My First Ever Crochet Pattern

I think it came out pretty good. Pattern to follow.

Rectangle Granny Bookmark

This one can be find here:

Sitting Kitty Bookmark

Can't find the link to this one either. However, I know you can still find it on the web...just search Sitting Kitty Bookmark. I've seen it recently.

Friendship Rings

This is from Hooked On Crochet magazine, June 2006. I have to admit I tried making this bookmark several times and always ended up frogging it. I tried it again recently...took some frogging and trying again but I finally got it done. Once I got to the 3rd motif it was smooth sailing from there on.

Strawberry Bookmark

This patterns is from the Happy Hooker's website. I'm not sure if it still exists. I couldn't find it when I was trying to find the link.

Cow Bookmark

This one came from Crochetville Forum also. Here's the link:

Marshmallow Bunny Bookmark

This is a pattern I found on the Crochetville Forum. I made mine into a bookmark. I still need to expertiment with thread & hook size to get the size I want. This one is made with crochet cotton #10 and #7 steel hook. I'd like it a little larger.

Lil Buster Owl Bookmark

This pattern is originally a fridgie or pin. I made it into a bookmark by adding a tassel to the end. Patterns can be found here:

Rounded Corners Bookmark

This bookmark I found on the web on the Crochetville Form. Pattern can be found here:

Easter Bunny & Egg Bookmark

This bookmark is from Annie's Attic Special Day Bookmarks. I just liked the egg & bunny so I didn't crochet the whole thing.

Granny Square Bookmark

This bookmark is from the leaflet 3 Dozen & One Bookmarks from Annie's Attic. Designed byJanie Herrin.
