Are you ready to crochet your own story? Then why not learn Jacquard Crochet and make this very hipster crochet book cover. At Katia we adore Book Day! We are always inspired by new, amusing and easy ideas to celebrate the union between books and the handmade. On this occasion we are sharing a crochet pattern so that you can make the Crochet your Story book cover. You only need a few balls of Katia Fair Cotton and a size D3 (3 mm) crochet hook. Download the pattern and follow the simple instructions (we recommend that you print the graphs).
Learn Jacquard Crochet, even if you still don’t know this technique, and surprise everybody with this really cool design. You can also personalise the message of your cover for your favourite book, your pattern note book, your crochet diary… Are you as excited about this project as we are? If you’re encouraged to make the Crochet your Story book cover, share the results on the social networks. Thanks to the hashtags #MadeWithKatia and #CrochetYourStory we’ll get to know your creations and your crochet story!
Learn Jacquard Crochet
This consists of combining various colours in the same row to make the pattern or design. Each colour worked that is indicated on the graph is done in single crochet. When working one single crochet with one colour, the rest of the yarns are hidden behind this same stitch. And so on. Advice whilst working flat Jacquard Crochet: hide the lengths of yarn well so that the colour changes and the lengths of yarns being carried across the back of the work cannot be seen on the right side of the work.
This book cover can be adapted to any size. It’s only necessary to increase or decrease the number of stitches and rows, making sure that the letters and the design on the front and back covers are centralised. It is also possible to modify the book spine by increasing or decreasing the number of central stitches between both sides of the cover.
You’ll find everything required to make these projects in Katia Shops. Also, on our online sales platform KatiaShop: for now, available for Spain (Peninsula & Balearic Islands), France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Austria (a selection of articles).
