Cover Your Plans

… and here comes the pattern for the Strickplaner 2019 book cover: “Cover Your Plans” is a slipcover knit on the bias in garter stitch that will make your planner look stylish and protect it when you are carrying it in your bag amongst pointy knitting needles, the banana for your lunch break and a bottle of sunscreen. The knitting is really straightforward and goes back and forth in garter stitch, all techniques involved (increases, decreases – and yes, a couple of short rows) are explained in the video below. After you have finished knitting, the cover is done – just two yarn ends to hide, no seaming required. It looks especially nice in a gradient or a self-striping yarn like Crazy Zauberball by Schoppel (which I used for the sample). You can also use leftovers of your favorite sockyarn, 50 g will be enough. If you would like to use a thicker yarn or knit the slipcover for bigger or wider books (or other boxy objects), you will find tips for that in the video.

Strickplaner 2019 – your knitting planner, Schoppel Crazy Zauberball and lots of useful accessories for your planner are also available as a kit in Strickmich! Shop.

The knitting pattern is available as a free download from this page. Happy knitting!
