Everyone who likes to read books love unusual and beautiful bookmarks. When you know how to knit, create a beautiful and original bookmark in a book - the task is simple and enjoyable. Today I will show you how to quickly create a beautiful bookmark - a flower from a small number of threads. To create this flower, even small hanks that you have left from previous products will be enough, often these hanks accumulate and they are almost not used. So this master class will allow you to solve two problems at once - it will save you from the accumulated hanks and allow you to make an unusual bookmark for your favorite book.

What you may need to work:
  • The yarn of two colors is green for the stem of the flower and any color that you like for the petals, I have it is white.
  • Scissors.
  • Crochet hook

materials for work

Start knitting as you prefer, for this flower is ideal, as Amigurumi loop of six single crochet stitches, and a chain of six air loops connected in a circle. The second row binds six lower columns, knitting two in each lower column, and form twelve new ones. The third row should consist of eighteen double crochets, that is, we knit one column and knit the next two in one column of the bottom row, and so on to the end. The fourth row will be of twenty-four columns, two columns in one lower knit in two. You should have such a circle.

Start knitting

We begin to knit the petals. In the bottom three columns we knit five double crochet. They are shown under the hook, I begin to knit a new petal there, two two-leaf petals are ready.

We start tying the petals

We unfold the knit and on these five stitches we knit six new crochet stitches. Again we unfold the knit and tie the columns. We knit the first three columns without a crochet, the fourth we do with a half-crochet and the last two with a crochet. It turns out here is such a pointed semi-petal.

Expand the knit

We tie the last column to the side with ordinary single crochet columns, we reach the first row of the petal and begin to knit the second part of the petal. We also knit the remaining two-leafed petals.

We tie the last column

You should get such a flower with four double-leafed petals.

flower with four petals

Pass a green thread through the hole that formed at the beginning of knitting.

we pass the green thread

We knit a green ball, couple it with a flower and begin to knit a chain of air loops on the other side of the flower.

Knit a green ball

We knit about twenty air loops and begin to form leaves. We knit a few air loops and tie them with single crochet and double crochet in the middle to make the sheet form. So we knit two leaves or one, as you like, and make further a chain of air loops to the desired bookmark size. We hide the end of the thread in the air loops.

bookmark for book

The result was such an original, delicate and beautiful bookmark for the book. You can use it for a very long time. Unlike paper bookmarks, the flower can be washed, so that it will delight you for a long time.
