Simple Lace Bookmark Free Crochet Pattern


I have a big collection of crochet bookmarks. And there used to be time when I actually used them! 

Unfortunately, no more! 

No matter how many times I've promised myself that I'll get back to reading, somehow I just can't. I start a book to read, and never finish it. 


But I continue making crochet bookmarks! It's just fun! 

I use the leftover thread from the doilies I make. 




This bookmark is super easy. No fancy stitches here. But still cute. 




I hope you'll enjoy this pattern!

Thank you so much for all of your support, prayers and good wishes for my dad and my family. 
I'm happy to share that my dad is doing much better now. He is in a rehabilitation center right now. He's going to stay there until the end of the month, which is a long time, but the good thing is he is getting 24/7 medical care that he needs there. 

Again, thank you so much! Your comments meant a lot to me. I read and re-read them many times!
