Free Knitting Project: How to Knit a Bookmark / Easy to Knit Craft

A bookmark is a great project if youíre looking to practice your knitting skills with something you have ready to use in less than an hour. Itís also a chance to try out projects like color changing. You can make a striped bookmark that makes a great gift for bookworms.

This project is done in the seed stitch, which is great for projects that need to be sturdy and flat. The seed stitch is a simple, two row pattern and all you need are your knit and purl stitch skills.

 

Learn how to knit a bookmarker.

Materials:

1 pair size 7 knitting needles

1 skein sportweight  yarn, color A

(Optional: 1 or more additional colors if youíre making stripes)

Cast on 12 stitches.

Easy knitting project: How to make a bookmarker.

Row 1: *K1, P1* Continue in pattern till end of row

Row 2: *P1, K1* Continue in pattern till end of row

You can make your bookmark as long as you like. If you would like to change color, you can do that at any time.

When you get to how long you want your bookmark to be, Bind off.

Trim ends.

*Remember to always move the yarn from front to back, or back to front when you go from a knit to a purl or a purl to a knit!

Easy knitting project: How to make a bookmark.

Enjoy reading a book and keeping your spot with your new knitted bookmark!

An Idea... Make bookmarks for your friends in their school colors! (They make great gifts!)

 

*A note on changing colors: If you are using more than one color, make stripes at least 2 row each. When changing colors, simply feed the yarn from the new color into first stitch of new row. Be sure to keep yarn pulled firmly, especially yarn from the color youíve just finished using. This easier than you might imagine, but keeping the stitches pulled firmly but not too tightly is the secret.
