  • 4.0 mm "G" crochet hook 
  • Whims Merino Superwash DK in the "red" colorway, note: I used a small amount from the hank, only about a quarter of the total yardage.
  • Tapestry Needle 
  • Scissors 
  • Tape Measure
  • Optional: Beads and bead needle

        • 8 inches tall
        • 2.5 inches wide
        • Fringe adds another 2-2.5 inches to length of total

        Ch 11 (to change the width, use a multiple of 4+3)
        Row 1: In the 5th ch from the hook work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc). *Skip 3 chains and in the chain after that, work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc), repeat from * across until 2 chains remain. Skip a ch, then in the last ch, work 1 dc.

        Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in each ch 1 space from the previous row (center of each fan). Work a dc into the turning chain space.

        Repeat row 2 until bookmark is about 8 inches tall.  Weave in any ends.  If you like you can block your bookmark to really open up that lace, check out my video tutorial below:

        Add fringe along bottom edge and add beads to ends of fringe strands if needed.

        3. This was SUPER easy to crochet thank you for sharing. I love it! ��

        4. I made it! So cool. Thank you! As a novice, I'm not sure how to decrease the width of this pattern. Any ideas?

        5. I absolutely adore this bookmark!! I read so much that it's almost criminal and I love, love, love bookmarks. I make them out of ribbon with double-sided bias tape between them and it stiffens them very nicely. Now I can use crochet as well!!
