Camera Strap Cover: Free Crochet Pattern

Tired of your same old uncomfortable camera strap? If you have a DSLR, you know as well as I do, those things can get heavy. Why not make a durable, soft, cotton cover for it? It feels great around your neck and is perfect for any photo enthusiast!  

Camera Strap Cover Pattern

Worsted weight Yarn (I used one ball of Lily Sugar n Cream 100% Cotton)
Size F Hook
Yarn Needle

Make a chain long enough to wrap snugly around the widest part of your camera strap. Slip stitch into the last chain on your hook, joining the two ends to make a ring.

Row 1: Chain 1, SC into each chain around. Slip stitch into your beginning chain to complete the round.
Repeat Row 1 two more times.
Row 4: Ch 3, make 2 DC in same space as ch. *Skip next two stitches, 3 DC in next st.* Repeat what's in ** to end of round.
Row 5: Make 3 slip stitches into the next space between your 3 DC's. Ch 3, then make 2 DC in same space. *DC 3 times in each sp.* Repeat ** to end of row.
Row 6-40 (or however long you want): Repeat previous row.
Row 41-43: Ch 1, SC in each stitch around. 
Row 44: Slip Stitch around. Finish off and weave in ends. 

Ta-Da! There you have it. You've just made your very own custom camera strap cover!

This thing is SO comfy, I never want to let go of my camera now! Whats even better is you can customize it any way you like. Add a crochet flower, a bunch of different colors, whatever you want! Have fun with it!
