A selection of Bookmarks

My Creation

These bookmarks where knitted for my nieces and nephews aged between 3 - 12. They all love to read so I thought a lovely little bookmark would mean them not turning down the pages (which is a pet hate of mine - I hate dog ears). These bookmarks are so easy to knit and to use up odd pieces or left over wool, in this era of reduce, re-use and recycle! The basic bookmark cast on 9 stitches and knit till it measures 6 or 7 inches. This pattern can be alternated using various different stitches and sizes of needles with different wool types.

These are lovely, and good advice , but I must confess I make beaded bookmarks and beaded book thongs, but although I read every day and dont turn over the pages I put books down open, thus straining the spine. Mybe I should take a leaf out of your book ( Pun intended) :)

Fabulous.nice to hear your nephews and nieces like to read,not many kids do these days.It's also a pet hate of mine to see book pages turned down at the corner.I love books and think they should be respected, and beadcrazy,,,,NAUGHTY you for putting down a book open,especially since you make your own bookmarks........tut tut!!! lol
