Chain of Hearts Bookmark


I designed this bookmark, along with a few others when I had a little unanticipated extra time in my day. This sample is knit on US size 1 needles with size 10 cotton. It's about 1.25" wide. I made the sample in the picture shorter than I intended because I decided half way through it would look good sewn onto a piece of 1" white ribbon (which I have to buy).
If I knit this again I will use US size 2 needles, and size 3 cotton.

I knit this up with Plymouth Buckingham finger yarn on a size 6 needle and it looks really nice. TY for sharing! I'm using it as a test swatch for blocking lace and practice.

Very Lovely Pattern!
Great Job!
