Crochet Pattern: Flower Bookmark

Free Crochet Pattern: Make a flower bookmark to celebrate spring and happy reading!
I don't get to read as much as I'd like because I'm usually too busy crafting. However right now I'm finishing up the book "Flight Behavior" by Barbara Kingsolver. Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors and once again, has not let me down with this beautiful story.

Of course a good book deserves a beautiful bookmark. Since spring is in the air, it only seemed appropriate to make a flower.

This pattern can easily be completed in an evening and would make a thoughtful birthday or Mother's Day, or even bridal shower favors.

Materials



Abbreviations


ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
tr - treble crochet
st - stitch

Directions


With frosty green, ch 100. Sl st in 3rd ch from hook to form a small loop.

Rnd 1 (WS): 6 sc in loop. Do not turn.

Rnd 2 (WS): [Ch 3, sc in next sc, (ch 3, sc in same sc) twice] 6 times.

Fasten off.

Join orchid pink in any ch 3 space. The petals are worked in continuous rounds with the wrong side (the inside of the flower) always facing.

Rnd 3: Sc in same ch 3 space, ch 3, sc in same ch 3 space, ch 3, [sc in next ch 3 space, ch 3, sc in same ch 3 space, ch 3] 17 times.

Rnd 4: Sc in first ch 3 space of Rnd 1, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 3 space, ch 1, sc in next ch 3 space, [sc in next ch 3 space, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 3 space, ch 1, sc in next ch 3 space] 11 times.

Rnd 5: [Sc in next sc, 2 hdc in ch 1 space, 2 dc in next dc, 3 tr in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, 2 hdc in ch 1 space, sc in next sc] 12 times.

Rnd 6: [Sc in next 5 sts, (dc, ch 1, dc) in each of next 3 sts, sc in next 5 sts] 12 times, sl st in next st, fasten off.

Cut an 18 inch length of orchid pink yarn and use a plastic yarn needle to weave it through the ch 3 spaces of Rnd 3. Pull the yarn tightly and tie in a knot. Trim the extra length of yarn.

I also like to tie a small knot at the end of the stem so the flower doesn't accidentally slip out of my book.
