Crochet projects for bookworms

After all, is there anything better than curling up with a good book? These crochet projects for bookworms are sure to delight the literati in your life. 

I’m a bookish woman, and most of the women I know are just as enthusiastic about new novels as I am. From nonfiction to the most unbelievable fantasy, I love books. I spent as much time as I could in libraries growing up, and I have a deep and enduring weakness for bookstores.

For the techno-readers out there, this free ereader and tablet cover is a great choice. The simple and classic design of the case would fit into anyone’s bag. You’ll need just one ball of Hoooked Ribbon XL Solids yarn, a fresh-faced jersey yarn that hooks up in a snap.

Reading goes hand in hand with any choice of a hot beverage. From the traditional choices of tea and coffee to the more extravagant hot chocolate or mulled wine, this mug cozy will keep it nice and warm while you read. The pattern is super simple and features DK weight yarn – I love Rico Baby Cotton Soft, because it’s machine washable and has a great stitch definition.

Who says crocheters can’t cable? This aran-inspired cushion is perfect for laying back on the couch or in a reading nook next to a window. You’ll love working up this pillow in Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool, a 100% wool yarn that crocheters love.

Warm my arms slouchy mitts by Kraftling

Chilly days mean chilly fingers, but bookworms can’t risk obscuring their fingers and being unable to turn pages! These textured fingerless mitts are made with a worsted weight alpaca yarn using single crochet and puff stitches – it’s perfect for beginners. I love Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Worsted – it’s super soft, and has a range of stunning shades.

Ebb and Flow Retro afghan by Kraftling

This retro afghan is super snuggly and absolutely delicious for the winter months. Imagine curling up under this afghan to break in a brand new book, fresh off the presses. You could even change up the color palette to fit your home – how about a pastel option? Personally, I can’t get enough of Schachenmayr Wool 85 – it’s 100% virgin wool, and the colors are to die for!

I want to know what you’ve been reading – tell me the best thing you’ve read this past year!

As for me, I read a book called Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein. It’s about 2 women in World War 2 – one a pilot, and one a spy!

    I love your patterns but have not been able to purchase anything because I do not have credit card and I do not get out very much at all. But you still have beautiful patterns.
    Thank you for your time.
