the 10 stitches.
Work in spiral. After a few rounds it’s a good idea to weave in the beginning tail.
Dc in each stitch for 25-30 rounds, depending on what size you wish the case to be. The average adult case is around 5.5cm wide and 15cm tall and a children’s one is the same width but 1-1.5 cm shorter.
The size will largely depend on your tension, but a case for children’s sunglasses takes around 25-27 rounds and a case for adult sunglasses takes around 27-30 rounds. It’s easy to measure the needed height as you work.
If you wish to make the case wider, remember that adding 1 stitch in the beginning chain adds 2 stitches for a round/circumference.
If you’re using several colours, weave in ends as you work.
For a hanging loop: after finishing the last round (press the case flat and make sure you’ve finished at the side of the case) ch-18, dc in next stitch, st in next two stitches, cut yarn and weave in the end.
