If you’re looking for a quick and easy Fourth of July knitting project, you’re in the right place. Our Fourth of July knitting sunglasses pouch works up in less than two hours and with very little yarn. It features the garter stitch for great stretch and texture. It also makes it doable for beginner knitters.
With this project you’ll get to practice knitting stripes as well as how to pick up and knit on garter stitch. The recommended yarn, Feels Like Butta from Lion Brand, is incredibly soft and great for keeping your sunglasses scratch-free but you can substitute with any medium weight yarn in your stash.
