A crochet bookmark

After a month away from craftng, sewing and my crochet learning, things have finally calmed down enough here for me to try a little more crochet again!

I started back with something small and simple - a bookmark using a pattern I'd pinned from here.

I learned why my crochet gets smaller and smaller as I work rows - you have to make an extra chain before you start each row!
Something I've probably read or been told before but it only just clicked this time!
I told my younger daughter this when she came home and she said," yeah, my crochet usually ends up like a Christmas tree! - smaller and smaller each row" - so now we know!

I also liked the simple tassles added to the end of the bookmark.

I'm looking forward to getting back to some weekly crochet learning. I've pinned so many amazing projects, but will have to try lots more simple ones first!

I'm very pleased with my little bookmark!
What do you think?


  1. This bookmark is really adorable Jill and you did a great job making it. :)

    1. Thanks so much Julie. I feel like I'm starting to get somewhere with my crochet!


I love comments and try to respond to them all. Thanks for taking the time !
