Seasons not only elucidate our choice of cloth but also define our habitat. Migration of birds, sprouting of fruits and blooming flowers are dependent on seasons. But have you considered leaves? Well, technically leaves are not dependent on seasons but the ageing of the leaf is certainly affected by it. They mature from spring through summer. In Autumn, they start ageing and acquire certain shades of brown, orange, red and yellow colour. We can label those leaves or trees as ornamental trees. When you think about any ornamental trees, your first choice is “Maple”. The outline of a maple leaf is very beautiful. Autumn season is considered to be dry and withering but due to red and orange maple leaves, I think, they are considered to be one of the most beautiful seasons. They mollify the dry and chilly weather.
Wonderstruck by the beauty of Maple, I decided to make one leaf for myself as a bookmark. I chose the maple pattern from MrsMicawber – Maple Leaf Pattern. I picked up the yarn from my stash basket and started making the leaf. However, towards the end, instead of closing the stitch, I continued making chain 60 (or as per the length of my book) to create a string. At the end, I made one tassel out of the same yarn and attached it to the string. This is my Fall Season bookmark!
- String length: 9″
- Maple Leaf: 2″
The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.
- You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pompom.
- You can attach flowers, beads, tassel at the end of the bookmark
- You can add your tag.
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
