Book Cover?
Does anyone have a free pattern for a simple book cover, that I can use for a text book? I need to get a cover for one of my text books and right now I'm using a scarf for it, since I just started school. I need something simple and quick for either 9s or 10s, no dpns, or circulars please

I was going to recommend sample wallpaper, but then I realized you were talking about a knitting pattern. Never heard of such, but someone somewhere probably has.

I just need something quick and simple I can do in like 2 hours, I don't mind if it's not a knitting pattern... I just need something to cover it or my teacher is going to be mad at me >.<

We used to cut up brown paper grocery sacks. Cut one open along the seam and cut the bottom off. Open the book flat and cut out about 2-3" around the outside of the book. Make diagonal cuts at the spine \__/ so you have a flap. Fold the flaps to the inside, then fold the edges of the paper around the book edges and tape them down. Don't tape the book, just paper to paper, and before you do, close the book to make sure the folds aren't too tight.

1 problem with that, no paper bags... hence why I wanted to knit it, ehh I think I will just make a stockinette stitch cover, though not sure how to do the whole thing

Yeah, paper bags of any sort are an endagered species. At least they break down in landfills unlike plastic bags...

Decided to do a simple garter stitch cover, I just need to finish it up, I have 11 rows done already, I'll have to use my scarf for a day or 2, until I finish this project
