Cabled Glasses Case

So this is actually my third attempt at a glasses case; my first one had a flap on top to keep the glasses in but it didn’t work very well, maybe it’s my style of knitting.
My second I tried to make a drawstring bag so they’d still stay in, well they stay in alright, it’s a pain to get the out.

This one is pretty basic, I’m not happy the other two didn’t work out but maybe I can work on it later.

Also sorry it took me forever to get done, my husband and I had our second anniversary recently as well as I have more than knitting projects going on. I’ve got TONS more projects so when I get tired of one I work on a different one. Which is one of the many reasons it’s taking so long. Plus I think I needed a small break from knitting, my fingers were getting pretty sore. Mainly this case is why, tiny needles + tight knitting = sore fingers.

  1. Love the pattern. I recommend using the magic loop method. It is much easier on the hands, and a lot easier than double pointed needles, for anything knitted in the round.

    • Anybody is welcome to use the magic loop, the only reason I don’t is that I’m still working on getting my magic loop to look right which is why it’s done with DPNs. But whatever is easiest for people making it by all means do what is more comfortable and thanks for letting others know that it’s easiest because I never even thought to try magic loop on this one, but like I said I’m still “new” to that method.
