How to crochet a book


I was looking for a crochet pattern for a book but strangly only found 1 (which I didn’t like that much) 📚. So I decided to make my own – and it turned out to be really easy. Here’s how:

Step 1:

Crochet a rectangle. I made mine 30 single crochets long (using a 2.5 hook) and 21 rows wide. Feel free to use whatever measures you like, just make sure that if you fold the rectangle in half, it resembles a book 😂.

Step 2:

I embroidered the front of the book with a Hogwarts letter⚡️😍. You can also surface-crochet the title on top of it. Or embroider other motives. If you’re going with a Harry Potter theme, try an owl, wands, the outlines of Hogwarts, the goblet of fire or a lightning bolt.

Step 3:

The pages are a simple rectangular piece: Crochet a rectangle (half the size of your book cover) in white yarn. Then using single crochet stitches, crochet around 3 sides of the rectangle. That way your pages look nice on the outside.

Step 4:

Place the pages in your book cover and fold it shut.

Step 5:

Bind the book. Use the yarn from your book cover and sew it together on 3 sides.
