Brilliant Bookmarks (T10-003)

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to ch, sl st, sc, hdc, and dc.

Pattern Description:

Do you love to read? Use up your scrap thread to make these clever bookmarks. There are five different borders so each bookmark can have a different look.

The pattern uses a modified filet stitch: using 2 stitches per square instead of the typical 3 per square. Be sure to read the definitions for the blocks and spaces.

This pattern is written in U.S. terms.
