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! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knowledge of basic crochet stitches and skills are necessary to complete this project GAUGE 7 hdc = 2 inches SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Covers to fit a standard size (mass market) paperback book (7" high x 4 1/4" wide) of various widths.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 2.5 to 3.0 oz. of worsted weight (#4 medium) yarn
  • 1/4 yard of clear vinyl, if you choose to make the vinyl flap cover
  • 1 1/2 inch (38 mm) button
