Pretty Lace Crochet Bookmark Pattern
Here’s what you will need:

Fasten off, weave in ends. Block if desired (see my post How to Block Knit and Crochet Items).
Adding the Ribbon
Cut a piece of ribbon approximately 26 in. length. Insert one end of the ribbon underneath the first single crochet on one end of the bookmark, leaving equal lengths on both sides. Fold ribbon in half so ends meet. Holding the ends together, weave ribbon over and under the single crochets across bookmark as shown below. When you reach the end, separate ribbon again so one end goes over the top and the other goes underneath the bookmark, make a knot and snip to desired length.
