Enjoy your summer readings with this pretty and cheerful flower bookmark. The crochet bookmark is quick and easy to whip up, and makes for a cute stashbuster as well. I attached a small tassel at the end of the string, but feel free to add any charm you like.
I used a DK weight yarn for this, but you could also experiment with other yarns as well. Thicker yarns would result in a larger flower.
And the best part is that this flower can be used any which way that you like! Personally, I think it would look lovely on a baby headband, a hair clip, on a keychain or as a cute fridgie. So I hope you have the chance to experiment and find many uses for this crochet flower pattern.
