Cozy Camera

All finished! My camera is now all dressed up in a cute and cozy strap "sweater". It's so much more comfortable to have the camera around my neck now. It's almost like wearing a cozy scarf with a camera attached to it.

This is so easy to make, so I'm offering up this pattern for free:

I used two balls of Red Heart "Heart and Sole" in Razzle Dazzle with two strands held together.

Using size 3 needles, cast on 26 stitches and join in the round. I used magic loop, but you can use DPN's if you like that better.

K1, P1 for about eight rounds, or until you have 1 inch of ribbing.

Switch to size 6 needles and knit straight for 25 inches more (total 26 inches).

Switch to size 3 needles and K1, P1 the same number of rounds you did in the beginning.

Bind off!

Finished Length: 27 inches
Finished Width (diameter): 4 1/3 inches around

You can substitute any yarn you like. My gauge for this project was 6 st/inch. Note: this was for a Canon Rebel - I don't know if all camera brands have the same dimensions. Double check your measurements to be sure.


  1. OMG sooooo cute! I wish I could make one. :) Knitting is on my list this year.... I think that may have to be one of my first projects!

  2. is it attached to something on the ends or does it stay in place on its own?
