    You know of mine

    Is this sentence correct?

    I know more about your country than you of mine.

    Thank you.

    No. For a start, there is no reason to use "about" in the first half, but then use "of" in the second half, when you seem to want them to mean the same thing.

    I know more about your country than you do about mine.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
