Spiral Rose Bookmark

This is simplicity as its best. Something that look absolutely stunning – but with a little bit of know how – it’s actually surprisingly simple.

I’ve been teaching crochet flower workshops for a while, to beginners and more experienced crocheters alike.

One thing they all say is that they can’t believe how something so simple looks so effective.

Pair these with a simple leaf, and a chain – and a quick and easy bookmark in about 10 minutes! (The lazy crocheter strikes again)

Spiral roses

The ones in the picture above were made with various mercerised cottons I had in my stash.

I think the dusky pink was a free little ball from Yarn and Colour that came with Inside Crochet magazine a while ago.

The Bright pink would have been a duo – quite a bouncy cotton.

And the light pink almost certainly Yarnart begonia, the cotton that I used to make Those hats!

The yarn you use (and the camera you use to take the photos and the background), can make a huge difference (see above!).

I used a lovely premium baby acrylic to make these ones above.

You can use the roses as an embelishment – or turn them into a book mark too!
