Scrap Yarn Bookmark

I made this scrap yarn bookmark and posted the video on TikTok/YouTube. It has been very popular and after a request from the lovely Wanda on my YouTube for the written pattern, I have written it up! These only take about 20 minutes to make so are perfect for using up any scraps of yarn you may have hanging about!

Supplies

Method (this bookmark only has one round but I have split it into sections to make it easier to follow)

Start by chaining 33 (or a multiple of 2 + 5 for a bigger/smaller bookmark)

Round 1 (right side RS) –

First Stitch –

Yarn over (YO) and insert your hook into the 2nd chain space. *YO and pull up a loop. Insert your hook into the next chain space (do not yarn over) and pull up a loop*. Repeat *-* in the next 2 chain spaces – you should have 6 loops on your hook. YO and pull through all 6 loops. Chain 1.

Next Stitch: 

  • Insert hook into the ch-1 space of the last stitch– this is called the “eye” of the st. 
  • YO and draw up a loop – you should have 2 loops on the hook. 
  • Insert hook into the leg of the last stitch, YO, and draw up a loop – you should have 3 loops on the hook. 
  • Insert hook into the ch of the last stitch, YO and draw up a loop – you should have 4 loops on the hook.
  • [Insert hook into next ch, YO and draw up a loop] 2 times – you should have 6 loops on the hook.
  • YO, and pull through all 6 loops. 
  • Ch 1 to complete the st.

Repeat the instructions for the “Next Stitch” part of the pattern across the row. When Row 1 is complete, there should be a total of 15 stitches.

Round 2 (Wrong Side)

Turn your work and do not ch 1 to start the row. Instead, go directly into the “eye” (or ch-1 sp) of the st. 

  • Make 2 sc into the eye of each st across. 
  • There should be a total of 30 sc at the end of Row 2. 

To finish off your bookmark, slip stitch into the the first stitch from round 1, cut off yarn and weave in ends. I have added a tassel to the bottom of my bookmark to give it a bit of pizazz!

Happy Crocheting
