Pattern Description:

This bookmark is to Honor, my brother, JON ERIKSON.
On June 15, 2014 he was inducted into the
International Swimming Hall of Fame.
3 Cheers! We are all so proud of you!
On August 11-13, 1981, Jon was the first person EVER, to swim
The English Channel Three Ways non Stop! (38 hours and 27 minutes)
He and his father, TED ERIKSON, both swim like FISH!
Unfortunately, I did not get that gene, but I do like to take baths.

This is a very easy pattern.
Enjoy!
Happy Hooking!
