Seed Stitch Camera Case

I love the texture of the seed stitch!

This case is designed to fit a digital camera, you can very easily add onto the chain to make it larger if needed. It uses "seed stitch" so it has a great texture!

My camera is about 4 inches wide x 2 1/2 inches tall x about 3/4 of an inch thick. I know not all cameras are the same exact size so I left as little extra room for different sizes to still fit comfortably.

Seed Stitch Camera Case

Ravelry page for this case - add it to your library! 

G/4.25mm hook
not sure exactly how much yarn it used but it was not much at all, maybe 75 yards or so

st = stitch
sts= stitches
ch = chain
sl st= slip st
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet

The case is comes out to be 5 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches tall.

You can add or decrease length by chaining any odd number

With color A
chain 19   (hold it up to your camera and make sure this length will work)
sc in 2nd ch from the hook, * dc in next st, sc in next st * dc in the last st
ch 1, sc in the first st, * dc in the next st, sc in the next st * dc in the last st
Repeat last row until piece measures 8 inches long
ch 1, sc in the first st... repeat the alternating dc and sc for the next 7 stitches (4 sc, 4 dc) , ch 2 and skip 2 sts, sc in the next st, dc in next st- repeat until the end of row  (IF you altered the number of chains than the stitch count will not add up, the button hole must be centered so for every 2 that you added onto the chain amount add 1 st onto each side of the ch 2)
ch 1, sc in the first st, * dc in the next st, sc in the next st * dc in the last st
Repeat the last row 3 more times
Fasten off with color A

Switch to color B
Attach the yarn into the very first st of project, where the starting tail is
sl st around in each st, when you work down the sides (the side where you turned) you do not work into the individual stitches, you work into the space ....seen in picture below

After you finish the sl st border you are ready to sew up the sides
It will look like this....

Flip it over so the wrong side is facing up and fold the bottom up
Sew up sides with color A
when seaming up the sides there are 2 loops and you want to go into the "inner" loop on each st

Attach the button, double check to make sure that it will line up properly
Weave in the ends and you're done! :)
