Free Book mark Pattern

Simple Free Crochet Bookmark Pattern

A cute crochet bookmark is a beautiful reminder of the page you are currently reading and your craft. This crochet bookmark pattern works quickly and uses up scrap ends of yarn.

Free Crochet Book Mark Pattern. This pattern works up super fast and can be made using any yarn weight of choice.

A bookmark is essential to every avid reader, and when a crocheter loves reading, a free crochet bookmark pattern is appropriate.

I love making easy crochet bookmark/keychain patterns because they are fun and work up faster. This pattern also makes good use of ends of yarn. It would make a beautiful stash-busting pattern for little yards of yarn kept away.

This easy crochet bookmark pattern can be made using any yarn weight, from threads to fingering, double knitting, and worsted weight yarn. I wouldn’t recommend chunky yarns to prevent your books from splitting.

These bookmarks can be made within minutes, making this pattern a quick gift item.

Last year, I designed my first crochet bookmark pattern; check it out here. This Bookmark can be customized as a teacher’s appreciation gift!
