Taught by Wendy Bernard
Tossing your eyeglasses into your bag without protection is never a good idea. Wendy Bernard's eyeglass case is a great project for beginner knitters ready to try a new stitch pattern, and for anyone who needs a quick gift idea. Wendy's pattern even includes three different size options, so you can create a case for slim reading glasses, standard eyeglasses, or oversized sunglasses. Using lovely hand painted yarn, Wendy shows how to knit Linen Stitch in the round for the body of the case then work the flap of the case flat. Finally, learn how to make a buttonhole and add a button.
