This is a gorgeous adorable bookmark. You can find the pattern here.

I crocheted this little beauty with some size 10 cotton crochet thread and a size US4/1.75mm hook. It worked up SO quickly, only a few days. I'd have had it done in one day, but my nails are incredibly long and slow everything down.

That's Nice
That's beautiful! I tried this pattern before, with no success. I wanted to make it for the lady's in my quilting group. We are always marking pages of patterns for our next project. That came out so nice. I think I will give it another try. Thanks for sharing.

that is gorgeous! I think I might give it a try. I've never attempted crochet with such a small hook, but I do have some cotton to use up.

Well done!

That's beautiful! I've been starting to practice with crochet lately, and I'm gonna mark that pattern! It would make a great little gift.

I love this bookmark! I was spinning last night, then switched to knit a few rows of a sock, then remembered this bookmark. I showed it to DH once I had 4 fans crocheted. He immediately claimed it as his own.

I have a lot of varigated embroidery floss that will look great in this pattern!

Thanks!!

Beautiful! This is one of my favorite bookmark patterns!! It looks so nice in solids or variegated colors. And you're right - it does work up pretty quickly! I love the beads on the bottom too!
