Pattern Description:

You remember the classic story of little red riding hood, in her rich red cloak skipping through the woods. This intermediate level crochet bookmark pattern is to create that memorable character including her lovely red cloak and basket. Take a piece of this classic story and place your very own little red riding hood in your next read. And don't forget when you complete your little red riding hood bookmark; send a picture over to (email) so I can share your finished master piece. It will be shared on my customer projects Pinterest board and on my blog.

Her basket can hang outside the book to remind any reader that there is more story to go. Her three-dimensional head with hood that ties at the neck, hang outside the book.

Her cloak completely encircles her white pinafore and chemise and is detachable. Dressed in her best to go see grandma, the chemise has a large ruffled hem.

Boye Steel Crochet hook size 1 (2.25mm). This is a larger size hook than usually used with thread crochet and makes working with thread crochet easier for those who are not comfortable with thread.
