For day 2 of #blog12daysxmas
This is a great little knitting project and gift idea, the “Linen stitch bookmark” from Joelle Hoverson’s More last minute knitted gifts.
The pattern recommends Alchemy Yarns of Transformation, which does look gorgeous, but I made this bookmark with some leftover Noro Silk Garden sock yarn. I do love linen stitch, the way it looks almost woven on the front side, but even the rear has a lovely seed stitch effect and both sides show off variegated yarn beautifully.
If you think of it, a book mark is really just like a tiny tiny scarf so you could easily come up with other ideas for stitch patterns. Like a scarf, you just need something that will sit flat and with yarn light enough to easily slide inside the pages of a favourite book.
