I crochet my own nook cover! 6 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 0
It took me a few weeks to do because I'm busy with school and work, but here it is in all its crocheted glory!!! The cover is made from 100% Bamboo yarn hand-dyed with vegetable dye, the inside is 100% organic cotton yarn, and the cross stitching is just made from polyester embroidery floss lol.

So what do you guys think??

Yeah! And the best part is, it's so soft that if I wanted to, I can turn it over and use it as a pillow lol

Well, I actually made it on the fly! So there isnt a pattern But I can tell you the basics lol

The cover and the inside are made out of two very different yarn sizes (the cover was lace bamboo and the inside was size 4 cotton), so depending on what size you uses...well, you know lol. The lace yarn took FOREVER! I had to double it up and there were over 70 rows lol. But with the Cotton, there were 31 rows down and 36 stitches across, but all you really have to do make sure your cover can wrap around the Nook twice plus an inch for the spine. After I finished the cover and the inside, I sewed them together with gold embroidery thread and stuffed the inside with an old hard back book cover lol. I used a cross stitching method to put those red stripes down the spine, but I did that so the hard backs wouldnt slide around.

The ohm is cross stitched as well, that pattern can be found here: crossstitch.about.com/od/patternsfromyou...s-Stitch-Pattern.htm

The secure tabs on the inside were super easy! The top two tabs were just 3 stitches across and i made them about 3 inches long, then used the same cross stitching method that I did for the spine to secure the tabs into the inside and I made them tight enough to secure the cover

the bottom are just two triangles that are also cross stitched into the inside. Triangles are super easy! www.innerchildcrochet.com/resources/how_.../triangles_rows.html

So... I hope that made sense lol Let me know if you have any questions

Thanks so very much! Not sure where it'll be on my queue, but hopefully I'll get it started early in the new year.
