Crochet Pattern: Scalloped Camera Pouch

By Candace – 6 Comments
Here’s something to keep your camera (or anything you need quick access to) handy and try your hand at some basic lace work. The body of this camera pouch is simple with a delicate lacy scallop edge. It works up quick and requires no sewing or finishing, so it’s great for on-the-go crocheting.

Skill Level:

Finished Size:
4″ (10 cm) tall, 3 1/4″ (8.5 cm) wide

Bulky Weight Yarn (50 yards)
Crochet Hook K (6.5 mm)

6 dc and 5 rows = 3″ (7.5 cm ) by 2″ (5 cm)

    Is there a photo of this project? It sounds cute, but I need a visual in addition to the pattern directions. Thanks!

    Very nice tutorial!

    Looks like I am stuck on row 7….Not sure I get the directions. As I understand it: 2 single crochet in the first stitch, 2 single crochet in the second stitch. Then single crochet 2 stitches together. Unsure how to do this. Can you help?

  4. Collette Griffith says:

    To single crochet two stitches together, you insert hook into the first sc stitch, yarn over, insert hook into next stitch, yarn over, then pull yarn through all the loops on the hook. Hope this helps!

    Shari, the photo is on the page. You may need to adjust your browser settings or reload.

    Sheryl, Collette’s already provided the instructions for the sc2tog, so I won’t repeat that. The entire row is a series of 2 increases followed by a decrease.

  6. tina says:

    in rows 2-6, does the ch 3 at the beginning count as one of the 16 sc? I always end up with too many stitches.

    What number would I have to increase the beginning chain to in order to make the bag a little bigger?
