White Petals Flower Bookmark

Anything new always attracts us. This attraction is applicable to the kids too. Latest gadgets, new advanced toy, access to free internet draws everyone towards them. It is impossible to find any person who will deny accessing latest items.

The use of E-books, audiobooks, podcasts, videos provides lots of information. Since the accessibility, availability, portability compels us to use more, we tend to strain ourselves more than we ever realise. Whereas, if you read a physical book, you will not strain your eyes and will feel better.

Creating colourful, creative and interesting bookmarks is an attempt to push the kids to read a paper-based book instead of using tablets or smartphones. They can flash their lovely bookmarks and it will attract another kid to have one and use for their regular courses.

These bookmarks are easy to make using leftover yarns so you can gift to everyone. A creative handmade gift from you when you gift a book to someone.

Process:

I liked the Hydrangea flower pattern from Maggie Crochet and thought to make one for gifting a book along with a flower bookmark to my colleague’s daughter. The pattern confused me at certain steps so I am trying to elaborate in my style. The process looks difficult but once the written instructions are clarified it becomes simple. The instructions include Single Crochet (SC), Double Crochet (DC) and Treble Crochet (TC) stitches along with Chain (Ch) and Slip Stitch (SL ST).

The pattern can be divided into 2 parts:

  1. The Hydrangea flower
  2. The stem and the tag

Hydrangea Flower:-

The flower is formed in 2 ways. First, the base is created and then the petals are formed.

Flower Base:-

R1: Starting with a Magic Circle, Ch 1 and 6 Single Crochet (SC); join with a Sl ST to the 1st SC. Total 6 SC.

R2: Ch 3, 2 DC in the same stitch, *Ch 3, 2 DC in next SC*; repeat *-* and join at the beginning Ch 3 with the SL ST. Total 12 DC, 6 Ch-3 Space.

R3: Ch 1, SC in the same stitch and next DC, 4 SC in ch-3 space, *SC in next 2 DC, 4 SC in Ch-3 space*; repeat *-* and join at the beginning SC with the SL ST. Total 36 SC.

R4: Ch 3, DC in next SC, Ch 3, skip next SC, DC in the next 2 SC, ch 3, * 1 DC in the next 2 SC, Ch 3, skip next SC, DC in the next 2 SC, Ch 3, skip next SC*; repeat *-* throughout and join at the beginning Ch 3 with a Sl ST. Total 24 DC, 12 Ch-3 Space.

R5: Repeat R3 around. Total 72 SC. Cut the yarn and sew the strangling yarn.

To increase the base, repeat R4 and R5. R6 will contain 36 DC, 18 Ch-3 space. R7 should be 108 SC.

Petals:-

Inner Petal Layer:

Attach the yarn around the base of the 1st DC of R2 from flower base with the SL ST.

R1: Attach the yarn around the base of the 1st DC of R2 from flower base with the SL ST. The 2nd round of base contains 12 DC. We will be working on these 12 DC posts to form the petals. 2 DC will be used to form one petal. We have to work on these DC posts.

R2: Lift the DC post and work on creating 1st petal on that DC post – Ch 3, 4 TR, Ch 2, Turn your work and make 2nd DC as the working DC post – 4 TR, Ch 3. SL ST at the base of the 2nd DC. One Petal is formed.

*Turn your work, choose next 2 DC, (SL ST, Ch 3, 4 TR) on 1st DC, Ch 2, turn and lift the next DC, ( 4TR, Ch 3, SL ST) on the 2nd DC*. Repeat this *-* for other 4 sets. Total 6 Inner Petals. Cut the yarn and sew the stranding yarn.

Outer Petals Layer:

R3: The 4th round of the flower base contains 24 DC. We will be working on these 24 DC posts to form the outer petal layer. 2 DC will be used to form one petal. Repeat R2 on these 24 DC posts to make 12 Petals. Cut and sew the stranding yarn. Total 12 Petals.

If you have increased the base then repeat R2 on 36 DC. You should get 18 Petals.

