Snowflake Beaded Bookmark Knit Pattern

 

Snowflakeblog

December is Read a New Book Month (and no, I did not make that one up) which is perfect for when the weather is chilly outside and great for staying indoors and for curling up with a good book.  For this reason, I have designed a knitted bookmark which is the third bookmark that’s been featured in this blog.  It makes for a quick project and a thoughtful gift for that beloved bookworm to put to good use.  Its palette is light-colored to mimic the frost that blankets the outdoors during winter.  I chose a snowflake pattern in which there are no two alike in nature representing how unique each and everyone of us are.

Put Some Bling on Your String

I’m excited to announce that our unique, snag-free stitch markers are available for purchase at Etsy.

 

 

 

 

Our Cherry Blossom Stitch Markers, shown above, have five of the stitch markers with a focal bead of Czech fire polished glass pink AB (Aurora Borealis) iridescence which is accented by a white simulated pearl bead at the top. One distinguishing stitch marker to mark beginning of rounds or rows is made of high quality pink cherry blossom (sakura) pressed glass is also topped by a white simulated pearl bead. Beads are suspended on a clear nylon-coated wire. There are six (6) six markers in a set.

 

 

 

 

The Aqua Blue Glass Stitch Markers, shown above, have five of the stitch markers with a focal bead of painted aqua blue glass which is accented by a small aqua blue fire-polished glass bi-cone bead at the top. One distinguishing stitch marker to mark beginning of rounds or rows is made of the same beads as the other five but is topped by a bigger aqua blue fire-polished glass bi-cone bead . Beads are suspended on a clear nylon-coated wire. There are six (6) six markers in a set.

 

 

 

 

Our Yellow Painted Glass Stitch Markers have five of the stitch markers with a focal bead of yellow glass with specks of light yellow and red orange paint and thin squiggly black lines and is accented by a small red-orange fire-polished glass bi-cone bead at the top. One distinguishing stitch marker to mark beginning of rounds or rows is made of the same beads as the other five but is topped by a bigger yellow fire-polished glass bi-cone bead . Beads are suspended on a clear nylon-coated wire. There are six (6) six markers in a set.

I will be featuring the Cherry Blossom Stitch Markers in our next give-away in a few weeks.  You don’t want to miss this, so check back frequently for updates.
