Knit up this retro camera purse for Instagram fans or photographers.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the purse and photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 2 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, and work a k2tog decrease. The purse is finished with a zipper closure, so you will need to know how to sew in a zip (this is done by hand sewing, not on a sewing machine). The stripe decoration is added using Swiss darning (or duplicate stitch) embroidery.


  • A pair of straight 4mm knitting needles (US 6)
  • Double knitting yarns (DK or light worsted weight) in brown, light brown and black, plus coloured yarn to decorate.
  • A zipper (minimum length 14cm)