If the lifting of the post and working around DC sounds confusing then check out the video.

Stem and Tag:-

Locate the centre at the back of the flower and SL ST on the base of the DC. Chain 50+ to get 5″+ stem. I have chained 50 times and attached the Knot My Designs Tag at the end.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn defines the size of the flower. I have used 4-ply yarn and 4.5 mm crochet hook and the flower diameter is 5″. To increase the diameter you can either choose a bulkier yarn and bigger crochet hook.
  2. The petals of the flower contain 2 layers – inner layer and outer layer. To increase the flower size, you can also increase the base and add another layer of petals.
  3. Make sure you check each petal after completion to avoid frogging at the later stage.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 5″
  • White Petals Flower: 5″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, tassel at the end of the bookmark
  • You can remove the string and attach a paper clip for bookmark or Hair Clip for making a hair accessory.
    Or paste it on your wrapped item to make an interesting wrapping gift style.
  • You can add your tag.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Popcorn Stitch Flower Bookmark - kNot mY deSigns

Popcorn Stitch Flower Bookmark

Like any other kid, my childhood was spent behind Hardy Boys, the Famous Five, the Secret Seven and the Agatha Criste series. I was a voracious reader and would spend most of the time reading them. These books had adventure, mystery, a lesson to be taught and a message meant to be shared.

Thankfully, the kids of the 90s had either books or outdoor games, and none of the computer games and mobile phones games that we see everywhere today. Though there are still many children’s book series such as the Harry Potter, Eragon and the adventures of Narnia, there are lesser takers of these books.

And this is not only for the children. Reading should never stop with age. However, as we grow, we get so busy in our daily chores that we get even lesser time to pick that book from the shelf and flip through the pages. All the incredible collection of the books end up gathering the dust on the bookshelves.

In order to break this habit and get into reading again, I made my first bookmark years ago, and I have been making more of these since. This time not only for me but for my friends and family members. A lovely bookmark is yet another incentive to open the book and read. It certainly worked for me.

Here, I searched for a flower pattern especially, to gift to my colleague’s daughter. A creative bookmark for her; a gift and a habit that she can confidently flaunt.

Process:

I was looking for flower pattern to make a bookmark. I liked the Popcorn pattern from B.Hooked. The pattern uses Popcorn stitch to create the flower.

The pattern contains 2 steps:

  1. to create the popcorn stitch flower
  2. to form the string and tassel.

Popcorn Stitch Flower:-

R1: Starting with the Magic Circle, Chain 1 (CH), 8 Single Crochet (SC); Join with Slip Stitch (SL ST) on 1st SC.

R2: Ch 2, *create a Popcorn¹ in SC, Ch 1*; repeat *-*, join with SL ST on Ch 2.

R3: Ch 2, *create 2 Popcorns¹ in ch 1 space, Ch 1*; repeat *-*, join with SL ST on Ch 2.

¹Popcorn Stitch: [5 DC in the same stitch. Drop the loop from the hook but do not pull.Inserting the hook from front to back, pick top loops of 1st DC and the dropped loop, slip stitch to form the popcorn. ]

If you are unable to get the written pattern, click here for the video.

Tassel and String:-

Choose the yarn that you want to form the string and tassel. I picked up green left over yarn to form the stem and the tassel. I used this link to make the tassel and crocheted chain 50+ to form the stem. Sew them together to form the Flower Bookmark.

While forming the stem, I added my tag in between in the chains.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 9″
  • Flower Diameter: 3″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • 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!!

Crochet Flower Power Bookmark - kNot mY deSigns

Flower Power Bookmark

I believe in “Padho Aur Padhao” mantra. This means to read and teach. Learn and spread your learning.

The changing technology has enabled us to become mobile, by bringing everything into a digital form, including the book. Kindle, E-Book sites, Hub list, your local library online account etc. gives us ample options to read anywhere and anytime digitally.

