FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Book Sleeve

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Book Sleeve

We are launching our One-Skein Weekend with this fantastic Book Sleeve! I love this so much, and any reader in your life (including yourself) will just love to have one of these for carrying their current book on the go! These pouches can be made to accommodate any size and you can change the pattern to make yours according to whatever size you want. Even if you don’t carry a book around, this would be a very nice sleeve for your iPad or tablet! This is a great idea for us crocheters on the go to take our digital patterns with us wherever we go! This stitch is the Waistcoat Stitch and although it is a crochet stitch it gives the appearance of a tight Knit Stitch. This is perfect for so many items that you can adapt from this one fun pattern! Enjoy the versatility of this great project, and I can’t wait to see all your creations!





My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
