Here’s my first “published” free pattern! Whoo hoo! It’s a simple one, but everyone’s got to start somewhere, right?
Camera Cozy Knitting Pattern
- size 10 knitting needles
- Yarn: Yarn Bee: Icelandic Jewels in color Rose Quartz (or other bulky weight yarn)
Gauge: 2 in. = 6 st x 10 R
Finished Measurements: 3 1/2 inches wide x 5 1/2 inches long (thought it is quite stretchy)
Cast on 11 stitches leaving a 6 1/2 inch tail.
Work in stockinette stitch until piece measures 10 1/2 inches, or desired length.
Bind off all stitches leaving a 6 1/2 inch tail.
Seam up sides (not using cast on/cast off tails).
Trim tails to exactly 6 1/2 inches if necessary.
Tie ends of cast on and cast off tails together for a cute little handle.
[You could also try an icord handle(cast on 3 stitches and work in icord until desired length, bind off and seam onto bag.) for a thicker handle, or you could also knit up a handle (cast on 2 or 3 stitches and work in garter or stockinette stitch until desired length. Bind off and seam to bag). Be creative!]
Embellish with buttons or other fun things! (I used a scrapbooking brad). Again, be creative!!
~coming soon, another free pattern for a cute “book purse”!!