However, I am still an old school gal. I like the feel of the book, Illustrative book cover and using bookmarks to save my page. It gives me a great escape from electronic devices too. Working in front of the computer for long hours, checking mobiles for chats and calls, using tab for handling all social media networking already involves too much of screen glare. Reading a book, a physical paper book gives me pleasure, keeps my eyes away from the display screen and creates a quiet meditation zone for me.

Previously, I used to buy books and bookmarks with creative quotes but now since I know to crochet, I love creating interesting bookmarks that push me to buy more books and read more!

And now, I want everyone to try out this old school book reading method by making creative, funny or attractive bookmarks. Pick a book and flaunt it with your creative bookmark. Here, I tried crocheting few flowers and turned them into girly Flower Power bookmarks!

Easy to make, easy to carry, easy to your eyes and mind!

Process:

I was looking for flower pattern to make a bookmark. I liked this Flower pattern from Rescued Paw Designs. The pattern uses Single Crochet stitch to create the flower and Bobble stitch to form the centre.

The pattern contains 2 steps:

  1. to create the flower petals.
  2. to form the string and centre bud.

Flower Petals:-

R1: Starting with a Magic Circle, Ch 1 and 12 Single Crochet (SC); Slip Stitch (SL ST) with 1st SC. Total 12 SC.

R2: Chain 8, SC from the 2nd chain from the hook, 7 SC in next 7 Chains; SL ST Back Loop on the next SC.

R3-R12: Repeat R2.

Working on the Front Loop of the R1 SC Round, Chain 6, SC from the 2nd chain from the hook, 5 SC in next 5 Chains; SL ST Front Loop on the next SC.

Bud and String:-

Create a Bobble stitch and join to the 1st chain to form a bud. Chain 50+ to form the stem of 7″+. In the end, I have added the Knot My Designs Tag. Since the yarn was thick so I left 9″ yarn to form the stem and attached the Knot My Designs tag.

You can add tassel or leaves or pom-pom or leave at that.

¹Bobble Stitch: [Chain 4, DC from the 3rd chain from the hook keeping the last loop on the hook, 4 DC in the same chain keeping the last loop on the hook (In total there will be 5 loops on the hook= original loop and partial DC). Slip Stitch on all the loops and slip stitch on the last chain to a Bobble Stitch].

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 9″
  • Flower diameter: 3″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, tassel at the end of the bookmark
  • You can remove the string and attach a paper clip for bookmark or Hair Clip for making a hair accessory.
  • Or paste it on your wrapped item to make an interesting wrapping gift.
  • You can add your tag.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Striped Pencil Bookmark - Knot My Designs

Striped Pencil Bookmark

A weekend spent in the lap of woods, connecting with nature and enjoying the beauty of mother earth; there is nothing more psychotherapeutic than this. A walk in the park, surrounded by trees, streams or creeks, and birds animals, is also emotionally purging than working out in a gym, which focuses only on our body.

One of our usual activity is walking in the park. I am fortunate that San Antonio Parks and Recreation Authority has created and maintained so many parks all across the city. While enjoying the Salado Creek I recorded this interesting sound of the birds and the owls. I tried to look for bird’s nest but couldn’t spot any in this dense forest.

I deeply enjoyed the sound of chirping. Suddenly, I struck with the idea of holding a contest. Listen to the sounds that the birds make to communicate among themselves and imagine if they are talking like humans. I loved the participation of the contestants. The responses were entertaining. A couple of them got excited and responded more than once.

Below is the video of the contest that I posted on the Facebook page: theknotmydesigns. You all are welcome to post your conversation too!!! The participation is every lasting!!!

P.S. For your active participation, you will be eligible for free gift i.e. A pencil bookmark from Knot My Designs!!!

The conversation contest: Translate the conversation

In order to thank them for their active participation, I designed Thank You Cards for them and gifted a Pencil bookmark. Below is the striped pencil bookmark. Since I believe in to learn and teach mantra ->

“Padho Aur Padhao”

It was another attempt for my fellow participants to buy books and read more.

