Free Knitting Pattern - Easy Book Cover

We would like to share a free knitting pattern. This is an extremely easy pattern for book cover. Usually our patterns are more detailed and include details like the number of rows you should knit and number of stitches per row. But this book cover can be achieved without paying attention to number stitches and rows. So we would like you to be carefree with this pattern. Just start knitting and stop when you think you have made the knit of the size of the book you are making this for.


The stitch used to knit the cover is the Stockinette Stitch. Checkout our recommended videos to learn how to make a stockinette stitch. We recommend making this knit with Cool Soft Cotton using 4.5 or 5 mm wooden needles.
