Here’s an easy project that knits up quick and makes a sweet little thoughtful gift for the writers and readers in your life! The pattern is simple to memorize- only two rows, repeated over and over. Take a look!

Supplies:

Fingering weight yarn, (variegated looks best)

knitting needles, size 2

Directions:

Cast on 10 stitches with long-tail cast on.

Row 1 (wrong side): purl 1, slip 1 (with yarn in back). Repeat this pattern for all 10 stitches, to the end of the row.

Row 2 (right side): knit 1, slip 1 (with yarn in front). Repeat this pattern for all 10 stitches, to the end of the row.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you reach a desired length (usually a bookmark is approximately 8-9 inches or so).

Bind off all 10 stitches.

To keep the bookmark from curling and to make it lie flat properly, wash it in warm water with a neutral pH balanced soap. Squeeze moisture out with a towel. Block to dimensions 9″ x 1″ (Finishing size may vary due to how tight or loose one knits.) There you go!

    I am blessed to have one of these beautiful gifts. I most definitely use it as a book marker and reminds me of my friend, Debra.