Process:

The pattern is stripped which involves one base colour (BC) and another contrasting colour (CC). I have mainly worked on the CC-2BC-CC-2BC-CC-2BC-CC pattern using Single Crochet (SC). There are a couple of pencil designs having 3BC-CC-3BC-CC-3BC and BC-2CC-2BC-2CC-2BC-CC. The pencil cone contains BC as the skin and the tip with CC.

Pencil Length:- 

R1: Starting with Base colour (BC), Chain 30+1. SC from 2nd hook. Ch 1 and turn. Total 30 SC.

R2: With BC, SC in every SC. Change to CC and Ch 1 and turn. Total 30 SC.

R3: With CC, SC in every SC. Change to BC and Ch 1 and turn. Total 30 SC.

Continue SC in every row, Ch 1 and turn.

Follow the sequence of 2BC-CC-2BC-CC-2BC. With CC, SC around to form a border of. 3 SC in the corner SC to form a clear rectangular edge.

Pick one side and start working on the pencil base cone and the tip.

Base Cone and Tip:-

R1: Using BC, Ch 1 and SC 10 times. Ch 1 and turn. Total 10 SC.

R2: SCtog, 6 SC, SCtog. Ch 1 and turn. Total 8 SC.

R3: SC in every SC. Ch 1 and turn. Total 8 SC.

R9: SC in every SC. Ch 1 and turn. Total 2 SC.

R10: SCtog and Slip Stitch and sew the remaining strand.

Crochet Nature Captured in Books Free Bookmark Pattern - Knot My Designs

Nature Captured in Books

“One of the oldest arguments in the history of psychology is the Nature vs Nurture debate. Each of these sides has strong points making it harder to decide whether a person’s development is predisposed in his DNA, or a majority of it is influenced by his life experiences and environment” (as mentioned in Explorable in Nature vs Nurture).

This is not just about humans but nature at large. What would have happened if the earth was without any flora or fauna?

Even though other planets look fascinating, they fail to come any closer to the Earth, which looks so beautiful and colourful with the greenery and oceans.

How about bringing the same beauty to your bookshelf, bedroom, and office?  Thanks to crochet! You don’t need to pluck flowers to bring them home; just have crochet flower and leaves as bookmarks!

Process:

  1. Leaflet Bookmark: I used the same leaf pattern that I have selected for the Christmas Wreath for Leaflet Bookmark. I am just obsessed with this leaf pattern.
  2. Sunny Petal Flower Bookmark: I liked the flower from Ravelry and made one as a bookmark. The same pattern could be used as an embellishment on hats, brackets, necklaces scarves, headband etc.
  3. Dark Rose Flower Bookmark: The complete instructional blog could be accessed from this link Dark Rose Flower.
  4. Maple Fall Bookmark: I am always inclined to Irish Crochet. I used the leftover leaf from Maple Wreath and converted into a bookmark.
  5. Bell Flower Bookmark: The pattern is in Bell Flower post.
  6. Maple Leaf Bookmark:  link is already posted.
  7. Pansy Leaf Bookmark: The complete blog could be accessed from this link for Pansy Leaf.

Crochet Dark Rose Flower Bookmark Free Pattern for Book Lovers - Knot My Designs

Dark Rose Flower Bookmark

When in Bangalore, I used to love visiting Crosswords bookstore, reading the books and collecting the bookmarks that came with the books. These were card strips with rhymes, images printed on it. The witty one-liner, creative images excited me,  so much that I would collect them all together. I still don’t know, if it were the love for those interesting bookmarks or the love of reading books that pulled me to Crosswords every time.

Well, far from Bangalore and Crosswords, in my world of Crocheting, I still recall them. In crocheting, there are various flower patterns used as embellishments for the scarves, hats, warmers etc. I decided the make few of these flower patterns and instead of attaching them to a clothing, I decided to make a bookmark. Different variety of flowers, small leaves, small petals, and thin long stems. It is an interesting way to use the left-overs yarn in your Stash Basket too. I always wanted to learn how to make a rose using crochet. This was an exciting project to work on!

