This basic lace crochet bookmark is crocheted in a DK weight yarn, which helps to avoid excess bulk. The finished size measures 2.25 inches wide, which means that if you wanted to crochet this in a thread you could do that and still end up with a decent width of the bookmark. As for the height, it is easy to adjust by the number of rows you complete.
It’s a very simple pattern, but features a simple lace. And it’s easy enough for a beginner to master as well.
