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
- 🧶 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
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: www.filatiromance.com!
♥ 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.
🌸 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!
|1||The 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.|
|2||Work in and return rows until you reach the height of the book, in my case 23 cm in height.|
|3||Work SC all around the cover and only in the corners make 2 SC (increase)|
|4||Work 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.|
You can fix different applique on this cover and you can find some advice in the CATEGORY – APPLIQUE, take a look!
