I started designing the Owl Book Cover Pattern when I saw that my books were getting frayed and bent by stuffing them into my purse everyday. The book cover protects the pages and makes it easier to store in my bag. It can of course be used for anything you want — makeup bag, i-pad cover or tablets etc. Final size of storage area excluding flap is 8 x 6 inches FLAT — will stretch to accommodate larger objects.

Knitting a book cover is perfect for a new knitter with basic skills. Teens will love having a sweater for each of their school books. After finishing your first knit book cover, get creative, adding your own personality to the original pattern with different stitches and yarn choices. Remember, everyone knits differently. To start your project with exact measurements, you may want to knit a test strip and measure how many stitches and rows it takes to make an inch. Gather or purchase your supplies.
To start out, I knitted a test swatch to see how many stitches were needed to create an inch with the size of yarn and needles I was using. I then cast on the amount I needed to get the right width, based on my count from the swatch I made it to cover a catalogue. This project was not about precision. I initially though that I would sew the knitted bit to the front page of the catalogue, but then I decided staples would be easier. I used pretty teal ones from Target Teal!
