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.
