I love the texture in the woven spiked puff crochet stitch. And as the puff stitches zigzag around one another, it really makes this design look as though it is woven. I have used three different colours in this particular bookmark, however, as always, don’t be afraid to customize your colours!
As I have with the other bookmark patterns on my site such as the Crescent Bookmark Crochet Pattern, this design is worked using a light weight yarn. It is shown above using Paton’s Grace by Yarnspirations. You will also need a 3.5 mm crochet hook. This project is great for if you have little scraps of yarn lying around!
