Flower Bookmark[/u]




Materials:
- Size G Hook
- Small Amount of Worsted Weight Yarn in (I Used Read Heart):
  - bright yellow
  - forest green

Stem:
Ch 46 (on the last chain pull a big loop and pull tight to make a knot)



Flower:

For the start of the flower you need to make a magic loop.

Magic loop => hold your palm of the hand that you use to hold the yarn so that it is facing you; grab your yarn and put on you had so that the tail is touching your palm and over your first 2 fingers; wrap the yarn once around your fist two fingers; turn your hand over and insert your hook so that it is under two strands of yarn; take the yarn off your fingers by holding on to it with one of your fingers; pinch the two strands together to hold it; yarn over with the ball end and sl st
(note: this does not count as the first sc in this pattern)

Round 1: 10 sc in the magic loop (note: make sure when you sc that there are 2
strands of your your sc around) pull the tail of the yarn tight but not
too tight so that it forms a circle
Round 2: [sc, hdc, dc, in the next st; dc, hdc, sc in the st after that] repeat
until the end sl st in the sc and ch1 to make a knot



Leaves (make 2):
Row 1: Ch 2
Row 2: In 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc, ch1 turn (3 sc)
Row 3: sc inc in next 2 sts, sc across, ch1 turn (5 sc)
Row 4: sc across to last 2 sts, sc inc in the next 2 sts ch1 [make a big loop and
pull tight to make a knot] (7sc)



To Assemble:
-Leaves: stitch up the sides of the leaves so that it looks like a crescent
moon; tie it to one end of the stem so the crescent shape faces
upwards like a smile; weave in the ends
-Flower: at the opposite end of the stem tie the stem to the flower weave in the ends
