Square Corner Camera Case/Dust Cover Pattern

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.

A Camera Case for Nick

I like to make things for my kids, Kay, Justin and Martin are easy they like hats so I can always find a new style that they may like or sometimes they request one. Nick is not much of a hat wearer so whenever I find a project I can do for him I do it. I decided to make a camera case. He did not get a case and his camera was getting all dusty just sitting on his desk. So I whipped one up for him. He also has a Canon Powershot camera similar to mine.

I used a different technique for his though. I used rows and in the round crochet to produce his case. It was done in green of course because that is his favorite color. I will be posting a photo tutorial of the pattern in the future. So stay tuned for that. For now here are some photos of his camera case.

Red Hot, Hot Red Skull Cap Here!

I finished this little skull cap up the other day. It was a front post double crochet pattern that I wanted to do. I need more practice with this stitch and this was a cute little cap. It worked up well except when I missed a double crochet way back in round 3, I did not notice it until I had finished round 8, and had to pull it out back to that mistake. Then later on during the rework I missed a front post so had to pull it out again. I really should not try to do this stitch when I am tired or have other things going on around me. Lol 😛

The photo shoot was easy enough just one item to get in the picture.

It is available on Ebay here.

Two Strand Rainbow Hat

I thought I could use another hat. I have been wanting to use this pattern so I finally did. I thought it would be great to put a little brightness into these dreary winter days.
