Simple Multi-colored Bookmark (Tatting)

Project Description

What inspired your project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Tatted Bookmark by Nancy Price Link to website or photo www.be-stitched.com/bookmark.asp What are you most proud of? Making up my own pattern after the first row & figuring out a solution so I could use the thread I liked

What you will need

  • Studio One Hand-Dyed Yarn- I bought a few hanks of some lace-weight cotton yarn from an indie dyer when I was at Tempe Yarn and FIber
  • visiting my sister in AZ. I really like the colors
  • but it's very soft and fragile
  • so I actually went through and added more plying twist as I went so the yarn wouldn't fall apart. The pattern I used is available at http://web.archive.org/web/20130329132002/http://www.be-stitched.com/bookmark.asp if the other link doesn't work. I followed the pattern for the first row
  • but when I tried to do the second
  • it looked much too busy with the multi-colored yarn and the pattern competing
  • so I made up a different round 2 that was only chains to keep it simple.
