2. Kipas Bookmark
Designer Lenny Adziman says the word kipas means “fan” in Bahasa Indonesia. You can clearly see the fan inspiration here in this colorful crocheted bookmark. Use scrap variegated yarn to make yours, or go for a solid color.

3. Mini Fish Appliqué
You’ll love the story behind the design of this fish-shaped crochet bookmark. Designer Pan created these in honor of her brother, Jon Erikson. Jon was the first swimmer ever to cross the English Channel three times, so it’s only appropriate that he be honored with a fish. While this pattern is perfect for bookmarks, you can use the fish for any project that calls for appliqué.

4. Sweetheart Bookmark
This is another great free bookmark pattern for beginners. The little heart is totally optional, but if you’re a new crocheter, the added detail will help you learn how to crochet embellishments and give you some practice crocheting in the round.

5. Pressed Flower Bookmark
This bookmark uses very little yarn — and it takes very little time to make! Crochet the stem as short or as long as you need it. If you know all the foundation stitches of crochet, you’ll breeze right through this pattern.

6. Tasseled Bookmark
So many possibilities exist for embellishing this crochet bookmark. Tie a little rosebud around it like the one in the sample photo above, stitch some appliqué onto the bookmark, or don’t add any embellishment at all and let the pretty stitches have all the attention.

7. Elegant Bookmark
This bookmark has a couple of little extras that set it apart from the more basic bookmark patterns. The cotton yarn gives it a delicate, elegant look while the ribbon gives it some shape and durability.
