CCTV, knit style




Sick of public surveillance? Try out the new knitcam.
Completely obsolete and will not capture any images.

Knit yourself one to go in the corner of your room, or by your front door.

This pattern is for a knitted Security Camera, and includes detailed instructions and templates for making a rigid cardboard frame so the camera can be mounted on a wall.


Tools Needed: 4 dpns size 3.75mm/#5, stiff cardboard and glue or tape, 4 stitch markers, ruler
Material needed: Around 50g each grey, white and black DK weight yarn
Pattern Difficulty: Intermediate.
Includes long-tail and cable cast on, i-cord, knitting in the round and flat, intarsia while making knit and purl stitches. The pattern also has instructions for making a cardboard frame to sit the camera on so that it can be mounted on a wall. This involves cutting out a cardboard template and gluing or taping it together and fitting the knitting over it.
Pattern Style: Written instructions in knitting abbreviations, all abbreviations given
