Here's my version of Grandma's handkerchief case which is basically 2 experimental granny rounds joined together with a dc and reverse dc border.
Leave a gap at the top for the opening.
And here's another little pressie for Grandma-in-law. At the wedding she proudly showed me her crochet edged handkerchief and I couldn't get over how fine her work was. (Is that a proper sentence?) I just had to have a go myself, so with the crochet cotton and a 1mm hook this time, I tackled a square of cotton cut out of a napkin (serviette). Following a Youtube video I rolled the edge of the cotton and dc'd all the way round. My next round was also UK dc with 3 dc in the corners and on the 3rd round I did a half treble chain 1 with 3 half trebles in the corners.
Another round of dc's followed with a final round of reverse dc's. My first round is a bit skew whiff and the border pulls slightly but I'm hoping that a wash, a stretch and an iron will even it out. If it doesn't it's 'in the bin'!
