I made this reading companion bookmark series for fun. It commemorates Jack's historic climb up the hill with Jill. I really liked how it worked and I think the result is really cute. This is a fast pattern to make and can be done in about a day. It makes a quick gift for a reader. What a delightful gift to give to anyone who loves to read. It would make a wonderful award for any academic achievement or to give a graduate to acknowlegde that reading is a life long habit. I have one customer who loves to add these as package adornments to spruce up her packages. What a great gift for any smart father who loves to read. It uses small amounts of crochet thread and any colors can be used so it is a great project to use up small amounts of crochet thread This pattern uses 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.
