Basic Crochet: Bookmark Crochet

Y'all. Crocheting is one of the things that actually keep me somewhat busy. I'm way too excited about this project. I don't know but every time I finished a new project, the feeling can be magical or I guess I just love crochets. This weekend I was able to make a Mandela crochet bookmark. Bookmark is so perfect for a book hoarder. A unique and classy bookmark. Isn't cute? They're easy. I love the design and colors. I hope this bookmark can add enjoyment for your reading session. So let's start and make your own.

I used cotton yarns and 3mm steel hook.


1. Make a magic ring. Chain 3. *Double crochet. Chain 1*. Repeat *-* until you have 12 Double crochet. For the last Double crochet, slip stitch into second stitch of the 3 chains.

3. Chain 2. In the same stitch: Yarn over. Insert your hook. Pull through 2 loops. 2 loops remaining. Yarn over. Insert the hook. Pull through 2 loops. Now you have 3 loops remaining. Yarn over. Insert the hook. And pull through 2 loops. Now you have 4 loops remaining. Yarn over and pull through all the loops. Chain 1. Repeat this step in all the space stitches. Slip stitch the last 1 chain.

Lastly. Make a chain stitches. Length depends on your choice. The last stitch insert the yarns for the ribbons. Secure the yarns and cut the excess. And finish.
