And Photo Tutorial
I had just jotted down this pattern after I had completed Nick’s Green Camera Case. I knew I needed to edit it and go through it more thoroughly. What better way to do that then crochet the item again and tweak it here and there when needed. So that is what I did. I got the pattern written and did photos as I crocheted the new item.
First the written pattern.
