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.

    I found this post through a page I follow on Facebook (Flamingo Toes). This is such a cute idea. My neighborhood is starting a book club and I would love to make this for them. Thank you for sharing this project and pattern!

    Love this bookmark! Now to figure out how to make it from the pattern. I am new to much in the crochet world.

    Have a super great crocheting day!

    My granddaughter is having a birthday party this coming weekend and my DIL is going to give out crocheted items I’m making instead of toys. I found your bookmark browsing for headbands and I think I’m repurposing it for one! I think it’s going to look REALLY cute in a little girl’s hair! Thanks SO much for posting the pattern!

    I just made this bookmark & gave it to my friend for her birthday, she loved it! This is such a beautiful bookmark. I’m hoping someone can help me though. I’d like to make another that’s about 2″ shorter but cannot figure out the counts. I’m a self taught relatively new crocheter so if anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it!

      I think it you shorten the chain and omit one of the shell repeats it should be about and inch or so shorter. I would have to sit down and experiment with the pattern.

    Was the shell edging added to this pattern? I don’t see it in the instructions.

    • Kara November 12, 2015 at 1:23 pm #

      The shell edging is done in Round 3
