Crochet for Your Kindle

I was talking to my mom the other day and she was telling me that a friend of hers was telling her about e-book readers because he knows a woman in her eighties who has been using a Kindle. I think it’s awesome when older people adopt new technology like that. So in honor of that little story, I thought I’d share some “crochet for Kindle” stuff – some crochet books available on Kindle as well as some Kindle crochet cozies.

Crochet Books for Kindle

I just reviewed a hard copy of a book that a lot of people said they enjoy and it turns out it’s available on the Kindle. It’s Edie Eckman’s Around the Corner Crochet Borders: 150 Colorful, Creative Crocheted Edgings with Charts and Instructions for Turning the Corner Perfectly Every Time.

Here’s a book by an anonymous author that I’ve never seen before but would be curious to check out! It’s called Handbook of Wool Knitting and Crochet.

I was surprised to learn that there are several vintage crochet patterns and collections of such patterns available for download on the Kindle, like this one: Vintage 1940’s Crochet Patterns – Doilies, Shrugs, Afghans, Purses, 30 Vintage Crochet Patterns

Kindle Crochet Cozies

If you have a Kindle then you’ll want to keep it safe and what better way to do that than with a crochet cozy. You can buy one from various places, like Etsy, or you can make one yourself. Here are a few:

I found this one via CraftGossip. There’s a link there to the tutorial for making it.

The pattern for this one is sold for $2 by rivkee on Etsy.

Or just buy a crocheted Kindle cozy already made on Etsy, like this one from bettyrama/

  1. Hi!
    Do not know if they make square hooks as well… have you seen or heard about it?

  2. I LOVE having my patterns on my e-reader! I have a Pandigital Novel that also allows me to save pdf’s so I can pull many of my patterns up on it that way as well. :)

    • That sounds terrific @Martie. I haven’t done as much as I’d like to with this new technology but am definitely wanting to explore more especially as it relates to crochet pattern publishing.

  3. Hi, This book is free today and tomorrow for the Kindle. Crocheting with Fabric is Fun! :)

    I emailed you. Let me know if you would like to review the book. Thanks!
