The pattern for this bookmark is from Crochet and Tatting Heirloom Edition, Star Book #66 by American Thread Company, 1949.
I used a steel hook size 1.25 mm and size ten crochet cotton thread. You will also need about 1/4 yard of narrow ribbon.
I post the pattern below exactly as it appears in the original publication.
Suggestion: Use a bit of clear glue to secure the ends of the ribbon.
2nd Row - dc in next dc, ch 5, 1 dc in next dc, dc in 3rd st of ch, ch 3, to turn each row.
3rd Row - Repeat 2nd row.
4th Row - dc in next dc, ch 2, skip 2 sts of ch, sl st in next st, ch 2, 1 dc in next dc, dc in 3rd st of ch.
Repeat 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rows 8 times, break thread. Attach threat in top of dc of 22nd row and working alone side, ch 3, dc in next st, ch 5, skip 1 row, 1 dc in each of the next 2 sts, ch 3, turn.
