Zig Zag Bookmark
"Looking for a book lover gift idea or teacher gift? The ZigZag Bookmark crochet pattern is a great gift for any occasion! This bookmark is worked in only 6 ‘long’ rows Written for 2 sizes (6” and 8” long) it is the perfect stash busting project. Raid those scrap buckets and use up this 7-15 yards of #3 or #4 weight yarn in 2 or 3 colours you have been keeping hold of. Because of the use of the TC2 and 3 together stitches this pattern is an intermediate pattern. Although confident beginners could give this one a go if confident reading written stitch instructions. It would pair up beautifully with the Book Pillow which uses the same stitch combination in the pocket section. You can read more about this bookmark crochet pattern and check out the free version on my blog. "
