So i crocheted a flower bookmark recently. Read below for instructions on how to make it.

*chain 8, sc in second chain from hook, hdc in next 5 chains, sc in the last chain, sl st into the same stitch and sl st to the next st*, rep ** 11 more times.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.



Tassel and stem:

  • Take four strands of green colour yarn measuring about 60 inches each and keep it aside.
  • To make the tassels, loosely wrap green colour yarn around your fingers for 15 times (pic 1).
  • Insert the hook through the loop of the wrapped yarn and pick up the 4 strands of yarn (that we measured and cut before) from under (pic 2) and make a slip stitch (pic 3).
  • Continue to chain 40 or up to your desired length (with the 4 strands held together) and cut off the yarn leaving a long tail for sewing to the flower.
  • Take another small strand of green colour yarn and wrap it around the tassel and finish it with a double knot to make the head of the tassel (pic 5 and 6).
  • Trim off the excess yarn in tassel to a uniform length.
  • Now sew the other tail end of the stem to the back of the flower (pic 8).



Your flower bookmark is now done!
