Gather Your Supplies

For this quick and easy knitting sunglasses pouch we’ll use Lion Brand Feels Like Butta yarn. As the name implies, it’s velvety soft – perfect for keeping your sunglasses scratch-free!

To make one sunglasses pouch, you’ll need approximately 45 yards of yarn.

If you choose to substitute yarn, I recommend you stay in the worsted weight category.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 7 yds Lion Brand Feels Like Butta, Royal Blue
  • 19 yds Lion Brand Feels Like Butta, Red
  • 19 yds Lion Brand Feels Like Butta, White
  • 5 mm (US 8) Knitting Needle
  • Darning Needle
  • Scissors

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked in a flat panel and sewn together to assemble. You’ll begin your knitting sunglasses with the striped panel. You may choose to carry the yarn as you knit the stripes or simply cut the yarn and weave them in.

With the striped panel complete, you will pick up and knit the royal blue section and then proceed to assemble.

This pouch is very stretchy and fits all of the sunglasses I own but keep in mind it may not be big enough for very large sunglasses.

Color Key:

  • Color A – Red
  • Color B – White
  • Color C – Royal Blue
