Book Cover part 2

Hello Friends

As promised the photo of the said book cover.

The cover is knitted in an Aaron weight yarn, I cast on 80 stitches and continued in Knit 1, Purl 1 until it measured the size of book it was to cover. The other one was done in same yarn but Knit 2, Purl 2. If you make it too long just fold it down to make a cuff. You could also use it to cover a kindle or Ipad to stop the screens from scratching.
What do you think?



  1. They would make great gifts!

    1. I was thinking along those linrs too. Ihave some black yan hanging around with nothing to do which might do for a couple of male members of the family.

  2. Nice! I like all the bright colors.

    1. Hi Lena and welcome.
      The yarn used to be a jumper I knitted years ago (15 to 20ago) for myself and I didn't want it any more so I unpicked it intending to use it for something else but never did until now,

  3. I love this. What a great idea! Gorgeous yarn too :) Maggie xx

The weather has been glourious this month, almost wall to wall sunshine. Some say it will last all summer. We'll have to wait and see. ...
