How to crochet a book sleeve
The construction will differ based on the pattern you decide to use. But the construction will almost be the same. Again, it might differ if the pattern decides to use a different crochet stitch.
You will begin by making a chain the width of your book, you will then work up the length of the book, maybe in circles or the front and back sides will be worked separately.
You will then end by connecting the pieces together, or closing the crochet sleeve and adding the button, if yours calls for one. If you crochet the cover too then add that on and weave in the ends and your crochet book sleeve pattern is all done!
Crochet stitches to make a book sleeve
The most common stitch used to crochet a book sleeve is the single crochet. In some patterns you might come across the half double crochet while others are accommodating the shell stitch. You can use any stitch you want, but if i was to pick one, the single crochet it is!
Crochet book sleeve materials
This pattern can easily be a scrap yarn project, but if you need to catch up on your crochet supplies, then Most patterns suggest using cotton yarn in either a DK or worsted weight. Cotton yarn is easy for beginners to use, and gives your projects great stitch definition, too!
Don’t have cotton? Not a problem. You can use worsted-weight acrylic too.

- Have access to all the materials– Be sure to have access to all the materials that the crochet pattern is asking for.
