To every book warm, a book mark is as important as the Book itself. Another thing I love doing, apart from Crocheting is reading. I love reading good Novels when time permits and of course a book mark is needed for a mum with a toddler! This crochet bookmark pattern is easy to follow and quick to make

I found myself using my crochet hooks as a book mark, please tell me I’m not the only one who does this. The thought of making a crochet Book mark came up, and I was like, why not make a cute and attractive book mark instead of hooks? since I made this Book divider, I’ve lost count of the number made as gift since then. Cute pendant was added to the last set Made and sent off to my Baby’s Nursery teachers as gift, they loved their Book mark also.

Pattern notes –

  1. Chains at the beginning of the rows/rounds do not count as a stitch
  2. If you do not have a key ring, alternative option using chains is provided. The key ring only makes the divider sturdy
  3. If you want to use different colors you can do after each rounds
  4. This pattern is worked in rounds and then in rows

Let’s get started….
