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.
