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.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and everyone is encouraged to “Think Pink.” So in honor of this event, my first knit pattern offering at this blog is a bookmark called, “Mark for the Cure.” Its special design features the awareness ribbon pattern in lace which is outlined with beads placed one at a time with a crochet hook. It has a picot edging and garter-stitched top and bottom borders which taper to a point accented by a sheer ribbon. Think the beading might take too much time? The pattern also includes notes on how to make an unbeaded bookmark. Get the pattern today and make this elegant bookmark for yourself or as a special present to show your support. This knit pattern has easy-to-follow instructions for two bookmark versions and a chart in a 2- page downloadable PDF format for instant delivery.
