The used crochet point stitches is the single crochet (US terms) worked in row.

As a reference to the dimensions of the cover I took a book of 24 cm in height and 32 cm in width.

🧶Used yarn and accessories

filato usato in microfibra per la copertina / used yarn microfiber to make book cover
  • 🧶 100 gr Miss tricot yarn Abbraccio (Merino Touch) 100% Microfiber Bulky (5) white color (code 1)
  • crochet hook: 6,5 – 7 mm (US K – 10,5 / UK 4 -2)
  • tapestry needle
  • scissor

I choose this yarn for several reasons:

♥ for its softness; if the kids fall asleep while reading they can even use it as a soft cushion 😂

♥ for its range of pastel colors ;there are 20 color to choose, visit Lisa’s shop:!

♥ for its thickness; I search about a quick yarn to work and, of the Miss Tricot line, it is the thickest yarn;

♥ if it should be filled with dust, it can be washed either by hand or in the washing machine with a gentle wool wash, but without spinning.

english crochet instructions to make a book cover

🌸 Crochet book cover instruction

Before starting, take a book as you like and want to cover it and follow the instructions below based on the book you have chosen!

1The processing is really simple to carry out, you have to work rows of SC that reaches the width of the book, in my case 32 cm length.
2Work in and return rows until you reach the height of the book, in my case 23 cm in height.
3Work SC all around the cover and only in the corners make 2 SC (increase)
4Work two rectangular strips to be fixed on the sides of the cover to recreate a pocket where the book can be inserted, so as to block it. Change the crochet hook 4 mm to make the strips.
