Pretty Little Stash-Busting Bookmark

I needed a gift in a hurry, so I decided to try this lace pattern as a bookmark.........I ruined the first one I made by melting the yarn, but this knits up so quickly, I was able to make a second one in time!  The metallic yarn makes it a bit difficult to see the stitches in the photo, but you can get the general idea.

Of course the pattern is free.  It may also be found on as a PDF and, as always, you can email me at and I will email you a copy. 

Please stop by our Facebook pages for Delaware Head Huggers and for Kozy Kovers for Kids.  Come join us as we make a difference.  Stop by our websites also to see what we're up to, find out how to donate or just learn more about what we do.

This will work with any yarn and whatever needles are recommended for the yarn you are using.  I used a 2-weight metallic yarn for this one and size 3 needles.  The bookmark is about 1.5 inches wide and about 8 inches long.  Different yarn will give you different dimensions, but really, that’s fine for a bookmark!  Play around with it and see what you get!
