Cozy Gnome Camera Case


Tamara Kelly


Years ago, when I was still learning to crochet, I made a sweet little gnome for my point and shoot camera. But over the years, the original cozy has just plain worn out – it was time to make a new gnome home for our little Cybershot. And since this size of camera is so popular, (Coolpix, Powershot, etc), I thought I really ought to share the pattern. And make it even better, of course!

Materials List

  • US – G hook, 4.0 mm hook
  • Small amounts of worsted weight cotton yarn, in blue, white, tan/cream/brown, and red, or colors of your choice
  • Buttons: 2 small black buttons (or sew on eyes), 1 red 1/2 inch button
  • Thread: black and red, small amounts
  • Needles: thin sewing needle and tapestry/yarn needle

Finished Size

Made to fit a pocket sized point and click camera: the Cybershot, Coolpix, Powershot, etc.


Since there can be slight differences in the dimensions, be sure to try the gnome on your camera a couple of times as you go, to make sure you get the best fit. It’s easy to add or subtract a couple of the blue rows to make the case longer or shorter, as needed. The blue rows should stop when just a bit over 50% of the camera is covered.
