Knitted Bible cover

Captain’s Log, Stardate 04.24.2007

Yup, I’m at it again.

My new Bible needs a cover, and one of my youth group kids suggested I knit one.

This was a great idea because I wanted a cover that was pink and fuzzy.

Isn’t it awesome? I used 7 types of eyelash yarn for the stripes. I knitted the cover with one strand of eyelash yarn held together with one strand of worsted weight acrylic yarn, and I did a simple garter stitch.

I made a mistake and the cover ended up too long, so I had to fold the edges over. I also made the inside sections with two strands of worsted weight yarn, but I should have used just one strand because it’s a bit bulky.

However, on a whole, I’m pretty pleased with it. What do you guys think?


  1. I love the cover Camy! You may have stumbled upon a new secondary career :-)

  2. It's so cute and fun and fuzzy and pink! I love it!

  3. I LOVE THIS!! The colors are tremendous and the fuzzy awesome!

    Great job!

    (When are you going to give one away? Sign me up!)

  4. It's cool! That would certainly turn heads in my church, lol!

  5. I'm speechless. Utterly speechless. I mean ... it's so ... fuzzy. And pink! And orange and blue and green and ... FUZZY!

    It's perfect. Absolutely perfect.

    : )

  6. Makes you want to curl up with your Bible, doesn't it?

    Sheryl may be onto something there, Camy! Hm, a booth at ICRS with knitted Bible covers?

    It's colorful and crazy and fun. I like it!

  7. Um, no. If I was ushering and you tried to get in using something other than one of the four approved Bible covers, I would have to deny seating in the main section. Hmmm, I wonder if that’s why they never let me usher. Anyhoo, I dropped in from the High Calling Blog Tour, and got distracted by the crazy Bible case. (Shhh, don’t tell anybody, but I really love it.) ;-)

  8. Oooh la la...love it!!! You are so creative withyour knitting. I never would have guessed you could knit a bible cover. I agree with Tracy. When are you giving one away? :)

  9. Camy, my friend, you obviously have waaaay too much time on your hands. Since you're in need of something to do, get yourself on a plane, and come out here to help me pack up and fix up my house so I can sell it and move. Or not.

  10. How can you find your Bible in all of that!!!!!! You will never lose it, that's for sure - LOL!!!

  11. Kinda looks like a giant catapillar ate way too many fruit loops, then sneezed way too hard.

  12. Hi! I was surfing the net looking for ideas on a knitted cover for my bible, and I found yours...BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you for sharing!
    Regards from Chile,

  13. This came out beautifully.

  14. How pretty!!! My oldest dd and two little girls would flip for it. I wish I knew how to knit.
