Felted Glasses Case

Lion Brand« Lion« Wool

GAUGE:

16 st x 24 rows = 4 in [10 cm.] When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

The piece will shrink while being felted. Check the size after washing and before putting in the dryer -- if it is the size you want, stop at that point and air-dry.

Felted Glasses Case Reviewed by Rebecca Westcott on 2008-11-22 *****
Wonderful "little" find. I also made it to match a felted purse and now everyone I know wants one. Easy to make and as many variations as Lion Brand Wool colors. I also have altered the size for "reading" glasses and even smaller for a pen or pencil holder for purse or brief case.
