~ p c crochet hook bookmark ~

If you crochet, read and work plastic - then this is the bookmark for you.

The bookmark on the right is worked with continental stitch, and the one on the left is blank with a round of sc worked around the edges - which was a little tricky to do.  I used size 3 cotton and a size B crochet hook, but I think I should of used size 10 cotton - it would of been a little easier to get the thread through the holes.  If I make another one, I will go with the size 10.

For the crochet edge bookmark:  put a sl st on your (real) crochet hook, insert hook into any hole, yarn over, pull through and complete as a sc.  Sc in each hole on the straight lines, and 2 sc in each corner square around the piece.  Join with a sl st to the 1st sc and end off.  Tie the ends into a knot and then weave the tails through the sc stitches.

For the solid bookmark:  using worsted weight yarn, work the piece using the continental stitch.  Whipstitch around the edge and you're done.

Here's the graph for the crochet hook bookmark:

I count holes when I cut the plastic canvas - this one is 6 holes across and 55 holes top to bottom.
