Paperback Book Covers Crochet

Paperback Book Covers Crochet

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knowledge of basic crochet stitches and skills are necessary to complete this project

Pattern Description:

With this easy crochet pattern you have two choices - make your book cover with vinyl flaps, or use the included crocheted flaps pattern. It's 2 patterns for the price of one! Also included is a full size template and instructions to make your vinyl flaps. Why bother with vinyl flaps? Because they are less bulky, and I also like to stick notes inside that are easily readable - but it is your choice :)

Both book covers are crocheted in one piece. The only sewing required is attaching the bookmark and button.

These book covers are a fun, yet functional accessory. You'll never lose your place with the attached bookmark, plus it keeps prying eyes from seeing what you're reading ;) Makes a unique gift for yourself or any book lover!
