Last Minute Camera Case – Quick Free Pattern

Less than 12 hours before I left for vacation, I realized that I didn’t have a case for my new camera. Luckily, I can knit. I previously knitted a case for my husband’s smart phone and spent a long time worrying about how to close the top. It turns out that if you have a tight gauge and use a yarn with high wool content, then simple ribbing will keep your electronics safely stowed.

It took me an hour to make this quick and easy camera case, so I thought I’d share the pattern with you. This case fits a Canon PowerShot camera, but you could measure, swatch and adjust the numbers accordingly, just make sure you start with an even number of stitches.


Approx 20 yds Bulky weight yarn

US size 8 (5 mm) DPNs

Tapestry Needle


4 sts and 6 rows = 1″


3″ x 4.25″

To Knit Case

CO 24 sts, join to work in the round, being careful not to twist
