5.5 mm “I” crochet hook
Worsted weight acrylic yarn of your choice (I used Red Heart Super Saver in “Spring Green” and “Shocking Pink”
Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:
Instructions for triangle (make 2):
Ch 6, join in ch furthest from hook with a sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 8, then into the center of the ring, work (5 dc, ch 5) two times. Then work 4 dc into the center of the ring. To close the round, work a sl st into the third ch of the ch-8 from the beginning of the round.
Round 2: Slip stitch over to the first corner space. Ch 8, then work 2 dc in the corner space. Work a dc in each stitch along the side of the triangle (dc stitches worked along the sides of the triangle). When you reach the next corner space, work 2 dc, ch 5, 2 dc. Work a dc in each stitch along the next triangle side (dc stitches worked along the sides of the triangle). Work the next corner the same way as before, 2 dc, ch 5, 2 dc, then work the final side by working a dc in each stitch across. To complete round, work a dc in the corner space where round was started, then, work a sl st into the third ch of the ch 8 from the beginning of the round.
*Note: After you make the second triangle, do not fasten off and continue below for seaming instructions.
Finishing & Assembly:
Sandwich the two triangles together. Beginning at the first corner space, work 4 sc in the corner, then a single crochet in each side stitch (be sure to incorporate both layers!), work 4 sc in the next corner space, then a sc in each side stitch. Finish up by working 4 sc in the last corner space, then work a slip stitch in the same space to finish off the seam. Fasten off and weave in any ends. Just be sure when you seam the top is open to be able to put the spinner inside.
With a matching piece of yarn, sew a button to the middle center of the case. To make the button loop, tie yarn into the top back center stitch of the case. Chain the needed length for your particular button (I did 18 chains). Fasten off and sew the end into the chain base.
