Bookmark Pattern Published

I have just published my bookmark pattern.three bookmarks on book

Been working hard on it for the last week.

Here is the description:-

This pattern makes a bookmark based on the Josephine knot (named for Napoleon’s Josephine but much older originally).

Unlike my Celtic bookmark which starts with almost 400 chain, this comes in three parts and the longest requires just under 100 chain to start.

Made in #10 crochet cotton it creates a bookmark about 5.5 inches (14 cm) long and 1.5 inches (4 cm) wide.

It only requires about 30m of #10 crochet cotton.

The pattern contains written instructions, charts that are there mainly to help you keep track of where you are when adding the edging and photographs showing how to fit the parts together to form the bookmark.

Suggestions are given for a longer bookmark or even a belt.

Here is an extract so you can get the flavour of it.

That was in UK terms but there is a version in US terms as well.

Here is the finished bookmark ironed and stiffenedironed bookmarkIt is the right size for an average size bookbookmark in bookbut as it says in the introduction it would be possible to use the same pattern to make a longer one.

    1. If you look at the pattern there are step by step photographs of making the plait from the strip. If you look at them closely you can see that it does twist round left to itself but that as you plait it, it straightens out. You just have to follow the step by step instructions. Not sure what else I can say.


    2. Although your comment is here I presume you are talking about the pattern called “Celtic bookmark” and not the Josephine Knot bookmark here, though that too has photographs showing how to fold it..


I'd love to hear from you
