I love to read and I love to crochet bookmarks! So I am hoping that you will love this free crochet pattern for a Spiked Granny Stitch crochet bookmark!
I love to read and when I cozy up with my cup of hot coffee, my favourite crochet throw, and my latest read, I love to turn the pages to reveal a crocheted bookmark!
I Love Crochet Bookmarks!
If you have been following my blog for a bit, you will know that I have several crochet bookmark patterns including the Chevron Bookmark – A Free Crochet Pattern, the Making Waves Bookmark – Free Crochet Pattern and the Granny Square Bookmark – Free Crochet Pattern. I thought it’s about time I added to my collection, and thus we have the Spiked Granny Square Bookmark!
Paton’s Grace Yarn by Yarnspirations:
As with all of my other crochet bookmark patterns, I am using the Paton’s Grace Yarn by Yarnspirations. It is a light weight (3#) mercerized 100% cotton yarn. I love using it for these bookmarks because it comes in a variety of colours, it’s light weight, but not too light to work with.
Along with the Paton’s Grace yarn I am using a 3.5 mm crochet hook. You will also need a yarn needle and scissors for finishing off your work. I did not feel that I needed to block these bookmark however you may if you desire. Because they are cotton, ironing them is also an option.
Crochet Bookmarks make great gifts!
I do use my bookmarks regularly, but they have also made great gifts! They do not take too long to make. I have had friends make them and others purchase them from me to give as teachers gifts for Christmas and at the end of the year. These would make a great addition to your spring and winter craft sale tables!
As always, the entire written pattern can be found below followed by a free video tutorial. However, if you would like to purchase the PDF or save the pattern to your library you may do so through either my Etsy or Ravelry Shop linked below:
At the moment I do have two more bookmark patterns in my lineup! So stay tuned, they will be coming to my YouTube Channel and my blog soon. I also hope, once the collection is complete, to offer them as a bundle or ebook.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I invite you to connect on Facebook, IG and YouTube! I love to see what you are working on and your final products!
Until next time happy crocheting!
