Crochet camera strap cover

I know, I repeat myself over and over, but… I made this cover with no pattern. I would like to be more patient with writing it down as I go but I am not… .

Just for those who might be interested in making it I’m going to try to explain how I made it. Just give me some time to go through the cover one more time and I’ll be back with pattern. I can promise you right now, that’s soooo easy to make and soooooo hard to put on! lol. Seriously!

Right now I’m soo exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open. New very loud, just moved in, neighbors… That’s what it is. Grrr… . I hope it’s because they’re settling in… I really hope so!

I posted it because I just couldn’t wait to share it. I am so excited I made it πŸ™‚ When I started making it,Β out of boredom I didn’t know I’m gonna love it so much. This cover is awesome. My camera feels so comfortable around my neck like it’s never before. Before I tried it on today I almost never worn the camera on my neck. Those days are over πŸ™‚

Pattern for camera (nikon D5000) strap cover:

hook G 6 – 4.25 mm

chain 8,

row 1: sc in second ch from hook and sc in every ch till the end, join with sl st to form a ring,

row 2: ch 1, 1sc in first sc, 1sc in every sc around, do not join

row 3: 1 sc in every sc around

repeat until you reach the length of the narrow part of the camera belt.

From there:

row 1: 1sc in first sc, 1sc in second sc, 1 sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1, 1,

row 2: 1 sc in first sc, 2sc in second, 1sc , 1 sc, 1 sc, 2 sc, 1sc, 1sc,

row 3: 1sc in first sc, 2 sc, 1 sc, 1sc, 2sc, 1sc, 1sc, 2 sc.

row 4: 1sc in first sc, 2 sc, 1 sc, 2sc, 1sc, 2sc, 1sc, 2 sc.

it should look something like that πŸ™‚

next (blue part on the drawing below):

1 sc in every sc around for about 4 rows

red part:

*hdc in first sc, 1 ch, skip next sc, hdc in next sc, 1 ch* repeat for one row

next row – *hdc, 1 ch* repeat around every hdc until you get to almost the end of the wider part of your camera strap

blue part:

1 sc in every sc around for about 4 rows

black part:

row 1: 1sc in first sc, 2 sc, 1 sc, 1sc, 2sc, 1sc, 1sc, 2 sc.

row 2: 1 sc in first sc, 2sc in second, 1sc , 1 sc, 1 sc, 2 sc, 1sc, 1sc,

row 3: 1sc in first sc, 1sc in second sc, 1 sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1, 1,

row 4: 1sc in first sc, 1sc in second sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1, 1,

repeat row 4 till the end (depends on how long you camera strap is)

I made that part while the cover was already on my strap and my tip is: if you making that cover do it around your camera strap. that way you can see where to increase or decrease stitches as you go, and you won’t have to struggle (as I did), to put it on after its’ made.
