I’m a hooker.
That is, I like to crochet. Crocheting looks like knitting to the untrained eye, but while knitting uses needles, crocheting uses hooks.
Hence the term hooker. I don’t knit. I don’t play with needles. I hook. And I like the things I make, like this capitalist pig I made for my friend who hates his job:
My love for hooking and books are going to unite in this post. I have one quarter of school left until I graduate, and I know that I can’t be idle for long. So while researching some cook crocheting projects for myself, I decided to put together a list of awesome literary crocheting and share it with all of you.
This project might be a little ambitious to start with, but heck, it’s awesome. Who doesn’t want their own Smaug? I kind of wish I could insert Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice into it, somehow.
Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers, and they make really cute bookmarks, too. This project is also a lot less ambitious and easier for a beginning hooker to execute.
This pattern calls it a shopping bag, but all my shopping has to do with books, so I call it a book shopping bag. This pattern is easy to make and can carry a whole bunch of books.
Harry Potter House Scarves
Yes, that’s right, I couldn’t make a post with crocheting patterns without including a Harry Potter house scarf.
Speaking of Harry Potter, this hat would please both child fan of Harry Potter and adult fan.
I couldn’t leave off the most famous literary hat of them all.
I’ve made my own pencil cases before, and with this pattern, I think I’ll be making another pencil case soon.
I want to make about a dozen of these for presents. These not only look well put together, but adorable and simple as well.
This might just be a little more ambitious than the Smaug pattern at the beginning of the post, but it looks as if it’d be well worth the effort, especially come winter.
