Knitting is my procrastination tool











This is my page for patterns I designed.

Double Knit Cross Bookmark

Gauge doesn’t matter, but do pick yarns of the same weight.  I used Red Heart SuperSaver.  Not the thinnest yarn, but perfectly acceptable in a standard sized Bible.

I started from the bottom, CO 3 sts of each color (6 sts total; great tutorial for double-knitting here: http://golden-apples.blogspot.com/2007_05_01_archive.html, video on the May 2nd post), knit until it seemed tall enough, cast on 6 (3 of each color) at the end of the next 2 rows, then when the bar was tall enough, bound off 6 sts (3 of each color) at the beginning the next two rows, then continued the middle until I was satisfied and BO.  The dangly bookmark part was added on later with a crochet hook.
