The granny square is simple to crochet and very versatile.  You can make booties, blankets, bags, scarves and clothing from these squares.  In this instructable I will show you how to make a sunglass/eyeglass case from these wonderful squares.

Step 2: Making the granny square

If you already know how to make granny squares you can jump ahead to step 6.

Here are a list of abbreviations that I will be using a:
            ch(s)       chain stitch(s)
            dc            double crochet
            sl st        slip stitch
            sp           space
            yo            yarn over

To begin make a slip knot (form a loop and pull another loop through it with your hook -see image 1 and 2 below).

Yarn over (wrap yarn over your hook from back to front -see image 3)

Pull the yarn through the loop to make a new loop (image 4), do not tighten.  This is your first chain stitch (ch).

Step 3: Forming the ring

Now that you've made your first chain stitch we need to make three more, giving us a total of 4 chain stitches (ch4) (see image 1)

The next step is to make a slip stitch (sl st).  To do this, insert your hook into the first chain stitch (beside the slip knot -see image 2).  Yarn over (yo) (image 3) and draw the hook through both loops (image 4).  This creates a ring.
