Pink Tulips Bookmark

September 17th, 2004 · 15 Comments · FOs (Finished Objects)

Recently I was playing around with crochet thread color combinations and was really pleased with this one. It reminds me of pink tulips in the spring, like these we planted a couple of years ago.

roll stitch bookmark (pink and green) our pink tulips

The pattern is called Lavender Bookmark and it’s from the booklet How to Thread Crochet on a Roll from Annie’s Attic. I used size 10 cotton crochet thread, but it didn’t have labels, so I can’t list specific brands and colors. Around the edge, I added 20 clear seed beads, which are not called for in the pattern. When I was done, I felt like the bookmark wanted to be a gift, and so I sent it to my dear friend, Julie.

    :) :) :) And it’s so darn pretty, Donna! It stayed in the Jane Austen Collection until I finished them all, now it’s waiting for the perfect book to hang out in again. I love it!

    That is so pretty, and it DOES look like tuips. The roll stitch kinda resembles tatting…very nice!

    That’s extremely pretty and stunning! :) (I love tulips, too!)
    I adapted some of Bonnie Pierce’s free patterns into thread from her site of yarn squares, and they turned out very stunning. I showed them to her and she was impressed. (She’s impressed by anyone who can do the roll stitch.) I love the pink, blue, and purple one you did for your swap, too!
