Free Crochet Bookmark Pattern

IMG_2344

I love to read and I love to crochet, so it only made sense to combine my two passions.  I whipped up this bookmark and decided to attach a Crochet Queen charm.  I love the result and use it all the time.

I used Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Cotton #10 and a Steel Crochet Hook Size 7.

ch 13.

Row 1:  sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 11 ch, ch 1, turn.  12 sc.

Row 2:  sc in 2nd sc, (ch 1, sk st, sc in next) 5 times, ch 1, turn.

Row 3:  (sc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, sk st) 5 times, ending row with sc between  the last sc and the turning ch.

Repeat Row 3 until you reach the desired length.

Attach a favorite charm.

Enjoy!

If you like the Crochet Queen charm, I sell the charm with the “o” ring already attached at JadeRoseCrochet.
