Each bookmark works up fast in 1-2 hours tops. So, crochet them in a rainbow of colours for everyone on your gift list today...
I was sure I could do it, if I could just figure out another way to make a rose that makes more sense to me. Since, I have no idea how the row of petals version works.
It took a few attempts to get the rose right, but I got there in the end. Yay!
Now, I needed to decide how I wanted to make the stem and leaves, which I figured out in a breeze.
I added a tassel, and voila, new rose bookmarks were ready for my friend!
I hope you'll enjoy making this rosy bookmark too...

- about 20m (22yd.) - bookmark + tassel
Rosebud is 1” (2.5cm) in diameter, and bookmark is 9” (23cm) long from rosebud to tassel tip, when using cotton thread size 10 and a 1.05mm hook.
Note: This rose bookmark size is an approximate. Your rose bookmark sizing may differ depending on your chosen thread, hook size, tension and tassel length. Adjust these factors to get desired size.
Gauge is not important for this pattern. Use a hook size that produces tight stitches with whichever thread OR thin weight yarn you choose to use.
General Pattern Notes:
Decreases or tog sts are best worked by using the invisible decrease technique, where you only work in one loop (front or back) of a stitch. It is shown in the video tutorial below.
This rosy bookmark starts with the rose. From there, you’ll work the stem + leaves, creating the bookmark length. Finally, you’ll add a tassel to the end of the bookmark.
ONLY turn when directed to do so. Each ch-2 counts as one stitch. *Side facing you = RS.

Rosebud Tip 1: You may like to try working this rose in a thicker yarn weight to see the stitches better if you are having troubles seeing it in thread.
Rosebud Tip 2: If you’ve worked one rosebud and found you needed a longer cord, simply chain more accordingly for the next. Or, begin with a longer chain, and see this tip by Underground Crafter for undoing extra chains! (Scroll down to where you see "Easy fix for when you end Row 1 with too many chains")