Process:

I used 2 different patterns to make this Dark Rose Flower Bookmark. I loved the crochet pattern of rose flower from SkipToMyLou – Easy Rose Crochet Pattern. I chose leaves design from LakeViewCottageKids – A Little Leaf Pattern. For the stem, I made chain 60+ ( enough to cross the length of the book). Sew them all together to create a rose flower stem.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 9″
  • Rose diameter: 4″
  • Rose Leaf: 1″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pompom.

WOOF! WOOF!

My friend liked my nature inspired bookmarks. She certainly qualifies all the above criteria too! When she asked me to make a bookmark for her, I certainly knew it was neither flowers nor leaves, but something different from what she could get usually around. And, what could be the better than a dog bookmark to a Dog Lover Bookworm!

Process:

I was looking a lot amigurumi but the sizes were too big for carrying as bookmarks. So I went for crochet appliques.  liked this Dachshund Applique by ONE and TWO COMPANY. I added one more ear on the other side to give a 3D look. Now instead of keeping bone separately from the dog, I linked them both with a chain.

Where’s my bone? Where’s my bone? Ah! it’s in the end of this book.

Product Specifications:

  • String length: 7″
  • Dog size: 4″
  • Bone size: 1″

Optional Alterations:-

  • 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!!

Crochet Maple Leaf Bookmark Free Pattern for Book-Lovers - Knot My Designs

Maple Leaf Bookmark

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.

Process:

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!

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 9″
  • Maple Leaf: 2″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • 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!!

Crochet Green Pansy Leaf Bookmark Free Pattern for Book Lovers - Knot My Designs

Pansy Leaf Bookmark

Every product that I create, I treat as my project.

A Project in IT world, includes a plan, an estimate, and a forecast. Being an IT employee, these fundamental points have gotten into my habit, and hence in every work I do, be it professional, hobby or any passion-driven. And moreover, these products or creative items also have a defined timeline, like any project.

The best part is, it gives me a sense of accomplishment when I complete them, within the defined timeline. I do rework on them if I am not happy with the final outcome. I consider blankets, shrug, placemats, floor mats, and my other previous works, as big projects since they take days (even weeks) to complete. And I pick up small items that could be prepared within hours, to get a break from working on complicated, challenging or big projects. Leaves, flowers, bracelets, bookmarks and places are examples of these easy projects that require at utmost 1-2 hours to complete.

I liked Pansy leaf pattern and I chose to make this Pansy leaf bookmark for my another book.

Process:

I took the leaf pattern from LookWhatIMade – Pansy Leaf Pattern but increased the initial chain count to 13 as my wool was of fine quality.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Leaf size: 3″
  • String length: 7″

You can alter the sizes based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • 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!!

Crochet Bell Flower Bookmark Free Pattern for Book-Lovers - Knot My Designs

Bell Flower Bookmark

Sitting idle for some time gave me the craving to make small objects that I can complete quickly within hours and also feel good that I achieved something at the end of the day. It influenced me to crochet few small items.

Though big projects are always exciting and the end product displays all of the hard work, dedication, and love that has been put onto that. But sometimes you are looking to make something that is easy to make and also looks graceful.

Bookmarks are always easy to create. Knowing my necessity and inclination towards bookmarks, I opted for crocheting a flower which will serve as a bookmark too.

Process:

I started browsing for different flower patterns. Especially, the ones that I have been planning to work on. After a long search, I came across a bell-flower pattern given in Mazkwok – Blue Bell Flower. I chose my bell-flower as white with dark green sepals and dark brown stamen and stem.

I followed the pattern for flower and sepals as mentioned on the blog. For stamen and stem, I made a chain 60+ and single crochet from 2nd chain to the starting chain. I pulled the stem into the flower to make stamen. Sew sepals, flower, and stem together.
 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • String length: 9″
  • Flower circumference: 3″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • 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!!
