Let's make some tiny, knitted books with secret compartments, just for the pure pleasure of it!

The utterly ingenious pattern by Hunter Hammersen walks you through absolutely every step of creating these knitted books, from how to block your book-in-progress to how to attach the inner "pages" (which is actually your handy storage compartment).

I created a palette of hand-dyed yarn colors inspired by antiquarian books and used bookstores, and I have gathered absolutely positively everything you will need to create 1 sliding drawer book (the large one) and 2 altoid-tin style books (the small one).

Your kit includes

  • Hand-dyed yarn in my 80/20 Smooth Sock (fingering weight) base. You get a full skein (115g) of the main colorway of your choice and a half-skein (50g) of Lightly Foxed (the creamy and gently speckled "pages" colorway).
  • The insides: 2 altoid-style tins and 1 large heavy cardboard slide box (packed flat; you'll glue it together)
  • The outsides: Heavy-duty cardboard covers & spines for all 3 "books"
  • Hardware & notions: All the rare earth magnets you'll need (24 tiny ones), a tapestry needle and stitch markers in adorable corked glass vials, and a teeny tube of superglue
  • The embellishments: Hand-dyed silk embroidery thread, satin-finish ribbon for making pulls and ties, and a metal Merchant & Mills button
  • A guided knit-along video. Your kit includes a video with my peer-to-peer tips for making these little books.

Just think how adorable your two little knitted books will be, as they sit on your coffee table or desk, holding your knitting notions—or maybe a secret love note!
