Cluny Cross Bookmark

My Mum asked me to make some bookmarks, so that she could give them to her new friends in the residential home that she is now in. I made the cross one that I had designed last year (Coates size 20) and also designed the variagated one (Lizbeth size 40). I then went on to make the cletic cross in yellow Lizbeth size 20 and maroon Coates size 20. This looks exactly the same front and back.
With this one (which is my favourite) I used the cross design but used clunies in the centre instead of rings and clunies in the corners instead of corner chains.

I love the burgundy and white cross in the centre of the top photograph. Have you ever tried cro-tatting? I'd love to give that a go as I already crochet with thread, and my husband wouldn't be too happy if I went out and bought the extra tools I'd need to do orthodox tatting!

Hi Jennie.

The bookmark that you particularly like is the one that I have already done a pattern for, you can find the link to the PDF in my Free Tatting Patterns on the right side bar of this blog.

If you don't tat, it would take very little money to get started. You already have the thread, and shuttles are not expensive. You can even see beginner's instructions on a video I have on YouTube....again the link is on the right side bar under Video Demonstrations.
