Embrace your inner bookworm with this free pattern! This pattern is quick to make and you can use the yarn you already have, so let’s get started right away 🙂
Crochet hook 2,5 mm
Leftover yarn in color of your choosing
To make the cover, we are going to crochet in rows. Use the color you chose.
From now on, chain 1 on each end of a row to turn.
Row 1-11: sc in each (15)
Row 12: sc in each, but only in the back loops. This makes a nice line and folding point for the back of the book. (15)
Row 13: sc in each (15)
Row 14: sc in each, but only in the back loops. This makes a nice line and folding point for the back of the book. (15)
Row 15-24: sc in each (15)
Sc all the way around. [sc, chain 2, sc] in each corner. Finish off.
Again we will crochet in rows. Use white yarn.
Chain 35 and 1 to turn.
Row 1: sc in each. (35)
Finish off and leave a long tail for sewing.
Start by pinning where you need to make the edges. I used a paperclip to keep de corners of the pages in the right place when sewing, so I wouldn’t end up with too much or too little white at the end.
Sew the white on the cover, make sure to leave a bit of the cover sticking out. I prefer to first do one long side, so the placing is fixed and you can’t accidentally move the white. When you are almost done with sewing it together, stuff the book with fiberfill. Close the book and sew in the ends.
Take the keychain and some yarn in the color of the cover and sew the keychain to the back of the book.
Have fun making this cute keychain! I love to see your work, so be sure to use #nerdwithyarn when you share it on social media.
