This knitted book may not be quite as easy as ABC… but it is a great way to try mosaic knitting and makes a beautiful keepsake.

The pattern was first published in Your Crochet and Knitting magazine, Issue 18, as Apple - Boat - Cat Baby Book. This is the updated version of the pattern with front and back covers added and written instructions provided.

Ten squares, A & Apple, B & Boat, C & Cat, D & Duck, Front & Back
Cover, are knitted in mosaic garter stitch. The front cover is worked in intarsia and mosaic garter stitch, however, intarsia can be omitted. To create a book page, two squares are crocheted together using a double crochet stitch. The pages are sewn together to create the book.
