How to Crochet a Bookmark in less than 2 hours
As I mentioned in my last blog with teaching the Hackesttown Women, this was a project all can do and be able to compete in less than 2 hours if you are beginner and teach yourself the basic stitches of crochet.
So let us get started!
Use any Yarn in your stash- worsted eight yarn.
Hook - For beginners I recommend size I or K
ch - chain
st - stitch
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
RS - right side
Foundation Row(RS): Sc into second ch from hook and into each ch across- 21 stitches total. Ch 3, turn
Row 1: Skip first stitch, dc into each stitch across - 21 stitches total. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Sc into each st across - 21 sts total. Do not fasten off.
Working along sides of row, (ch 20, slip st into next row below) 3 times. Fasten off.
THE End! What is not easy? :)
