Tie Back Glasses NB Prop - Free Crochet Pattern

Okay so these might seem a little silly to some but they were super fun to design. One of my photographers recently asked if I could make some Clark Kent glasses to go with a Superbaby Cape Set I made for her. I thought crochet glasses might prove a challenge but I was happy to try and I love the end results! I rarely work with tiny hooks but I needed them to be stiff and not overly huge. So with that said lets get to the pattern :) 

Newborn Glasses Prop

*D - hook 
*Small amounts of worsted weight black yarn

 Make 2 - (one for right and one for left side)

Fasten off. Pull tight so the end will knot up. 

Center Nose Piece

Ch 5, dc in 3rd ch from the hook, sc in next ch, dc in last ch, 
Fasten off, but leave a long tail for sewing. 

*Sew Nose Piece to center insides, on the top of the glasses. 

While the pattern is only written as a newborn prop you could easily make them larger by increasing your hook size! 

I really hope you love the pattern! I'm working up a rounder frame too and will try to add that pattern soon!
