    1. MY Grandma Dolly, born in 1885, taught me to crochet at age 3 – this was the second thing she had me crochet. I still have it – it looks like the variegated one, but in a pink/white.

      1. Looks exactly like the cross pattern I had made up, including loop and trim. I didn’t publish the pattern though.. I was just giving them away to folks to inspire them in faith. Guess great minds think alike.

    Thank you for a lovely design!

  9. Just want to take a moment to thank YOU for the hard work you’ve done in getting these patterns written out – and for sharing so freely with all of us!
    I’ve been amazed with the crochet community – because of the wonderful, generous hookers like you, the rest of us who are working to improve our own skills can do so – without having to spend TONS of money for classes, etc.!
    It’s almost like gaining a whole new family – one that has shared with all of us out here in the blogosphere (the readers).
    THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
    Blessings to you – always!

  12. I love the picture of the pattern cross. It’s been so long since I’ve crocheted that I have to relearn the terms and stitches., but I’m such a quick learner that it should take me a day or two to learn how to do it.

    Thank you for the pattern.

  13. Hey love the look of these and cant wait to give them a go. One thing i have noticed however is that the written instructions for pattern one are the same as for pattern 2 (in both uk and us terms) where the charts are different. But i look forward to making both as soon as i get the right yarn

  14. Am just crocheting again after a 30 year break! How much time would you say it will take someone to make one of the cross bookmarks? Just need a name day gift in two days and wondering if I should buy the materials to make a cross or just buy a gift due to the lack of time!

    1. Well I think it used to take me about two or three hours to make a cross and the edging. But then I would use spray starch to stiffen it and make the cord the next day. Though if you ironed it till it was dry I suppose you could do it all the same day. Hope this helps.
