Thread Bookmarks


Date: December 2005

I needed 2 more bookmarks for co-worker gifts and whipped these up Thursday night!

  • Colors: White (Royal Classic, size 10)
    Pattern: Snowflake - Design by Roberta Maier
    Book: 3 Dozen & One Bookmarks - Leaflet 873720 - Copyright 2002 - Annie's Attic
    Hook: 4 (2.0 mm)
  • Colors: Mint (light green), Orchid Pink (Royal Classic, size 10)
    Pattern: Flower Key - Design by Bettie Dowler
    Book: 3 Dozen & One Bookmarks - Leaflet 873720 - Copyright 2002 - Annie's Attic
    Hook: 4 (2.0 mm)


I'm stumped on how to do the "shell in shell" part of the Flower Key Bookmark. Is there any way you can help me with this?

Thank you

Hi, Janet - "shell in shell" usually means to make a shell stitch in the center of the shell on the previous row. For example, if the shell has 5 dc, then a shell on the next row would go in the 3rd dc of the shell on the previous row.
